Capita DOA 2014 ----> which bindings

Got myself two boards for my trip to Austria, one of them being the 2014 DOA and now looking for a binding setup that fits a 9.5 boot size at 78kgs. I already have the Burton Genesis 2013, but it's already on another board and too lazy to keep switching.

Thinking of something that hopefully works best with this board... though I should know talent and skill should be the best bet.

Well... if I have a good setup, then I won't blame the gear! Just keep pushing myself!

Any suggestions people? It's always UNION + CAPITA isn't it?

For me on that board, Cartels, Salomon Holograms, K2 IPO, NOW, Flow Fuse SE, Flux DS, or Switchbacks.

just out of curiosity, how is the flex on this board? looking into getting one this year for park/groomer riding but worried it could be a little stiff for butterring given the camber underfoot? im 6'2, 190ish for reference and for comparison i ride a 157w k2 parkstar and 161.5 t rice pro that i find fairly easy to butter but mainly because of the profile.. soooo capita DOA, soft or stiff??

Way softer than the t rice pro for sure! I think the 2014 is a 5.5 on the flex scale for Capita if you have ridden any other of their offerings.

I'd size up a bit.

I have last years DOA ina 154 and I find it rides short.

The load bars make it ride a little wonky, mostly mid-stiff but pretty soft in the nose and tail.

OK. I suppose that comment was for me? Thanks. I bought a 156 and I'm like 78kgs.

BennyC, 156 sounds about right.

I've got atlases on mine, but I'm not sure they're such a good match.

Seems to stiffen up the board a bit too much, making the softer tips more of an issue.
