Description

Nearly automatic shredding.

In an era of overly complicated acronyms and dubious claims about funkily shaped boards, we're glad to see Capita sticking to its guns with the NAS snowboard. NAS stands for, among other things, Normal Ass Snowboard, so as you can probably imagine, there's no flash or gimmicks to be found here. Instead, underneath the sleek black topsheet, you'll find traditional camber, a directional twin shape, and a multi-radius sidecut, and it all adds up to an all-mountain ripper. Leave the gimmicks to those other guys, there's shredding to be done.

The NAS runs a traditional camber profile, for powerful turns and unrivaled pop. The directional twin shape gives you a bit more nose for deep snow float, while the boards remains otherwise a twin, so you won't sacrifice a thing when doing switch laps. There's two carbon fiber beams running inside of the edges, for improved grip and pop. A Black Fleece additive is used to reduce weight and improve strength throughout the board. The die cut sintered base is highly porous, so it holds a ton of wax and runs fast when you're straightlining into the big jump line.

for Fast ass snowboard. I'm speaking to not only the sintered base but also the boards ability to pretty much mash through anything - crust, choppy, powder, slushy or groomed snow. Literally takes this all with a breeze. With all these new reverse camber boards I've been riding over the past few years i've noticed that on days when its less than ideal (choppy, hard pack, ungroomed) that I have to billy goat down the trail because the damn space age reverse camber can't take the bumps. This board reminds me what it was like to ride the boards I grew up riding - what I will always think of as a Normal Ass Snowboard. I'm down for this board because so far it has gotten me down the hill easily on just about every condition. I especially like it because my girlfriend is a ski racer and it can be down right brutal trying to keep up with her if its not groomed snow or powder. But with this things solid camber profile paired with the speed base it's a hell of a lot easiar than it used to be.

Who would I recomend this to? probably a dude that is just trying cruise the whole mountain and is planning on riding one snowboard for the whole entire year. Maybe a half-pipe rider?

Who wouldn't I recomend this board to? one of those kids doing all the spinny-doo's on to rails.

I paired this board with a pair of Union Chargers, which are super stiff and responsive just like the board. . .let me tell you. . . match made in heaven!!!!

the normal ass snowboard is a good old quick turning charger.
this traditional cambered snowboard is reliable and predictable in fast down hill situations. added carbon along your feet from nose to tail maintain stability and pop. being a little back to center and on top of a progressive sidecut, makes the nas perfect for going "SFD". straight freaking down the mountain. upgraded this season finally to a sintered base gives you no reason to not buy this board for your quiver.
