Anyone riding a capita NAS

Looking for some reviews on the capita nas. I ride a lot of groomers but try to get out to some pow as much as possible so I want something geared towards groomers but can do a little of everything including some park and tricks, groomers and pow without giving me any trouble, and of course without breaking the bank

Re: Anyone riding a capita NAS

The NAS in the name stands for "Normal Ass Snowboard". It's a well built, full traditional camber board. I rode the 2013 this last spring at Stevens Pass. It's a very predictable ride, which I thought was nice. It's a great board for just hopping on and going. It has nice snap, which is to be expected since it's traditional camber. I don't know what else I can say about it. If you like a middle of the road, traditional camber board, then you'll likely enjoy the NAS.

Yea that's what I keep reading so I'm kinda worried bout it cause I know it wont be as "fun" as a hybrid but I was looking at hybrids like the Burton Sherlock but I heard a lot of bad things about hybrids on ice which is where I spend most of my time. So I figured a traditional camber would be great so I can rip on any conditions and not spend most of my time on my ass losing an edge on ice. I just wanna make sure what I've read is right cause I'm not up on all the tech stuff

I love hybrid camber. I have ridden both c-r-c, and r-c-r. They are both a lot of fun. If you can demo a hybrid I would highly suggest it. The edge hold on a hybrid can be suspect sometimes, but if you know how to ride, you should be fine. Also, just about every company that makes a hybrid puts some kind of edge tech on it to help with the hold. The NAS is a good board if you fear change and just want to stick with what's comfortable and familiar.

I would recommend the Defenders of Awesome. Cambered with flat/lifted contact points. Basically best of both worlds, I love mine, super fun board.

The TFA is probably going to be to stiff for park.

If you wait til next year Capita's Outsiders board is similar shape to the DOA but is cambered to flat with no rocker at the tips.

But the DOA sounds like the board you are looking for. A little easier in the powder than the NAS but still tons of pop since it is still cambered.

I ride a Capita NAS. It's a very solid ride holds an edge like a champ even on the east coast ice. Snappy board, quick edge to edge for how wide it is, I'd like to see it made a little narrower (I think the 2013 is a little narrower than the 2012 or the 2011 Quiver Killer), but I've got a size 9 foot so I might be a little bias there. It does leave a little to be desired holding a tight line in the trees for example, I think the stiffness holds it back a bit here. This board is best for just hauling ass around the mountain, awesome for blasting down groomed runs, ok in the deeper snow, a little too stiff for some other types of riding. You can pretty much just point this thing and go nice damp ride little to no chatter at high speeds and cruddy snow.
