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!

Hi! I want to buy one, but i'm pretty confused which size to choose. I'm about 6 ft, 175 lb and wearing size 11 boot. I'd prefer park riding and shorter boards, but i've just bought nike's zf1 and comparing them to my previous 32s nike is like about 1 in. bigger (earlier i didn't need to have wide boards). So can 156 handle zf1 size 11? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: Hi, I'm 55kg and 174cm, should I chose 150 or 152 thank u !
What is the flex on this board?
Nick I on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Just got the board in. I'd say the 5.5 is pretty accurate. It is slightly softer than my previous all mountain board(K2 Believer) which is exactly what I was looking for.Enter an answer to this question.
I'm a 20 year vet. Been on the east coast my whole life. I take trips out west once or twice a year if I'm lucky. I Love big air and try to jump EVERYTHING! Park laps all day! I'm looking at the DOA and the Skate Banana. Which board would you suggest?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey buddy,
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!
Hey! I'm an aggressive female rider that had this board suggested to me because I like to rip down groomers and pop rollers. Should I get women's or men's bindings? Would riding women's bindings on a men's board sacrifice control? Any suggestions?
highonsnow on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would stick with women's bindings. It will not sacrifice board control. This board rides a little loose for me since I'm used to camber so you may want to pair it with a medium to stiffer binding.
Hey, I was jut wondering what the pros and cons of a hybrid camber are?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Capita's Hybrid FK profile is pretty spot on. Positive Camber is laid underneath and in between the feet for awesome pop and quick edge to edge response, with Zero Camber (Flat Zones) on the nose and tail for great pressing platforms, and the contact points have Reverse Camber to keep with from catching.

Overall this profile on the Capita DOA only has PROS.
Do you know when they will be making a wide SOA? The big foots are missing out! Haha
Trent L on Sep 7, 2014

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!
hey i want to buy the capita DOA 2015 but everywhere i look the board is sold out, when will i be able to buy a board?
zac l on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 2016 Capita Defenders Of Awesome Snowboard come in somewhere around September 2015.
I'm 5'8 155lbs size 9 boot. I live in Northern Jersey so most of the NJ/NY mountains near me tend to have groom packed snow. I prefer bombing down the mountain, but I'll do some park riding here and there. Do you think a 156cm is a cool size or should I go smaller?
Mitchell B on Mar 9, 2015

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.

Good choice.
I ride an xl binding. Will I have bad over hang on the 156?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2015
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:
Is DOA board sold out? I want it!!!!
hyun l on Jan 27, 2015
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.
are you guys going to have this board back in stock?
Kuba P on Dec 10, 2014
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: To find an existing DOA 2015, I would ask Capita themselves.
A little stuck between the DOA or The Outsiders, looking for something that will handle big jumps no problem but still willing to rip on a rail. What do you think would work better? Thanks
A shopper on Nov 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: That's a tough one. They are VERY similar boards but the Outsiders will be a little more stable because of the 2 carbon fiber beams.

Over all you can't go wrong with either board, but I'd choose the Outsiders because I like my boards really poppy!
If I'm an intermediate skilled rider and being this is a Freestyle board (mountain &/or park), what would be the appropriate length(cm) for a 5'10/11" 145lbs rider? Thanks!
Tavrin F on Nov 21, 2014
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)
monguy on Nov 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we do not ship Capita items internationally. Please check out our international shipping page at for more information.
I have a size 12 boot, i got fat feet. Think the 25-25.2 width will be fine for me? I hate to buy a wide board and I hate to size up just for width.
A shopper on Sep 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Understood...

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: or 866-243-6932.
