"I LOVE THIS DECK!" 1/31/2011
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Capita The Green Machine Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Fast base, Extremely durable, Soft flex with trad. camber = happiness
  • Cons:  Price?,

Experience:   Can't say enough good things about this board. I am a born-again camber fan and this deck is to blame. I'm 5'7 180 and I ride a 152. I ride at Stevens Pass and Snoqualmie in Washington, and we get all sorts of crazy conditions here. I ride this board in literally everything. Powder it's obviously not the best board (strictly because I'm riding a short size), but for EVERYTHING else it kills it. I drop decent sized drops (25-30 feet) and I am able to stomp them out with confidence thanks to the rock solid traditional camber. Park this board is AMAZING! I've got a 2011 Ultrafear and while reverse camber is fun and refreshing, going back to a really soft camber board has me grinning all day long. Landing the big park booters feels great with this deck, and with its soft flex pulling off presses is easy-peasey. And the POP! My god I almost forgot how it felt to ride a board with camber pop! Plus, it's durable. I ride a lot and this board was built to handle it. Base is still in great shape and the top sheet is still crisp too, and that's something that is NOT normal for me after 30+ days of riding a board. Although this board is in the upper price range for Capita, relative to other companies the amount of tech and the quality you get is really incredible. It's well worth your money! Plus, it's eco friendly. Not that I really care either way, but if you can get an awesome board while being somewhat environmentally friendly at the same time then why not?

Do you ride the 152 or 154?

StoopheadFred
Check da review, 152. If I were to ride one now I'd probably go 152 for park, 154 for all mountain and a 156 for all mountain/pow.



"Great freestyle stick" 2/18/2009
Helpful Review?   (3) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Ride Kink
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Carving,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Popular model, Strong edgehold, Great value, Popular on mountain, Soft, Well known brand
  • Cons:  Sluggish

Experience:   Great park board, it has some really nice flex and is awesome on rails and boxes. I've got the 08 version, but from what I've heard it's really no different than this years. Slimewalls are superb, I've given it some nasty dings and it's still goin strong. Only complaint I have about this board is the base isn't exactly the best, it doesn't hold wax very well. But hey, for the price who cares.
"Capita is definitely on to something" 11/17/2009

  • Name: 2010 Capita Horrorscope FK
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Butters,Groomed,Jibs,Jumps,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Really fun, Poppy, Versatile
  • Cons:  NONE,

Experience:   Oh my god I'm completely in love with this board! It's the perfect board for someone who loves park, but also likes to take their freestyle tricks all over the mountain. Ground tricks are a breeze, the board is so easy to manipulate it's disgusting. The FK has a nice loose feel, and the pop is much more comparable to that of a skateboard. I love this thing, if I had to have only one board it would be a toss up between the Indoor Survival FK and the Horrorscope. Capita got reverse camber right, even Ride is copying the FK design now!

  • Name: 2009 Capita Scaremaster
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Boxes,Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Great value, Well known brand

Experience:   GREAT board. Don't listen to people on here though, it's really not all that soft. Don't get me wrong, it's softer than an all mountain board and stuff, but I bought this thinking it was going to be a bit noodley and that's not the case. It's not the best in pow, but I do have a 152. It's awesome on jibs though, just the right amount of flex. It handled the big booters at Snoqualmie just fine. Really helped me progress my skills, it's very poppy and very light. Makes you feel better than you may actually be haha
"Kills it everywhere" 2/11/2011

  • Name: 2011 K2 Turbo Dream Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Low Speeds,Off Trail,Park,Powder,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  Only need one board, Amazing float in powder, Great pop and awesome in the park
  • Cons:  Little heavy compared to Capitas,

Experience:   I love this board. It's my only board, I'm 5'8 180 and I've got a 156. Went from being happy with my Ultrafear to being STOKED on my Turbo Dream! I ride all over the mountain at Stevens pass and slay the park at Snoqualmie and this board handles it all perfectly. I love that I finally have a board that I can drop cliffs and pillow lines with AND pull off a nice press without having to compromise or feel like the board is out of its element. And honestly I don't know if it's just my imagination, but I definitely think I notice the Harshmellow tech. I was hot-lapping the park at Snoqualmie all day today and dropped this 15' drop about 20 times throughout the day and my legs don't even feel it. It's all I've ever wanted in a snowboard. Pure bliss with no muss or fuss about worrying which board to take out! A TRUE quiver killer!
"Sweet deal!" 1/13/2011

  • Name: 2011 Airblaster Air Goggles
  • Pros:  Wide viewing angle, Super flexible/durable frame, SO comfortable!
  • Cons:  MAY have trouble fitting on some helmets,

Experience:   Alright so I've got to admit, I was pretty skeptical when I was buying this goggle. I've never heard ANYTHING about them and I don't know anyone who has ever worn/seen/tried these. I figured what the hell, for $80 I'll take the risk. Can't even begin to tell you how happy I am with them! There are so many reason to love this goggle. The frame AND lens are very flexy, which is great because A) it helps the goggles form to your face and B) rigid lens/goggles can BREAK like my A-frames did to me! The new Baker lens is an awesome idea. It's a dual layered lens, with the outside being either clear/yellow/amber or whatever color you order and the INSIDE lense being the one that's mirrored. The reason this is so rad is because it all but eliminates lens scratches and minimizes their impact on your vision. If you're on the fence like I was, take the dive! You won't regret it!
"Dope" 8/28/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Burton Shank Slim
  • Pros:  3L Gore-tex performance shell (waterproof!), Durable, They're jeans!
  • Cons:  Slim fit (I've got a huge ass and thighs), They're jeans!,
  • Pant Fit:  Just right
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  It's a slim fitting pant for sure

Experience:   These pants are definitely a quality product. They do fit quite snugly on my big rump, but I like that style. The Gore-Tex performance shell is sure to keep you nice and dry (20/20k rating) and it's cool that you don't have to feel like a total chode if you wear these off the mountain (after a day of riding). They are a deep blue color, and Burton's tag says that they bleed and are designed to fade so watch out for this. All in all an awesome pair of pants that I'm definitely happy with!
"Not for hardcore days" 8/13/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 686 Mannual Field
  • Pros:  Durable, Warm
  • Cons:  Doesn't Breathe, Inadequate Protection

Experience:   It's an alright jacket for the price. There are definitely better ones out there. This jacket is a dark grey on lighter grey. No pink or white or whatever other people are talking about. It's a baggy fit. It's not the most waterproof, but it's warm. I wouldn't wear it when it's snowing, it doesn't have a high waterproof rating or fully taped seams. It does have a nice powder skirt though and nice wrist gaiters (but they don't have thumb holes so they're not held up by anything!) All in all a jacket that has little place in my wardrobe, give me a good shell over this thing any day! But for the money and the customer this jacket is aimed at I suppose it works. Not for the snow enthusiast.
"Fully legit" 8/13/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Forum Destroyer
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Heel hold, Comfortable, Easy lacing, Durable, Traction, Good quality, Warm, Breathable, Waterproofing, Easy in & out, Well known brand, Popular model
  • Fit:  wide

Experience:   These boots are super comfortable. I got the size 9 and I usually wear a 9.5-10, but I have super wide feet. These boots fit me perfect! I got them for $28 bucks and they've only been tried on once, so that was actually what made me get these boots, but I'm very glad that I did. They are easy to lace up and the liner has a very good inner lacing system (before this I wore a pair of Vans and let me tell you, there's nothing more annoying than a crappy inner lacing system).
"I really like them" 8/5/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton Mission
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Adjustability, Easy in & out, Boot hold, Durable, Good construction quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Well known brand
  • Cons:  Tricky instillation
  • Fit:  fits fine

Experience:   I really like these bindings. They're pretty lightweight (compared to other metal bindings) and they work very well. I do recommend you make use of all the adjustments this binding offers, because at first I didn't like them at all. Once I got motivated, I started messing around with stuff and I ended up with a great binding that fit my boots PERFECTLY! It was wild how much of a difference a bit of adjusting can make. Good flex for freestyle, not too much not too little. Only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because of the baseplate (I've broken 2 now, but Burton's customer service rocks and they replaced it, no questions asked either time)
"Awesome shell!" 8/4/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Special Blend Autograph (Print)
  • Pros:  Breathable, Durable, Lightweight, Waterproof
  • Description:  WEATHER: Cold and Blustery Day, Snow and Rain Mixed, Sleet, Storming and White Out, CHEST: Feels true to size, BODY: Feels too long, INSEAM: Feels too long,

Experience:   What an AWESOME jacket! I am so happy I got this thing. I haven't worn it out yet, but being a Gore-Tex shell with a 25K/15K waterproof/breathability rating how can you go wrong?? It's not as baggy as I would have thought (fit is a little more tailored towards tall/slender people). I like that it's a bit longer than other jackets, gives a nice look and I'm sure it'll help keep snow on the hill and out of my crack. I got it for $50 shipped so I'm extremely happy with the purchase.

Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Capita Horrorscope FK
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Use:  Boxes,Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Powder,Rails
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Popular model, Strong edgehold, Great value, Popular on mountain, Soft, Well known brand

Experience:   This board is the perfect park and play around stick. Very soft yet still very poppy, SUPER fun for jibs and flatland tricks. It's pretty noodley. Holds an edge pretty well, has a nice loose feel to it. Has a very skate inspired feel. One of my favorite boards I've ever ridden!
"Dookie" 7/22/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Ride LX
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Well known brand
  • Cons:  Heavy, Difficult in & out, Poor adjustability, Boot slippage, Uncomfortable
  • Fit:  feels too small

Experience:   These are absolute crap. I know it's an entry level binding and all, but compared to Burton's lower end models like the Mission and Custom and Freestyle this binding is total garbage. I had the 2009's and I broke one pair (highback actually SHATTERED), then I took it back and got a replacement pair and BROKE THOSE TOO! The straps on these are garbage, they're so hard to get out of but they ratchet up ok I guess. Plus, they're heavy as all hell. Do yourself a favor and avoid these bindings!
"Burton Elite Review" 3/17/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2007 Burton Elite
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Powder,Rails
  • Pros:  Durable, lightweight, Easy to carve, poppy, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Great value

Experience:   Great board, I've got the 151 that I picked up from Sports Authority and it's held up very well to the beatings I've been giving it at the park. Good flex, not too soft and not too firm. Great edge hold yet it doesn't seem to snag on boxes and other jibs. Does well on jumps. Base is a bit weak but it holds wax very well.
"Rossignol RPM Review" 3/17/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Rossignol RPM
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Carving,Groomers,Jumps,Powder
  • Pros:  Easy to carve, Stable at high speeds, Strong edgehold, Great value, Stiff
  • Cons:  Too stiff, Heavy

Experience:   Pretty good board for all-mountain and it can handle jumps pretty well, but it is too stiff for jibs. I was doing an urban rail with this and I landed a little hard on it and cracked the sidewall in two placed. More an all-mountain board than a park board.
"Needs better adhesive" 2/18/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Dakine Pyramid Studs
  • Pros:  Look pretty cool
  • Cons:  Depending on how you place these on your board they will hold a lot of snow/ice, making it nearly impossible to grab a hold of your board with your boots. Maybe I just applied them wrong, but either way this shouldn't happen. On top of that, one of them has already fallen off (I followed application instructions to a T!), and it looks like others are having the same problem. I think they need to use a different/stronger adhesive and maybe a different design.

Experience:   They looks cool, but in the end I wish I'd gone with a different stomp pad.
"Fog-be-gone" 2/18/2009
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2008 Smith Phenom Mirror
  • Pros:  Awesome goggles, got a great deal on them and I definitely don't regret it. I've always had a problem with goggles fogging up, and these are honestly the first ones I've had that don't have that problem. I've worn some of my friends Oakley Crowbars and Wisdoms, and it's amazing because those get your face so cold yet I still experience fogging. These goggles keep your face nice and warm, plus they actually prevent fogging! Great visibility as well, the sensor lenses give good depth perception in every condition I've come in contact with so far!
  • Cons:  None that I've experienced.

Experience:   Snag a pair!
