broke a board today ..

snapped the sierrascope in half ... hit a tree ... great board fantastic in fact but Capitas are just too fragile for how I abuse boards. Salty Peaks hooked me up with a Machete to try out for tomorrow ... well see

haha yep exactly just a tap too ... like as if I had gapped out to a rail. I was like " are you fucking kidding me?" OH well it was a sick board but getting mad that you bought a Capita and it broke is like getting mad that you bought a Ferrari and got a speeding ticket. Im sending the pics from my phone ill edit this ina minute and toss em up...







notice its right on the die cut of the "p" which runs the entire width of the board ... hate die cuts haha

o and sorry about the quality just took those with the phone its only a 2mp

My Stairmaster I bought last year has held up fine amidst some falls, tree hits, rocks, so forth gouging a few marks on the base like it would any other board. It's held up fine showing no signs of breaking anymore than any other brand. Dunno, maybe was just a fluke?

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

im sure it was just cumulative damage... I abuse the shit out of my boards and have hit it many times harder and things than when I hit this tree ... I was pretty sure it wouldnt stand up in the long run but ws hoping to get through the season hehe
