2022 Capita Defenders of Awesome Snowboard
MEN’S / BLENDED RADIAL / TRUE TWIN
Back by popular demand, the Kult of Positive Force has been summoned once again from the astral plane!
By utilizing the teachings of The Being of Light, combined with the power of the Mind Development Pyramid, we can learn to manipulate unlimited energy, unlock human potential, and let light stream forth into the minds of men!
What is true for the individual is equally true for humanity as a whole.
Many of the problems that we face in the world exist because we have distorted or blocked the divine circulatory flow from our higher, spiritual nature. Humanity today needs to strengthen this inner connection to enable the true energies of light and love to qualify human thought, activity, and relationships. Our separative thinking has led us to lose sight of the reality of mankind’s interconnectedness. The split between humankind's spiritual essence and its outer form has generated many forms of conflict and psychological disturbances. The effects of this split can manifest in tragic forms such as war, famine, pollution, and the environmental degradation that threaten so much of life on Earth.
One initiative that is working to establish this re-connection, and which involves tens of thousands of people throughout the world, is The Church of Quantum Interconnectedness.
Join together brothers and sisters as we embark on a spiritual journey to Defend Awesome!
Let the healing begin!

- Our Take: Defending Awesome since 2011 the DOA returns as one of the most versatile boards in our line-up, and coming in at 460 bucks makes it a must have for anyone who rides everywhere from the rope tow to the rock garden. Camber is king and is the most effective camber profile for holding an edge, cracking ollies and simply destroying everything in its path. The blended contact points make this board super easy to ride since it makes it harder to catch an edge, making this board exceptional at spinning off lips and technical rail tricks. This is the most popular board in our line amongst our AM team and REP riders because of its versatility, as well as our PRO riders like Dustin Craven and Kevin Backstrom who take this thing everywhere from the slushy summer slopes of Mt. Hood to the nipple deep powder of the Japanese Backcountry.
- Rider Profile: Someone looking for a quiver killer, a do-it-all board that can ride any terrain you put in front of it. A rider who values the ease of progression and wants something inexpensive that will fuel his progression in freestyle snowboarding. Someone who wants an all-mountain board that is easy to ride but will support any level of snowboarding a human can possibly achieve.
- Recommended Bindings: This board is so versitile, you just pair it with your riding style.
