New Recruit | Arthur Longo Joins CAPiTA

Longo becomes the newest addition to the CAPiTA Team, and gets his own signature, limited edition deck

Scott StevensKazu KokuboJess KimuraKevin BackstromBrandon CocardMike Rav. Johnny O’Conner. Phil Jacques. The CAPiTA team reads like a who’s who of snowboard badassery. Who, then, could you possibly add to a roster so stacked that they wouldn’t just fit in, but raise the ridiculously high bar that’s already been set? Arthur-flippin’-Longo, that’s who. 

Hell yeah. The Chamonix shredding, side hitting, cover-shot collecting king of pop just became the latest member to step aboard the Mothership.

Along with his arrival to the team comes the announcement of a very limited, signature edition CAPiTA Mercury, which will be shipping out to shops today. Grab ‘em while you can, these things will pop off the shelves as easily they pop off the side hits. For our full low down on this all-mountain charger, check out our review on the Mercury here.

As a rider who cut his teeth in the pipe, picking up medals at X-Games Europe and the Burton US Open, Longo is now more commonly found sending it off wedges out in the backcountry, or gapping punters on the pistes.

“Welcome to the team, Longo”

Asides from his instant cult classics, Sidehit Euphoria Chapter 1 and Chapter 2, Arthur hasn’t just featured in but headlined some of the biggest team movies of the past couple seasons. Volcom’s True To This; Union’s Stronger; and Vans’ Landline, to name a few.

Welcome to the team, Longo. We’re amping to see what you’ve got lined up for the season.
