Post Capita

I'll keep it short. What's a good capita board for in the park, must be able to handle 50+ foot jumps, soft enough for rails and boxes, and can handle the occasional pow pow day. Stable at high speeds is also a must thanks guys

Why CAPiTA? Best bet is an Indoor FK.

Though if you're willing, Signal Omni, Arbor Westmark, or a Forum Destroyer Chili I think would all be better for ya.

I've just heard good things about Capita and their reliability. My previous two boards, K2s, delaminated on me (I just sent one in for warranty), so I'm looking for something built like a tank (Never Summer is out of budget). What other brands are built good?

I'm looking for the same thing. Trying to decide between the stairmaster, last years extreme, or this years indoor survival (camber). I heard the stairmaster is decent in the pow. Alot of people say the stairmaster's are fine on big jumps, while others say they aren't. I've seen Brandon Cocard (who rides for Porters) hit well over 50 ft kickers with the stairmaster so IDK.

Well CAPiTA's aren't built like tanks. They typically don't last long actually.

The Forum should do well as well as the Arbor. I can't speak too much for Signal, though my Park is lasting me quite well.

Yeah I was lookin at the extreme.
I don't really care as much about the brand, I jus want something that'll take a beating for 2 seasons...

Forums are built good?

They've been characteristically beefy lately.

Yep, Capitas definitely aren't known for being tanks. Good, fun boards that are relatively cheap, sure. Tanks, no.

If you want a tank, I'd be looking at NS and Smokin'.

I have recently learned... not smokin. Good boards and a little beefier than average, but they aren't the tanks they're made out to be.

That's disappointing to hear. I've never owned one but I've always been impressed with their build quality from just looking them over and taking a few laps on them.
