Board: Capita Asymulator
Camber Option: Resort V1 Profile. Traditional camber past the insert pack, flat, and then a small rocker zone right before the upkick in the tips.
Bindings: K2 Indy
Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy
Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10
My Weight: 195lbs
Resort: Copper Mountain
Conditions: Sunny blue skies, warmer spring temps, chunder snow, mounds of chunder snow, and mashed potato snow.
Flex: The overall flex of this board comes in at a middle of the road. What you get is a softer sweet spot way out in the tips where the flat section meets the rocker, then it stiffens up through the insert packs, and gets softer between the feet. There’s a fair amount of torsional flex which makes this board playful.
Stability: This board is moderately stable. In really rutted out terrain you can feel the board bending and flexing with every contour. There’s some chatter out in the tips that does resonate back under foot.
Ollies: This board has some solid snap. The camber profile is easy to load up and when the center zone is activated it turns the flat and rocker zones into a spring so the board gets insane pop. This board is meant for boosting.
Pop On Jumps: Don’t sweat it, just send it. This board will pop off any lip with ease.
Butterability: You do need to get your weight outside the camber zone to activate this boards sweet spot. It will lock in nicely but there’s a little bit of rebound and fight to it. Be prepared to work just a little bit.
Jibbing: This board is at home on jibs. It locks into nose and tail presses with ease. Getting sideways the camber section hugs a rail perfectly.
Carving: The asym sidecut is so dialed. You’ll notice right away that the heel edge grips and lets you aggressively rip a carve. Short quick turns or long drawn out ones this board never falters. It’s a deck designed for laying trenches when you want to or being a bit more mellow if you have to be.
Rider in Mind: All mountain freestyle guy that wants an asymmetrical deck.
Personal Thoughts: It’s the Spring Break Twin with a different shape. That’s it. I loved that board and I love this board. Don’t sleep on this deck if you want something that is freestyle focused and can handle the whole mountain. It says something when I stay riding for an extra 2 hours because the board is just that much fun and I didn’t want to get off it.
