This is an awesome board, season after season it will deliver.
A bit softer than when it started, I've really began to enjoy how this board rides. It's my go-to board for about 90% of the time unless there's a foot or more of fresh snow.
It doesn't quite have pop like a cambered board, but it's a breeze to lock onto rails and boxes. You also get a good amount of response so you can cruise down groomers between lapping the park.
It's a really light board, so if you take it into the trees, it's quick and maneuverable. Even when there's a bit of powder out, this board will float pretty decently and give you a surfy feel.
The base can take a beating, and stays pretty quick unless the snow gets really cold and abrasive.

i bought this season's 151 model after (admittedly) being super stoked after seeing scott stevens destroy everything in sight in his various video parts on this board. without any detuning, this bad boy holds an edge beyond what i expected and is extremely stable at high speed and accelerates to high speed easily with the wax infused sintered base. you can go from hauling ass to getting stupid in the park with zero problem. after riding this weekend though, i decided to take a bastard file and some 400 grit sand paper and heavily detuned the edges from tip/tail to inside the inserts, then mildly detuned from between the inserts to give it a bit more forgiving feel as it is way too sharp out of the box. even though it has a stiffer rating, it actually flexes out quite effortlessly. it's also extremely lightweight, noticeably lighter than my lib tech box scratcher. if you can get your hands on one, buy it without thinking. i preordered mine back in june to make sure i landed one. you may think you've experienced fear, but you haven't seen anything till you've experienced ultrafear. CAPiTAAAH!!!!

Today I am writing a review on the 2013 153 Capita Ultra fear FK snowboard. I bought this board at the beginning of the season. Ive had enough time to break it in and for me its one of the coolest boards Ive owned yet. Ive taken it through many park laps and powder days, all the days on it have been a good day.
Overall, if youre looking for a really good park board thats still fun on groomers and glades, this board is for you. The board was designed for freestyle, every feature Capita gave this board is meant for park. It has a flat camber between the feet for extra stability while riding, and right after the bindings it turns into a regular reverse camber board, and at the tip and tail it has Capitas own flat kick technology which makes it really easy to butter. The base is a mix of beech and poplar wood so that it holds its edge well, has a solid pop, and still has a lot of flex. It also has an ABS rubber protective wall around the sidewall to protect the core of the board from any impact which means its harder to hurt your core. In addition to the ABS protective side wall you have steel edges running around the whole board to help protect your board from impact damage.
When on the snow the board feels pretty good, the technology that Capita puts in this board really does make it a great park board. On the flats its pretty fun to butter around, its flexible and hard to catch an edge which is always great to have on a board. When you get to the park the board allows you to spin faster because of its light weight, making tricks like 270s on and off easier. When on rails, the shape of the board helps keep your balance on rails. Its almost like a skateboard on the rails with the way it will lock in place while holding a grind on a rail. The really nice part about this board is that even though its soft and playful for buttering and rails, its still solid on all size jumps. Features like the flat camber and the beech- poplar mix base stomping massive airs still feels solid. Although you can feel the softness of the board when you land sometimes, it is still a good board for the jumps.
One of the down sides about this board is that its not the greatest in powder and tough terrain. On every powder day Ive experienced with this board it was not quite there. Its still light enough in the powder that you can still explore the slopes. Sadly, the nose can dip under the snow pretty easily which can be a major pain while in the middle of your zone. Due to the flexibility of the board moguls and rough terrain can be hard to keep balance. Since it has blunter edges it doesnt cut through hard packed snow that well. So ripping up the non groomed runs can be harder than it has to depending on how icy the day is. This may have happened to me because Im a 511 male on a 153 board. Either way, it was not was designed mainly for that style of riding. There is no question that this board is made for hot laps through the park all day.
The graphics on this board are perfect for what kind of board it is. Capita uses screen printing and die cut so it has a great mix of detailed graphics and images that pop. Using this and putting the typical capita imagery makes this board awesome. When looking at the board it has quite a punk and dark feel to it. Most of the background colors on the board are darker colors, but the drawings have bright colors to them which bring attention to the awesome drawings. With a dragon ball Z character and a three eyed naked girl on the board just makes it even cooler.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the perfect board I would give it 9. This board is one of the better park boards I have seen and had the pleasure of riding. The shape of the board is the best feature, its what lets this board keep its stability on the jumps while still being a board good for jibbing around the park.

I rode Capita previously and just bought a new board (indoor survival, last years model). rode it for 4 hours and the metal edge separated on the tail. Contacted Capita and they said I damaged it. There are no rock gauges on the board that would indicate I did the damage. I have been snowboarding for 8 years and have never experienced this problem before. Guess I will ride My T9 that has 5 years of riding on it and is in better shape than this Capita Piece of junk.

Rode this board for a couple months this summer, and I will say I'm impressed. I rode the 147 which is admittidly small, but damn fun. It was a great park board, but I had tons of fun just cruising around Hood and hopping over whatever I could. I used to be pretty skeptical of how well Capitas held up, but even with slamming it on rocks, rails, and the like, I didn't see anything go wrong with it. Capita has definately figured something out with they're camber, too- flat from the outside of the inserts, reverse from there out. Rides and pops like a flat board, playful like a reverse, all while stil feeling stable when you need it. Pick one up if you can!

I just got one of these and upgraded from a Horrorscope that was a few years old. I like the ultrafear a lot better for everything, more stable on high speed groomers, more pop, better in powder, easier to pull out awkward landings, i feel more stable on rails too. When I am riding it, I feel like it wants me to play harder. It made me feel more confident, which is what it's all about.
