Why It's Awesome: This tapered tail powder machine is engineered to surf the white waves at a price you can afford. Designed with freestyle-inspired tip and tail shapes, these boards are rockered from the insert pack forward for easy flotation above the snowline. A mistake some companies make is engineering powder boards to have full rocker in the tail area, which requires more energy to keep your body weight properly distributed over your board and reduces stability for stomping pow landings. The Pow FK has a flat base from the midsection through the tail that allows you to conserve your energy, and transform the incredibly tiring powder days into incredible, epic, pow days.
Why It's Awesome: Park, pipe, jibs, jumps, or just hauling ass on groomed runs, the Stairmaster Extreme is one of the most versatile traditional camber freestyle boards on the market. As a Transworld SNOWboarding's Top Ten Good Wood award winner, this board will do it all. It's geared toward a progressive park shredder that doesn't want to break the bank, but is looking for more performance than the standard Stairmaster. It features an epoxy glass configuration, sintered base, and new lowered cambered construction so it's fast, strong, and has mad-pop off park jumps. Combine that with a specially designed dampening system placed along the edge between the inserts, and these boards yield enhanced impact resistance as well.
Why It's Awesome: The Mid Life Zero series provides a true twin freestyle experience with an overall wider frame, slightly deeper sidecut, more pronounced shoulders, and distinctive tip and tail shapes. Benefitting from our zero camber approach, these boards are easy to press on rails and boxes. This feature also smoothes turn initiation at the contact points, yet retains stability by engaging the entire effective edge.
Why It's Awesome: Simply put, it's Jess Kimura's board of choice -- and she knows what she's talking about when it comes to snowboarding. As the winner of Transworld SNOWboarding's 2011 Women's Video Part of the Year alongside nominations for Women's Rider of the Year and Rookie of the Year, Jess isn't just a good snowboarder... she's taking snowboarding by storm. Modeled after the Horrorscope FK, the reverse camber Flat Kick application of the SMF obviously yields some awesome results. Elevated contact points provide a very forgiving, fun experience for intermediate riders looking to expedite the learning curve, and pre-loaded reverse camber positioning helps expert level jibbers looking to impress.
Why It's Awesome: This one board is all you need to attack any situation. The Black Snowboard of Death integrates camber where you need it for power and stability through variable terrain with reverse camber where you want it for control in powder conditions. The BSOD also features Death Grip™ -- a unique reverse sidecut blend in the midsection of the board to complement this hybrid camber design. This combination retains high-speed control in any situation and continues to build upon the Black Death legacy, epitomizing all terrain freestyle design.
Why It's Awesome: The Saturnia has been engineered to be light, strong, and predictable. This Transworld SNOWboarding Good Wood award winning board is the natural choice for Laura Hadar. It has everything you need, nothing you don't, and like the Stairmaster series, the exceptional ride-ability and on-snow experience of the Saturnia greatly exceeds the price tag. With new lowered camber, the Saturnia is even easier to ride and eager to go anywhere you desire.
Why It's Awesome: This freestyle machine was designed as a women's parallel to the new Defenders of Awesome series. This next generation design allows you to get the power of traditional cambered boards with the predictability and ease obtained from zero or reverse camber boards. Whether in the park or the powder, these birds will allow you to fly higher and soar with style.
Why It's Awesome: With so many different camber theories in the market today, it can get confusing trying to find the right one. We have talked to many riders around the world who, rightfully so, just want what they know and love. They want the shape they learned to ride on and eventually learned to rip on. A board that's powerful, stable, predictable, and flat-out charges. We launched the Normal Ass Snowboard last year, and so many people were feeling the stripped-down graphics and traditional design package that we are back for 2012 with seven sizes including three wide models. Comfortable and stable out of the box while still quick edge-to-edge, these boards can handle anything the mountain can dish out. And, with a price tag hundreds of dollars less than its Good Wood peers, these boards are undeniably the best high performance product for the price, industry-wide.

Why It's Awesome: Do you like certain attributes of both traditional and reverse camber boards and are having a hard time deciding which one to pick? We've heard that quite a bit over the last year and considering the overwhelming success of our Mid Life Zero, we have zeroed out the camber on another one of our classic shapes for 2012. The Outdoor Living's zero camber offers the stable feel of a traditional running length while feeling slightly looser and easier to ride. Without going full rocker, they feel poppy, fun and catch-free while cruising around the park. These durable, responsive freestyle boards have a classic, true-twin shape that can match everything you've got, at a price you can afford.
Why It's Awesome: As one of our team riders' favorite boards, the Indoor Survival FK is the go-to board inside and outside of the park.

Featuring our Freestyle FK camber, these Transworld SNOWboarding Good Wood award winners are one of the best-selling and most successful lines in CAPiTA history.
Why It's Awesome: As a cult favorite among the CAPiTA team, the Transworld SNOWboarding Good Wood winning Stairmaster rips like no other board near the price.

The WDT Jib Core will allow you to pop in and out of any feature imaginable while going bigger and faster than all your friends — one of the reasons why the overwhelming demand for the Stairmaster grows every year.
