    Because snowboarding should be fun.

    Keeping snowboarding's rebellious streak alive, the Capita Defenders of Awesome Snowboard is a label-defying board built for popping, spinning, and stomping across the entire mountain. A Good Wood award-winner every year that it's been in existence, this freestyle favorite delivers the perfect blend of pop, stability, and looseness so you can wildcard your way from park to peak.

    The Hybrid profile combines mellow camber between the inserts for pop, power, and edge hold with flat areas outside the bindings and a tiny bit of rocker just before the tip and tail to give it a forgiving feel and improved float in powder. Dual carbon rods running vertically down the board increase pop and rebound, and KEVLAR-bound sidewalls enhance impact-resistance and prevent breaks. The RFC Sustainable Dual core uses sustainably-harvested poplar to create a lightweight and lively feel and beech inserts running down the center to prevent binding blowouts and increase durability.

    Special Blend biax glass provides a smooth, consistent flex, and it's bonded with a new plant-based resin that's less harmful to the environment. Its true twin profile allows unrestricted switch trickery, but don't let that keep you from taking this thing out of the park, because it kills it all over the rest of the mountain too. It's finished off with a new Wax-Infused Enduro sintered base for increased durability and long-lasting speed.

    My Daily Driver

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my everyday snowboard, this board is a tank and can handle anything and everything the mountain has to offer. The flex of this board is perfect for pressing in the park while still being super stable at high speeds. This board also carves like a dream on those corduroy groomer days. There's a reason this board has won the Transworld snowboarding good wood award 5 years in a row. If your looking for a board that can handle everything and anything the mountain has to offer without breaking the bank look no further!

    If you have any questions on this board feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email! I would be more than happy to help you out!

    Award Winning Board!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Winning an award every year since hitting the market not to mention 5 Transworld Good Wood awards isn’t easy.. I’ve always been a fan of this board, it’s like the Swiss army knife of Snowboards.. Ready for anything the mtn has to throw at ya!! You can spend a bunch of Loot to buy a Quiver of boards or you can just buy this one board for everything!! It’s 3 way hybrid Camber story of Traditional Camber under foot combined w Zero & Reverse Camber at Tip/Tail make it so versatile across all terrain and styles of riding. I really like the twin shape & blended radial sidecut of the DOA and how nicely it turns! The Defenders of Awesome has a mid flex rating but you can ride this board aggressively or just cruise around Sk8’ing the mtn..; It has good float in Powder, It’s great in the park, on jumps and it also rails an edge when carving, Like I said the Swiss Army Knife of boards!

    Cannot get more for the money!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the best snowboard you can buy for the money. It has more tech than most $500 boards, has won the good wood award and other accolades every year of it’s existence, and is the preferred board by most of the Capita team! Hybrid camber, a fast Sintered base, Carbon for snap, and Kevlar for durability! You will not be disappointed!
