Enter the dark side.
Drop into the dark side of all-terrain destruction with the Capita Black Snowboard of Death. This freeride board pillages powder, slays steeps, and terrorizes trees with effortless float, powerful response, and quick-turning agility. Made for powerful riders, the Black Snowboard of Death features a stiffer flex that's best suited for pointing it down steeps and carving at scary-fast speeds.
Its directional shape and slight tapering naturally sink the tail in deeper snow, keeping the nose up and planing on epic powder days. Further contributing to the board's freeride prowess, its Mountain FK profile features mid-board camber, with a custom-tuned nose rocker and zero-hybrid tail. Ultimately, this produces an ideal combination of effortless float in powder, razor-sharp response for charging steeps, and powerful edge hold to carve with precision.
Capita placed its lightest Hover Core in the Black Snowboard of Death, keeping the board incredibly light underfoot, with plenty of snap and strength needed to send backcountry kickers and stomp cliff drops. 4x 30mm Nano-Carbon forks deliver 25% more compressive strength than standard carbon boosters for incredible stability at high speeds. Additionally, the board's urethane topsheet anchor works to reduce impacts, much like an ultra-thin shock absorber. And if that didn't have you salivating, then the brand new Nano-Carbon Race base will—it's Capita's fastest base ever.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I always start reviews saying what a board is and isn't.
First, it's not a damp board. If you want something to eat up crappy terrain, there are better boards. It's a very light core, and they streamlined this thing with a lot of tech, while not loading the board with resin. Therefore, you have a very lively, poppy board, but terrain eater it is not.
What the board is. The board generates amazing power for a fairly mellow freeride stick. Carving is a blast on this board. Some people say the nose flaps a little. If you can ride, this won't bother you. If you are intermediate, again, get a Never Summer deck loaded with resin to give you confidence.
This deck also floats like a powder board. I also own a Spring Break Tree Hunter, and was shocked how well this deck stacks up. While the Tree Hunter is a powder field dream, the BSOD isn't far behind. The BSOD is very hard to sink, and you won't get that back leg fatigue. You can ride pow lazy and be confident that you won't go over the handle bars.
Also, for a camber dominant board, it is really quick edge to edge because of a nice medium torsional flex. This is the thing that makes this board special. If you want to work for your turns and power through your camber, there are better board. This board instead can charge, but generates a ton of power without destroying your legs. Early morning corduroy? Not many boards I'd rather take out. Extremely fast, fairly agile (something you don't typically say about a freeride board), and a board you can lay a trench, or get edge to edge quickly with tight radius turns.
Last, need a tree board? Here you go. Great float, maneuverable, and a light board that gives you confidence that you can knife through it.
Highly recommended. Again, order for what I described, but if you are expecting a super damp, destroy all snow and point it through it, you might want a different board. If what I described sounds good, you have a winner.
