what kind of board are you looking for. I recently picked up the capita Mid life lost (wider version of the Indoor survival) and I like it quite a bit so far. Very fast, soft enough for rails but still retains quite a bit of pop for jumps and such. Rides well all over the mountain. Havent got to try it on powder yet as I live in the east. I brought this board up cuz u can get it for about %50 off right now and there seems to be quite a few of them left.

well im looking for an all around fun board, i need a wide for starters, something poppy, good flex but not so much the its gonna chatter like crazy but enough for a decent press, would like it to be able to handle powder on the rare occasion that we have some. i hit medium sized jumps and boxes, and i want a board that will progress as i do....to much to ask for? lol


oh and something around 160-164

The B D I sound like a good fit for what you are looking for. Is a little on the soft side for the all mountain boards but still can run it everywhere. Only time I had issues with on mine was on cord ice. But was not really noticeable unless you where looking for it. The edge bevel on it is about a 2 degree bevel so you loose a little there but is not to bad.

Not 100 percent sure on the edge bevel will be sharpening my edges this week end. But they are not one degree bevels.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

It is a lot more flexible then previous years. The previous years had almost no flex to it.

Best board I've ridden all year

I rode the 159 wide in East coast powder and all over Jackson Hole. This board is the shit!

I'm 6'1" and 208lbs. size 9 boot. I normally do not ride wide boards but this was awesome. So NOT slow edge to edge, but hella buoyant in zee pow.

Also try the normal width.
CAPITA 09 Black Death Inc. 159cm Snowboard
Our price: $458.95
