Description: Capita Defenders Of Awesome Snowboard
With back-to-back Transworld Good Wood Awards, a Snowboarder Mag Best-Of-Test Award, and other accolades in multiple publications, this highly acclaimed series had proven itself to be one of the best in the game. The SOA features a next-generation design with Hybrid FK, which delivers the pop and response of a camber board with the predictability of reverse camber. This truly is the go anywhere, do anything freestyle deck. For 2014, we added a 148cm size - so even more people can join the mayhem!

Defenders of Awesome
Im a 20 yr vet myself! So Ive owned both the DOA and the Skate Banana, and I currently ride last years model of the DOA. From my experience, I'd suggest the DOA. I love the feel, really poppy, perfect flex so its really forgiving on big ass jumps and spins, great edges, and holds its own on rails and jibbing. I absolutely love this board, and the graphics are too sick. From my experience with the skate banana, charging big jumps and spins was hard. The magnetraction on the edges made the board a little sketchy at high speeds, kinda easy to catch edges…and trying to get an edge off the lip for spinning was kinda tough. I made the switch from the Skate Banana to the DOA, and I couldn't be happier. All around dope park board and it stays in great shape, I beat mine to death this past year haha. Definitely buying capita for my next board. Anyways, I don't want to sway you haha, but I hope this helps, good luck and enjoy the shred!
Overall this profile on the Capita DOA only has PROS.
Right?! The 160cm Capita Defenders of Awesome has a 25.7cm waist width, which is pretty wide, but it'd be nice if they made a shorter DOAs with wider widths!
I actually rode Mt. Creek, NJ in 2006 when the USSA announced the 2006 US Olympic Snowboard Team!
The 155cm Capita Defenders of Awesome (DOA) will be a perfect board for you. It's stable, has tons of pop for high ollies in the park, and of course has a really rad graphic.
Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider. With XL bindings you would have quite a bit of over hang.... look at wide boards: http://www.the-house.com/snbd-wide-snowboards.html
I am quite sorry, but this DOA board was SUPER popular and we have sold the last. If I trip onto one that was returned or in the store I will notify you.
We just sold the last of these DOA's... and as Capita's snowboards have been exceedingly popular, it is unlikely we will be able to receive any more. Here are our remaining Capita Boards: http://www.the-house.com/snbd-capitaall.html To find an existing DOA 2015, I would ask Capita themselves.
Over all you can't go wrong with either board, but I'd choose the Outsiders because I like my boards really poppy!
Hey. Looking at the Capita Defenders of Awesome Snowboard, I would suggest that the 152 would be your best option.
Can you international shipping? (South Korea)
But having your toes drag would be worse. Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider UNLESS the boots have Shrinkage Reduction Technology. If you want to check for a regular board that might work with your boots, or more specific help, talk to our customer service people at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-243-6932.
