i was the designer for the apocalypse CAP series. the board would be a custom for what looks like burton plate bindings.

I worked for Apocalypse for many years as a sales rep and rider. The black and blue board was a Apocalypse Cap board. It was made after Regis was gone. It was designed by David Partridge. The reason why they say regular and goofy is because they have an asymmetrical core. If you look at the core profile you will see, it was shifted under your foot so the thicker part of the core was under you binding heel and toe. The binding pattern is the old wide 5. You would have to find some old bindings for it. Back in the day it was the standard pattern. Regis left the company and went back to Europe and started A snowboards, Jack Lin was the owner of Apocalypse snowboards over here. That second board with the cross is a fuse model, I would need to see the base and the tail. That was when the company was almost over and around when I quit. Let me know what you want for the cap, it would be more of a sentimental thing for me.

|dantech||Cool! When I got my board it had that same stomp pad as yours. First thing I did was scrap it off...kinda wish I hadn't now. I'll snap some better pics of mine tonight.|

Here's mine. I learned on this board, and it did a fabulous job of kicking my ass in the process. Still love it though...

I've always been a bit confused about the "Regular" inscription on it, which is why I tried to research for info a couple years ago. I ride goofy and wondered if it was designed for a regular stance. I was young when I got it and didn't care back then. I still don't really care now, just curious haha.

This board is 1994 or newer for sure.
Apo still exists, and has been said, is more popular in Europe. APO SNOW

Here it is. It has a blue and yellow base with star type things.

BA probably has more on this than I do, but iirc, the brand arrived in the US in the 90's (according to that link, '92-'97). They were (and still seem to be, as APO) popular in Europe(?). Rossignol bought the brand sometime in the '90s, then wanted to eliminate the line, Rolland tried to buy back the brand but was shut down.
The Apocalypse I have is either a '93/94 or '94/95. dantech, what does your wife's look like?

P.S. Youre not gonna find anything that will fit those. I have heard of some people making there own adapter plates to ride vintage boards with modern bindings. Probably not worth the effort.
