Team rider Dustin Craven slays some of the heaviest backcountry features ever ridden 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 basalt fiber reinforcements 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.

Big Blunt Instrument with no Purpose

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Mellow. Of all the words provided in the description above, mellow is the only one I would agree with....and sluggish is more fitting.

I like traditional camber snowboards. I'm 160lbs, 5'5", and like running stadium stairs for breakfast. I was ideally looking for something with a traditional camber feel that is stable at high speeds (i.e. not a rocker or flying-v). After a demo of last year's 159cm model in park city, I was impressed with the pop and feel of the TFKA, so I bought the 2015 expecting more of of the same. The 2014 model featured carbon power rods, and they should have kept it that way, because the 2015 deck feels like a dead fish in comparison. They will say the basalt fiber and bamboo rods provide the feel of carbon at a discount, but a quick search on Wikipedia shows it's 4x heavier and not nearly as forgiving.

I rode the 2015 Totally FK'N Awesome for two days at Smugglers notch (VT) after a solid week of snow fall. Sticking to east coast groomers and powdery glades, I never found a place where this board felt at home. The board handles "fine" at high speed, but lacks the pop and playfullness I would expect from other all mountain boards. In the trees it was a boat. The entire back end is stiff and heavy, making it really tough to maneuver in bumps and moguls. Stiff, heavy, and sluggish, this beast goes where it wants to, and punishes you along the way. It does not care how experienced or strong a rider you are, you will feel every tree and miss every line.

I can not recommend this board to anyone I know. If you ride powder every day...maybe. It's a little heavy for hiking the backcountry, and once you're there it's not precise enough to ride below the tree line. On groomers it's competent, but feels more like a longboard than a snowboard. There were a few times I needed to check speed in mixed conditions, and found that it was unstable trying to stop on uneven snow. You really get the worst of all worlds here.

Backcountry was very generous in arranging a replacement, and with a few extra $$ I upgraded to the Burton Custom X, which was worth every penny. Moving fast and slow, the X feels like a sharpened scalpel compared to this plow.


    I like this board. Its definitely a stiffer, chargers snowboard built to handle anything you throw at it. The hybrid camber has tons of pop and with the nose and tail pulled up with reverse camber it floats pow super easy. I'm a big bamboo fan, its strong and holds its snap which this board has loads of it.

    how does this board feel for all mountain riding?

    How well would this board work as a free ride board?

    Recommended use is free ride!
