CAPITA HORRORSCOPE FK – SNOWBOARD BUYERS’ GUIDE REVIEW
We’re not totally sure why Capita are billing this as the snowboard equivalent to an alka-selzer, but it might have something to do with the soft flex, that makes this board so easy to ride that it’ll make even the most red-eyed, regret-filled mornings a pleasure. The ‘Flat Kick’ reverse camber helps make it playful, and of course the true twin shape means getting your switch BS180s on will be a piece of piss. Well, easier anyway.
NIDECKER PLAY –WHAT THE BRAND SAYS
The Horrorscope FK was born as a late release limited edition board and is now our #1 selling model worldwide. Featuring pre-loaded positioning for expert level jibbers, and easy turnin’, mindless shreddin’ for those intermediate riders that want to expedite the learning curve. Transworld Snowboarding gave it the Good Wood nod in 2010, and after showing up in countless video parts and blogs, it became one of the most sought after boards in snowboarding. The Horrorscope FK takes no effort! Stable at high speeds! Perfect for hangovers! Jib like a mad man!
