Capita Stairmaster

Hey, does anyone have any experience with this board?

I'm looking at a 156W.

90% of the time I ride all mountain, a few trips to the park every now and then.

What do people think of this board?

I'm 5'11", 175-180 lbs

I'm also looking at a Burton (The White Collection) Standard...

Neither? The stair will be too soft for 10% park. From CAPiTA look at the Quiver Killer and BSOD. The TWC is a pretty basic board. I think better can be had for the money. Drop the extra $100 and get the Flow Infinite I-Rock. Or get a last years something.

I ride the 156 Scaremaster which is an exact replica of the stairmaster and its softer than an all mtn board but not so soft that it can't ride all mtn. But obviously you should buy a board more suited to your style of riding.

Well, I usually ride all mountain so I'm basically looking for a board I can ride all day long. The guy at my local shop also suggested a K2 darkstar...

I found the darkstar a little too soft for all mtn...but I'm also about 190lbs. If you're on the lower end of the weight spectrum it would probably be a pretty good board esp if you want to venture into the park now and then.

Is there a board that you'd recommend based on my specs and riding style?

I need something in a wide board. Should I consider a twin, cambered board.... Anything like that... ?

I found my old board I'd catch edges alot...

I used to ride a Soloman surface, it didn't do me any good..

I appreciate the help, I just want a good set up this year. All the local shops seem to just wantto sell me the most expensive board

Nitro Misfit, Nitro Team, Capita BSOD, Ride Antic, Ride Society, there are quite a few really. My Current all mtn board is the Nitro Misfit and it's super aggressive.

are you interested in the stairmaster because it's cheap?

Because I bought it for that exact reason. The board is great if you are riding park, a few jumps but mostly rails. If you are doing 90 percent all mountain I would highly suggest no. I love my stairmaster for what its designed for but I say a big no for what your doing.

I chase powder for a living. As long as I can get that tingly sensation and some white stuff in my face every day, I will be perfectly content with life.

Capita Indoor Survival FK, carbon-x stringers in the middle make for a stiffer core, the ends are flexible for those butters. Excellent board for the best of both worlds.

I'd seriously look into this one if I were you because it suits what you seem to look for in all mountain but will perform super in the park.
