They say: At the centre of all true chaos and self-destructive debauchery there is always a tortured soul.
We say: Jibby twin with a profile that combines a flat base between the bindings with rocker at the tip and tail to keep the board feeling playful. This means it’s a bit twitchy at high speeds, but there’s also a conventional camber version.
Tester says: Carves hard, works in the pipe and handles heavy snow conditions.

- History lesson: Capita was founded by former Burton pro-rider and art afficianado Jason Brown in the early years of this century and quickly established itself as the anarchic devil-child of the snowboarding world. Capita combines this snotty punk-rock attitude with graphics by people who take themselves seriously as artists. But the brand is also renowned for its sense of humour, as classic designs like the twin-swallowtail Travis Parker pro-model showed. The graphic told riders where not to grab to avoid looking gay.
- Ridden by: Park rats who roll up the bottom of their beanies and keep their middle finger in a constant state of readiness to flick at police, parents or pisteurs. And unfortunately, the kind of wanker who thinks name-dropping Dash Snow makes him cool.
