you looking at reg or reverse/alt camber? the 2011 kinks have rides smallest low rise on it its pretty much flat with small rise at tip and tail .. which is actually also like capitas fk tech.

I had the sierrascope this year which is like the indoor survival and I really enjoyed it although I did snap one on a tree but got a free replacement.

I also had a kink before the alt camber craze hit and really really liked it alot ... one of my most favorite boards of all time...

both are great boards but if I were someone on a budget or looking for a long term investment Id go with the ride just because capitas can sometimes have durability issues

im going for last seasons models, The capita is suppose to have more pop but less durable. I was already decided on the kink but wanted to be reassured thats the good choice, thanks

I've ridden both the 80/09 Kink and Scaremaster and I still have the Kink. They ride really similar. The reason I still have the Kink is because of slimewalls. They provide just a little bit more dampening and tend to sorta "smooth" out rail hits a little.

Either way both great boards.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

so my plans have changed, I just realised i had more money so, Ride DH vs Capita Stairmaster Extreme vs Ride DH2? The only problem is they dont make the Ride DH2 152-3cm WIDE therefore im leaning towards Stairmaster/DH.
