They say: What will define the death and resurrection of the American Dream?
We say: A relatively inexpensive, low-tech board that would suit the rider looking to develop their park skills. With its true twin shape, this is comfortable going switch and handling rails, but even the 152 will be too short for all but the shortest freeriders.
Tester says: Playful, pretty soft, but the camber gives it that extra snap.

- 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.
