A scarier, wider version of the Capita Horrorscope Snowboard.
- Reverse camber tip and tail and level base between the bindings improve freestyle feel, control, and float in pow
- Flat Kick technology adds control, quick edge-to-edge turns, and pop that you normally lose on reverse camber boards
- Radial sidecut for smooth consistent turning arcs
- SS Core is stable, damp, and full of pop
- FORM 6 Fiberglass Configuration biaxial fiberglass stitching on top and bottom allow smooth responsive turn initiation and added snap
- Extruded Base is jib-specific and easy to maintain
- Full Wrap Around Steel Edges for slaying rails and excellent durability

I bought this board at the beginning of last year. I've probably been riding ~15 days with it.
A little background. I have been riding for about 8 years, 25 years old now. I ride all mountain, but like parks...rails and jumps. I'm not about to get sponsored, but i dabble...
This board is awesome if your looking for a fun deck to mess around with. I ride in the east, so all there is to ride is sub par parks and groomers. I ride with mostly skiiers (i know i know) who don't do much park, so i find myself buttering around groomers most of the day. Board works great in all types of snow conditions. Ice, chord, park, all good. I used to ride a Forum Peter Line, around 2005 year.... its a very different board. This thing rocks on boxes and rails. Only negative i can tell you is it is not the most stable board landing bigger jumps. I have found countless times if you land a little in the backseat you slip out VERY quickly. I have seen from videos my friends shoot of the board flexing like a bananna on landings. Its not the boards fault, its just the design of the semi-rocker (aka flat kick). The board is also not amazing at high speeds, and feels a little squirly, but then again its not an alpine board. All in all Its a great board to ride and is super fun to mess around on. Oh and the graphics are pretty dope too.. I'll post a pic later.

Would riding a wide with size 10 boots be ok?
Yeah man you will be good. Really you would only notice if the waist width was WAY different. Like a reg deck that is a 150 with a waist of 248 compared to a usual waist of a wide deck that is around 260. You might be a little thrown off by the split second more it takes to go from edge to edge, but you really wont notice much of a difference. Flex patterns are different from reg to wide aswell, but only a little and they usually beef up wide decks a lil more. So its up to you in the end. If you are still growing, then I would suggest to get a wide as you will prob be getting bigger boots in the near future. Hope this helps bro

would this board go good with the union contacts in creamsicle?
As far as color matching? I think Purple and orange compliment each other, should look tight. As far as flex, also a good matching.
I love my contacts yo(i got the '10 CMYK print). So comfy, no pressure points, sick looking and suuuper amount of flex. Plus with the FK in this board, you will feel it all and never second guess yourself about huckin that fs7 bec it will just feel so natural. And yes they will match, colors will be sickeningggg
this board is awesome... but do not ride backcountry kuz i was hittin a lil 45 footer and i landed wrong and broke the nose it is awesome for rails and hills tho but in my opinion (if thats how u spell it) you want to go all around backcountry, park, streets, wuteva the go the libtech skate bannana its the s**h sir... but this board is allot of fun
Horrifically rad but in a wide version
Capita nailed reverse camber with their Flat Kick. The zero camber on the Horrorscope between the inserts keep the board from being squirily while the kicked up tip and tail make pressing and turning effortless. Still plenty of meat to the board so kickers aren't a problem. All this for $349??? No wonder this is CAPiTA's best selling snowboard and a Transworld Snowboarding Good Wood snowboard winner for 2010!

How soft is this board? Could you compare it with other similar boards? Will work the 151W with 12 boot size, 5'8 and 150 lbs?
yes on boot size and its really soft butter for days

would it work for all moutian if you were 5 10 160
You could try but this is a very PARK specific board. It is reverse camber and very soft so it is not made for cruising all over the mountain. Hence it is made to ride very loose and soft. Made more for jibbing and not so much for pow turns and hardpack.

I'm 6'1" and 200 pounds with a size 12 boot. do you think i can use the 155W? I already ride a 155W 5150 stroke but I want the reverse camber. is the horrorscope too soft for my weight though?
You would be able to ride it just fine. However because of your size and the fact that is it reverse camber it would basically limit the board to park riding and jibbing around. Basically it just would not be good for all mountain/pow riding.
while what andrew says is slightly true....you can ride any snowboard anywhere. dosnt mean your gonna be a champ in alaska with this board but u can ride anywere with just about any board. its all personal preference
T and A bro...T and A
It all depends on how hard you ride it, what you take it off, and how many days you ride. Its soft, but if you're not doin 30ft drops and adding all that pressure on your tail or tip or whatever, then you're good. If you are doin more of an all-mountain then go for something a lil bigger, just because of your weight. But with reverse cambered decks you technically can ride something 5cm shorter than what you regularly ride (I personally wouldnt but thats just me). So yes you can ride it just fine, and no you will not limit yourself to JUST riding park. But if I were you, I would go for atleast a 157 if I could (but I don't think they make them in 57). Im 6' 165lbs and I ride a Rome Machine 154W, but the deck could definately handle more weight. I just hope for everyones sake Capita took care of their de-lamming problem, thats why I switched companies. Not saying they are bad decks tho, they just need to address a few things and I hope they did
