Why we chose the CAPiTA Paradise Snowboard: You’d be hard pressed to find another board this good, for this price.
The CAPiTA Paradise is a jill of all trades, a great partner in crime for the rider who doesn’t want to label themselves. Your one stop shop for all-mountain idealism. Cheap as chips and just as tasty, who needs a whole quiver when you’ve got an arrow that’ll smash through anything?
The concept of Paradise varies wildly from person to person, for some it’s getting a soothing bedtime story and a kiss on the forehead from Tom Hardy, for others it’s a room filled with strippers and blow, but for argument’s sake, we’re gonna say Paradise is getting freshies on a bluebird pow day with your homies. And while this snowboard can’t control the weather, it is your VIP Access-All-Areas pass to explore every part of the mountain.
“The versatile nature of the Paradise means you can go sniffing out pow stashes in the morning, and cruise over to the park to booter shoot when it gets tracked out”
While terrain specific boards are awesome, they can pigeon-hole you at times. Your super directional swallow tail is gonna be ace when it’s been spewing all week, but won’t fare so well when the conditions only allow for white out park laps. The versatile nature of the Paradise means you can go sniffing out pow stashes in the morning, and cruise over to the park to booter shoot when it gets tracked out.
The camrock profile offers a stable and responsive feel with the benefit of floaty and playful rockered tips. When you’re up on your edges you engage the sidecut by compressing the midbody camber, powering up the whole edge through the arc of the turn for some hefty bite. The early rise tips smooth out turn initiation and loosen up landings, giving you a bit of extra leeway across all snow conditions. Aggression through the body of the board, forgiveness in the nose and tail, it’s a win-win situation.
