Construction and Materials
The Birds of a Feather takes design cues from the iconic DOA, but CAPiTA use women’s specific geometry and shaping to really dial in the ride. The bods at CAPiTA take a pretty space-age approach with their tech, and internally, the Birds of a Feather makes the most of this and doesn’t hold back when it comes to construction. It’s this mix of high-end materials that gives this board its perfect balance of rider-friendly feel and class-leading performance. Heading this up is the advanced P2 Superlight core that combines Paulownia and Poplar to create a lightweight but powerful foundation for the Birds of a Feather.
However, to give the board a bit more pop and power through the length without sacrificing the more rider-friendly flex, Capita’s engineers add carbon beams running either side of the insert packs from contact point to contact point. These carbon beams work in harmony with the more freestyle-focused biax glass structural layers to deliver the Birds of a Feather’s balance of on-piste performance and freestyle feel.
To ensure that the Birds of a Feather has all the speed you need to take advantage of its state-of-the-art build, it utilises the super-fast Quantum Drive base. This base material is an evolution of Capita’s regular Ultradrive base and is a little denser and has better wax-holding properties.

Softer, lighter and slightly narrower than the DOA, but the Birds of a Feather definitely holds its own against its big brother. A real go-anywhere, do-anything snowboard. Whether you’re lapping the park with your crew, cutting up the corduroy or sniffing out pockets of powder, you’ll find a reliable playmate with the Birds of a Feather. It’s one of our favourite boards for this season for its versatility, playful nature, eco creds and all-round fun factor.
- Super versatile in a range of terrain
- Fun with a capital F
- It’s not our favourite board to ride super deep snow

“YES! I could just leave it there, but I’ll explain a little bit. Very rarely do I find ‘quiver killers’ live up to the hype but I’m happy to report the CAPiTA Birds of a Feather absolutely does. But not only does it smash it all over in any terrain, it’s actually pretty easy to ride? Some performance-orintated snowboards are great but my god they’re a bit of a chore to ride, no such issues here. Great for cruisy riding when you’re feeling lazy or scranned a few too many beers the night before, but really able to go hard when you’re feeling like you want to push it. I’m a big fan, I think I’ll be adding one of these to my colelction this season.”
