Capita Snowboarding - Defenders of Awesome
Capita and their bad ass snowboarding team have well earned the title “Defenders of Awesome”. Capita are one of the most progressive and creative snowboard brands out there and are amongst the core brands that put fun right at the top of their priorities list. Their snowboard team roster features the heaviest hitters and sickest shredders, from Scott ‘Sleepy’ Stevens to Jess Kimura and Kazu Kokubo. Capita snowboards are known for their high quality manufacture and technical features, with “the Black Snowboard of Death” being hailed as one of the best snowboards in the world for 2014. Founded in 2000 by Jason Brown and Blue Montgomery, Capita are all about making awesome snowboards.
Brisse, Stevens, Kimura - A Pro Model for Every Style
Capita’s snowboard collection is loved by freestyle snowboarders and freeride snowboard shredders the world over. Three-time X-games winner Dan Brisse’s pro model, for example, the DBX ‘The Dan Brisse Experience’ comes in three different lengths and variants. The 151 reverse camber DBX is the ultimate jib board courtesy of a rocker that makes it floaty, easy to turn and super playful, while the 154 Zero Camber is a no-holds-barred park destroyer. Zero camber rides more precisely than a rocker, but is still softer and more forgiving than a traditional camber snowboard - the perfect middle ground. The 157 hybrid camber DBX is the one you want if you’re riding backcountry. The hybrid camber combines elements of both positive camber and rocker boards to give you the best of both worlds and make riding pow and pillow lines even more fun.
Widely regarded as one of the most creative snowboarders in the world, Scott Stevens has bagged himself a sick freestyle pro model from Capita for 2014. The Scott Stevens Pro Model is a light, twin tip, hybrid rocker board that lets you get creative wherever and whatever it is you’re shredding, just like ol’ Sleepy Stevens himself.
The Jess Kimura Pro Model is the dream snowboard for any girl looking for a high performance, all mountain freestyle board. Kimura’s board is a twin tip hybrid rocker with a medium flex and is perfect for tearing up the whole hill.
