Stability, response and control that’s well suited for most types of riding
It's hard to imagine the world of snowboarding without the DOA. This board has won so many awards over the years and remains one of our top selling boards every season. With a board that has such an outstanding reputation, you might wonder how it could ever be improved upon. Well the designers at CAPiTA keep raising the bar, adding a slew of new terrain wrecking tech. To compliment the DOA's poppy, lightweight core a new Superdrive™ base is used that defends against scrapes and dings and sets you up for a smooth ride. Take this sick stick anywhere on the mountain because the camber dominant profile will give you all the pop and control you need for big landings and fast runs while any experienced rider can tell you this board's flat nose and tail could let you butter down the whole mountain. This year, become one of the Defenders of Awesome.

Key Features

Hybrid Camber Profile - CAPiTA's Hybrid Camber Profile boards take full advantage of the benefits of traditional camber, zero camber, and reverse camber. This next generation design allows you to get the pop and response of a cambered board with all the predictability and easy turn initiation of zero camber or reverse camber shapes.

Blended Radial Sidecut - Blended radial sidecuts feature a single radius arc through the midsection of the board combined with a custom designed blend zone at the contact points. Varying the length of these blend zones and tailoring them specifically for certain aspects of riding greatly improves a board's performance.


FSC® Certified Dual Core™ - Poppy lightweight Poplar core combined with Beech for increased power and durability.

DOA Profile

Special Blend Fiberglass - The Special Blend Fiberglass configuration is an optimum blend of triaxial and biaxial glass weaves. The triax is placed on the topside maximizing torsional rigidity. The biaxial glass is situated underneath the core along with carbon enhancements to provide great longitudinal flex.

Titanal Base Inlay - Titanal is a high strength, hardened aluminum wrought alloy with excellent compression strength-to-weight ratios, making it a perfect top core structural reinforcement. These 20 millimeter Titanal Struts resist longitudinal compression contributing more power to these popular, easy to ride models.

Fortress™ Kevlar Bound Sidewalls + 2x30mm Carbon Fiber Beams - Fortress™ heavy duty protection with refined flyweight Kevlar with carbon fiber beams to increase power and response. Combine this tech with a poppy and lightweight Poplar core with Beech and you get even more power and durability.


Superdrive™ Base - The new standard in sintered base material, this UHMWPE is precision forged for high abrasion resistance and a super smooth glide.

The Hype

Transworld Good Wood Award Winner - Selected as a Good Wood winner by Transworld Magazine - chosen for quality snowboard construction and rideability.


360° Steel Edges - CAPiTA uses a full wrap steel edge that goes all the way around the board to add bomber protection to the tips and tails from impact damage.

Full ABS Sidewalls - ABS is an opaque thermoplastic polymer that is strong and durable even at low temperatures, making it ideal for snowboarding. It makes your board more stable at speeds and is impact resistant on rails and boxes.

PLT Topsheet Technology - PLT Topsheet Technology adheres to the board without using toxic and heavy lacquer to maintain vibrant and rich graphics on the board.

2 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 2 years from the time of purchase. Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear expected from aggressive riding.

Sorry folks, but bashing your board on a rock or rail does not qualify as a "manufacturer's defect" and will not be honored.

Magic Bean™ Resin - This resin system is poppy, powerful, and extremely durable. Magic Bean™ resin yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing CAPiTA to decrease the wood core thickness. With a focus on saving wood core weight by increasing resin performance you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return.

Most Awesome board ever

Took this board up after not riding for a few years and just felt comfortable like I never left the mountain. You can haul ass, carve, jump, hit rails with this board! It will lay flat and not catch when you want to just relax on a groomer, but the second you want to carve at speed and turn the thing will hold and rail through. You can hit the whole mountain with this board and the hybrid camber/flat is the best of both worlds.

This deck does it all. It has a hybrid camber with a ton of pop. It can handle a powder day while also being able to cater to your needs in the terrain park.

Good, fun board in the park or dwn mountain. Has a lot of pop with some solid edges. Durable. The graphics are dope along with the shape of the tail ends.

Great Board

I've only been able to take this board out once since ordering it, but when I did I took it through all kinds of stuff. The camber between the inserts provides for a ton of pop and makes transitioning during carving effortless. The rocker profile also adds that stability and forgiveness you're looking for when riding flat at high speeds.

Hit the park multiple times - plenty of pop off jumps and hitting rails is a breeze.

This board shreds, and you will too with it! (not to mention the awesome graphics and unique shape!)
