CAPiTA Totally FK'N Awesome Snowboard - Men's: Totally Fk'n awesome: Awesomeness Purified.
Wreaking havoc on backcountry booters wherever he goes with the infamous 8 Mile crew, Dustin Craven conquers everything the British Columbia backcountry has to offer with the Capita Totally FK'N Awesome Snowboard. This ain't just a powder board though—Dustin rides this same deck for heavy park jumps and icy pipe sessions on the rare occasions when he leaves the Canadian wilderness.
The Hybrid FK profile features mellow camber from insert-to-insert for control, power, and edge hold, with flat areas outside the bindings for stability and a tiny bit of rocker just before the tip and tail to improve float in powder. V-Tech carbon rods radiating from under the binding areas out towards the tips maximize energy transfer for lightning-quick response. Custom Weave fiberglass optimizes resin performance to allow for a thinner core, which simultaneously reduces weight while achieving higher energy return. Speaking of the core and energy return, the Panda core is comprised of poplar for a lightweight and lively feel, and inlaid Bamboo Power Rods enhance pop.
The New Age Directional sidecut incorporates a reverse sidecut arc in the middle of the board to create an extra contact point for maximum grip on icy slopes. It's all topped off with a sintered base that retains wax well throughout the day and resists damage from rocks and stumps hidden beneath the snow.
Power when you need it and float when you want it, that's what you get with the Totally FK'N Awesome! This unique series features our Freeride FK hybrid-camber combination designed to manhandle each and every feature of Mother Nature's great mountainous terrain. For 2013/2014 the TFA is rocking the hot new Panda Core. This lightweight core has been designed with Bamboo Power Rods in the tip and tail for increased durability and insane ollie power. These are very versatile boards that will keep you smiling anywhere on the hill.
