Tune your third eye into the freestyle-terrain telepathy bestowed upon you by the Capita Horrorscope FK Snowboard. The board's Urban FK profile possesses intuitive park and street capabilities, courtesy of flat camber between the bindings, with rocker out to the tip and tail kicks. The Urban FK profile allows you to butter and jib effortlessly, without worrying about your contact points catching on rails, jibs, or snow surfaces. As a ferocious jib and rail specialist, this board draws freestyle energy from its WDT Engineered Jib core, which utilizes a wood composite material for a soft flex without sacrificing durability. The pre-preg 420 fiberglass configuration creates lots of torsional flex, with energy memory for snapping ollies and launching onto jibs.
Capable of dismantling the burliest of rails and street obstacles, the Capita Horrorscope FK offers Anchormat reinforcements for tip and tail protection. This specialized material is bonded to the nose and tail kicks, reducing impact and stress-related fatigue when stomping hard landings and grinding. The freestyle-friendly HMC extruded base gives you easy maintenance, with or without constant waxing, and is more durable than standard extruded base materials, so it's ideal for street beatings or park thrashings.

I used to have a Capita shirt that said that back in the day. . .they must've been talking about this dealie . . . "the horrorscope." Because I have aggressivly smashed into rails, rocks, stairs, trees and even a trash can without catastrophic damage. I'm guessing this is because the thicker edges, the stronger core (apparently engineered specifically for rail riding), and the bumpers that are just in from the sidewall. I basically put this thing through hell and back. I mean, really snowboarded in some urban environments that were probably not considered in the engineering of this board.
This board has seen some serious trauma, that being said its still very rideable. I loved riding this board in terrain parks across the west and on handrails here in Salt Lake City, UT. If you are into park boarding (jibbing, buttering mini shredding) you'll love this thing. It is soft, manuverable and sturdy - really blast to get creative on.
Also, I have been thinking recently that this would be a great board to get started on. For one its cheap! for two, it turns very easily and smooth. For three, its soft enough that the rider will feel more in control rather controlled by the board.
So. . . . trying to jib? get this board! trying to butter? get this board! trying to have an all around good time in the park? get this board! trying to film a video part in the streets this winter? get this board! trying to crush moguls? get a different board!
want to learn how to ride a snowboard the easy way? get this board!
it doesn't let down! and it takes alot for it to break down!
This board is absolutely sick. Effortless turns, effortless presses, and all around just a fun time. I love the graphics too! Capita always comes through with the graphics. The severed arm on the base (last years model) just looks too cool. My only gripe with this deck was the edge I broke. Honestly, it could happen to any board given the situation. I caught it on an exposed rock early season. It wasn't too hard of a hit so I thought I'd be fine, but I was wrong. I sent it to Capita for warranty and they declined. As bummed as I was, they had the right to do so. If I had bought this deck from Dogfunk or Backcountry this would not have been a problem because they would have taken care of me! With all that being said, I still love Capita and this board, and will probably buy another in the future!
this board can take a beating. it's a favorite for taking down rails, getting creative in your back yard. wall rides, rail slides, flat ollies, this thing keeps going. park laps with your friends, hitting and jibbing everything in site, this board is for you. with armor cap nose and tail bumpers added a couple seasons back have preserved the life of these boards as well.
