It's all in the name.
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.

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 well would this board work as a free ride board?
Recommended use is free ride!
