Description: Capita Defenders Of Awesome Snowboard

The Defenders of Awesome series has a big reputation and these boards back it up. And when we say they back it up, we mean they back to back to back it up — and then they back it up again. As winners of the most coveted design award in snowboarding four years in a row, this highly sought after series now has won a Transworld Good Wood Award every single year of its existence. Let's talk about being undefeated. It's one of the best in the game and has the accolades to prove it. The DOA features a next-generation hybrid camber design, 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.

Hello, I cant decide which size of this board would be the best for me, im 6 feet tall and weigh about 180, boot size 10, i previously had a smaller board a 154cm which was not so stable but really playful, i ride a litle bit of eveything but mainly all mountain freestyle so i want a fun but stable board, i was thinking about a 156cm. would that size be ok or should i go with the 158cm?
Dominik S on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the same height and weight so I will try to help you from my experience. I used to own a 156 it was a really fun ride easy to spin and butter around but it would lose out a bit of stability when bombing real hard . You could go for the 158 if you want to do powder or charge the slope harder than before but 156 for freestyle should be great for you. And also the 158 is still fun just spin around less fast. Hope it help you the DOA is an awesome stick for all mountain have fun everywhere riding.
Hello, I we able to choose which base we get on purchase? I'm 5'6 and roughly 185lbs, what size board is recommended? Thanks!
Patrick C on Jul 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Patrick,

the graphics depend on which size you choose. I would suggest the 154 or 156
Yo! I'm 5'10 and I weigh 155 lbs. Would you recommend a 156 for me? I am primarily looking to shred down groomers but I want the option of jibbing as well.
Cody S on Oct 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Im exactly your height and weight. I would go a bit shorter (154cm) for more fun factor while still keeping shredability on the slopes
looking to get the doa but cant decide on what size? im 5'6/5'7 and weigh about 140lbs boot size 9.5. i do the occasional park run and want to get better. i also like to bomb the steep hills as fast as possible. let me know

Taylor's answer is good. It depends a little on your skill and style, but Capita suggests that you would be best with the 152cm version of the DOA.
Will you get more of the DOA in? Looking to get the 154

As of today the next shipment of these DOA boards will arrive 2/17/17 (That can change however).
Hi I'm 5"10 180lbs and have a size 11 boot. I was riding a lib tech 156 wide board because I was wearing size 12 boots. I'm squeezing into size 11s hoping my board options become increased as I want to ride a 154 DOA but will my boots fit on riding at 15:15?
Leigh S on Jan 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Don't go through the pain of squeezing into a full size smaller boot - I did it for a few season and it was the worst ever - broken toes, broken toe nails, etc... Save yourself the comfort and ride a size 11 boot.

Ride a board with a waist width of 25.5cm and an 11 boot with shrinkage footprint reduction tech and you'll be good to go.
I'm looking at the doa but not sure the size to get. I'm 5 foot 11 210lbs and size 11 boot?
A shopper on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: With a size 11 boot and weighing 210 lbs, the best DOA option would be the 160cm - mostly because the 25.7cm waist width will accommodate your boot size.
Im 6 feet tall and weight 160Ibs, I want to ride the 152, but I dont know what size to choose?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2016

you could definitely ride the 152 with those specs!
