Capita Black Snowboard of Death advice!

sorry for another 'which size shoudl i get' thread but i really want to hear you guys opinion on this, esp. those who have ridden the 2011 BSOD w/freeride FK.

im 5'9", 165lbs, size 10 boot

very interested in the 2011 capita BSOD for my charging board...looking to use this for speed and charging down runs, some pow and jumps as well. not really interested in using this in the park at all or doing jibs/butters and stuff as it isnt even that kind of board in the first place.

my question is, do i get the 156, or the 159?

i traditionally would ride somewhere in the 156-158 range, so the 156 falls in this range. but i dont want this board to be too loose/playful and i want that stability for charging runs. but at the same time, 159 is longer than im used to and i dont want the length to get in the way of maneuverability. im thinking on the 159 tho, the rocker in the tip and tail will allow for good maneuverability.

can anyone chime in on their thoughts here? if you were me, would you go 156, or 159?

thanks!

another question...does capita's "waist width" measurement take into consideration the "death grip" contact point that sticks out at the middle of the board? i ask cuz if this is the case, then in practical terms, the waist is probably a bit smaller than advertised.

We're roughly the same weight, and I would chose a 59 for a fast board. The 56 will still suit your weight range, but you'll get so much more stability out of the 59 and the that the extra 30mm will not be noticable.

Capita BSOD 2013

GO 159 FOR FREERIDE ... IM 5,9 HEIGHT + 165 pounds ( 74 kg ) and i rode 162 it was fun for freeride ... no problema with this board for quick carve .. BKS of the flat kick .. so 159 is the right choice ! 156 is more for you freestyle all terrain ... and the 159 will be you all mountain powder ! but if you are thinking ride Japan powder think 162 \ PLUS.. DO YOU GET IT ?

159 definitely. It wasnt the most stable board at speed, the extra length will help. With 10's you dont need to worry about waist widths for 155's and up (in general).

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

Yes. for your size if you want a more powder friendly ride go 162.

I just about match your size/weight, and ride mostly 160+ decks.

The BSOD is fairly light and responsive, 162 is deff not too much.
