No review here. I've seen some things that make me question Capita durability, but I want that board! I've already bought a board this year though, so unless there's some left overs post-season, I won't be getting one.

i own a stairmaster and it has been nothing but durable for me, the boards are made @ the factory in Elan, which is prob one of the best factorys for making stuff.

Too Fast!

I got nothing but good things to say about my Horrorscope.... It's a soft, fun board, that can go all over the mountain.

If you have questions about how this board handles in certain situations, ask.

Is it any good in the pow? I assume so because of the rocker but the fact that it's soft makes me hesitant (don't want th tail an nose to fold too much

I took the 151 horrorscope fk out on mon and tues at Stratton and Killington respectively. Planned on staying just in the park but ended up riding in the trees and on blacks also. I'm 5'10" 175 so this is a little short for me for all mt but perfect for park. This board felt really really smooth and stable in the park with fs slides and 50's and it can get real pressy. I can say beyond any doubt it is my favorite park board. It's also stiff enough to blast around on and i never had any problems with chatter or wash out coming down the steepest stuff. It held me up well when landing a little bit in the back seat but it's still pretty flexy so I would reccomend the 55 if you're into big air. The 55 will def handle any jump. It's a light board, mid-wide waist, fast base even though it's extruded, even flex, and has good pop. I carved the hell out of this board too. Between the flat base and razor sharp edges I could stand this right up on edge and rail into turns like mad.

It seems pretty durable. I ducked a couple of lines and got hung out in no man's land where there was more rocks than snow. I had to jump over a bunch of culverts to get out and twice landed on some pretty nasty looking rocks. It was loud. I thought I put a core shot or two in it but there was only a few little scrapes. One thing I've never seen before though is the base has dimples in it from the where the bolts were screwed into the inserts. It probably has no affect on how it rides but that is something Capita should take care of.

Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
