The most iconic snowboard in their range, the Capita Defenders Of Awesome (AKA: DOA) is an aggressive hybrid camber board ideally suited for intermediate to advanced riders. The traditional camber feel makes it super stable at speed, bulldozing through choppy terrain - it also initiates a fantastic pop for ollies and kickers.
On the flip side, even though the DOA has a hybrid camber, it still suffers from the traditional traits of being slightly unforgiving and makes it easier to catch an edge than some of the other hybrid boards with a more rockered profile. This also means that we had to work the back leg a little harder in powder to keep the float, but having said that, the DOA does perform better in the deep stuff than a traditional camber board.
The DOA is for those big mountain chargers who will bring the best out of the board. It has great turn initiation and a pure dream for aggressive carving. The DOA is twin tipped with a central stance, therefore excellent for long durations when riding switch. The new 'Fortress' Kevlar bound sidewalls gives the board heavy duty protection and kick-ass abilities for slaying those pesky cookie fields.
The board graphics are different for each size and it is fair to say we think they are awesome!
