There are a few out there. I'm like the burton process I picked up for park, and its true twin camber with a soft flex.

snowgirl14 Yea I think I might go for CamRock, seeing as there's hardly such thing as a Camber true twin board anymore.

Mizu Kuma You can always go for somethin with a CamRock Profile, so you have Camber for bombin the groomers, and a bit of Rocker in the Nose/Tail for Buttery Stuff!!!!!

Shame about the Claim!!!!!

snowgirl14 Stiffer board? Ugh, okay, I was hoping to get better at buttering lol.
I mainly do kickers and boxes.

Mizu Kuma Sounds like you were just unlucky!!!!!

A stiffer board will be harder to snap, as they are more likely to have carbon fibre inserts, etc!!!!!

Profile is really a matter of preference in the park (dependant on what features you're hittin), but generally camber is good for bombin hills/groomers!!!!!

Maybe shoot Capita an email and see if they'll help ya out in anyway?????

snowgirl14 It was brand new.
I thought traditional camber was best for park because of the pop - that's what i've been looking for anyway, and I like to bomb it down the mountain too.
Or do you recommend another one?

Smaller boards are better for tricks and stuff, I'm apparently recommended for a 144cm, so if I get a smaller one will it break?

Kevin137 Maybe buy a park specific board...???

How old was the board? I know you said you only rode it like 5 times, but you don't state how much before you if 2nd hand...

That may be a good board for you, Marcus hammers his boards, i mean really throws them through the ringer, and they don't break...

Snapped board, advice for new one?

Hi, so I managed to snap my Capita board in the park, on the nose end next to the binding, I'd only used it about 5 times, and I'm wondering if the next board I should buy needs to be softer?
Or what I need to buy to prevent it?
My board was a 4/10 and 143cm.

Any advice?
Thanks
