With a soulful trip to the early days of snowboarding, CAPiTA and Spring Break present a line of hand-crafted surfboards for the snow. Conceptualized by Corey Smith and designed by CAPiTA, these beauties embody the heart of Corey’s garage built, oversized, plywood decks – but have been created using the technology available in the best factory in the world. A thicker, more buoyant, ultra-lightweight Surflite™ Core combined with a Surf Rocker camber profile and wide shouldered shapes all work together to create zero-gravity float on top of the deepest pow. Packed with new technology like refined Forged Carbon Quad Packs, Holysheet™ fiberglass, and an Ultradrive™ sintered base material, we have managed to minimize weight and maximize performance in these oversize frames. For 2017, five uniquely designed shapes are available including a new Tree Hunter Mini 151, an adapted version of the classic Powder Pill 158, and the much anticipated Catamaran 166. Combined with the top selling Tree Hunter 161 and everyone’s dream quiver board the Night Hawk Swallow Tail 167, the new collection will take you one step closer in the search for the perfect wave.

Whether you are buying your first board or your tenth board researching the latest snowboard technology is a constant requirement as new ideas are developed improving the ride and changing the way we snowboard.
There are a few important questions you need to ask yourself when setting out to make a big purchase like a snowboard. Whilst these aren't the only factors, they're a good start to help you choose the right board for your next snow trip.
Snowboard size is no exact science, it's about how comfortable you are on your board. When renting snowboards technicians will look for something to fit in-between your chin and your nose. A shorter board will be easier to manoeuvre however might not give you the speed or power looking for.
Camber is the bend or pre-flex a snowboard is built with.
Traditionally snowboards were manufactured with positive camber, this means the board core materials have an arc and the middle of the board is raised from the ground but the tip and tail are touching the ground.
This profile means that the board is loaded with extra pop and makes a precise turn. This is a sought after shape for those looking for speed and carving, however, might not be as forgiving when learning to ride as edges tend to catch a little more.
Flat Camber or Zero Camberbridges the gap between positive and reverse camber. The shape still provides the ease of manoeuvrability like a rocker board but you have the bonus edge control.
Used regularly by park riders as the flat surface on rails can be forgiving. Flat camber is not for everyone, people who have traditionally ridden camber boards may fee that the board has a damp feeling under foot
Those who ride a Zero Camber board tend to swear by them so if you are in the market for something middle ground be sure to test a Zero camber snowboard at a demo day to understand the feel.
Reverse / Rocker Camber profiles
Rocker cambers tend to provide a looser, surfy feel. Reverse cambers are a great option for people looking to learn as they aim to raise contact points off the ground which makes catching an edge less likely.
Reverse camber boards are already pre flexed ready to turn which is more enjoyable for some skiers and snowboarders. Reverse camber is also heavily featured in powder boards to help the board float and
