The Capita Black Snowboard of Death is taking its toll on the snowboard industry. Initially designed for a certain pro-rider this deck was unleashed on the masses when that pro quite as Capita was just getting off of the ground. Now in its fifth season the Black Snowboard of Death has killed many other companies cookie-cutter freestyle clones with its high-performance handling and underground appeal. Word of this board's exploits have spread like the plague since winning a Top Ten Good Wood award and devouring the field at Transworld's Team Challenge. Capita breaths life into this ominous deck with custom-woven fiberglass, deadly carbon-fiber reinforcement, and sick gold inserts. Choose death.

all mountain jib stick!
Ive been riding all kinds of boards the last few seasons here in America and in New Zealand. This is the one board I would pack if I was only allowed one board in my bag. It goes everywhere: park and pipe, trees and pow. I love it. Top it off cute girls on the topsheet. Capita has done away with the slider system from last years board, and that has just made the board better.
BSOD - Black Snowboard Of Death
The board is great. Stable at high speeds, hits jumps and landings with great stability. Lets out a nice popping sound on landings. I've taken it all over the mountain. The only place it does not excel in is on the rails. But the board was not designed for rails, so this was expected. Overall, great board. I'd recommend it for those who don't care for rails.
OK been on the slope now - Super responsive, fast as ****, loadsa pop and feels real light on ya feet. It's a shredder.
Just taken delivery of my Capita, the Black Snowboard of Death. I ordered a 159cm model and must say it looks the business. You should note that the top sheet is a really deep/dark almost black gray color (not light gray), and that makes it look the shiznit even more with the Black (you could say Black on Black) and Gold graphic. Initial thoughts are that the board is stiffer than I was expecting but I'll update you when I've had chance to ride it!
