Oh also, not sure how much it makes a difference, but I'm looking at bindings such as the Burton Cartels or Rome Targas to pair with it.

Basically I'm looking for a board that I can grow/learn into over the next 4 years or so. Expecting it to throw me around for the first few runs.
I ride a camber board right now, but I rode lib's C2BTX (the same as what the AG has) a few weekends ago and loved it. The magnatraction works real well, and the C2 hybrid seems to give you the benefits of both camber and rocker.

I don't know anything about the Capita, but I know GNU makes good boards (I've been riding one for a few years now) and the magna will be great for the east coast ice.
