yo sup guys Kevin here today up in Whistler and I'm testing out the new capita do a as he has know I've been talking about this board for a while and today perfect early seasons freeride conditions to put this board to the test first and foremost guys turning on this board you really feel the camber come into a play as you go around each turn the camber helps to give you stability and control especially at high speeds and that turning feeling definitely more geared toward intermediate or advanced riders riding this board at high speeds gave me a lot of control really snappy between turns and just overall giving me that high performance feeling next up and something that's really important for me for a freeride board is how much snap and pop I can get for an ollie and this board definitely delivers what I expected because of the mid flex in this board it really allows you to load up the tail pop a clean and high Ollie and just feel in control and balance in the air and then on top of that for the landing when you start to put down your tail that mid flex actually allows the board to come down nice and smooth giving you a controlled landing as well so for Ollie's for pop for landings I'm absolutely loving this board definitely delivering what I expected an unexpected bonus feature this board is how pressable it is the last board I was on the capital horoscope very soft board easy to flex and on this one because of the mid flex I was expecting it to be a bit more difficult but because of that slight rocker towards the nose and tail it's very easy to press get into a tail press or even go for a butter so something I love to do while free riding is just getting into some fun butters and this board definitely allows you to do that up here in Whistler we did have some fresh snow and I did take it into the powder definitely not this board strength for riding through the pod ride to get way onto the back foot to keep the nose up so not the easiest board for powder riding but it still got the job done awesome guys so overall I'm super stoked on this new capita do a I think this is gonna be my go-to board for the rest of the season for park for free riding if you guys have any questions about it definitely leave them down below I'll do more tests on this board in the future so give this video a thumbs up if you guys want to see more tests on the capita DOA I'll also put a link in the description to where you can check this board out thanks so much for watching guys have fun with their riding I'll see you the next video soon

    Great review. I am not a talented snowboarder, but I love the sport. I am planning on buying this board for the upcoming season. my only concern is how catchy the edge would be. I have been looking for a board that is a VERY forgiving when catching edges, but I love this board. Oh, I only use the board to make it down the mountain, I don't do tricks or go to the park at all. Just want to make it down the mountain safe. By the way, I am in the northeast, so our conditions are very crappy, icy, and slushy here. I would appreciate if you can give some advice. Thanks Kevin.

    I'm wanting this board with union force bindings. I am a size 10 (UK) boot, will I need the M/L or L/XL Bindings? If the larger will I need the DOA that's wider, or will a regular 158cm work fine? Love the review so much can't wait to get on one!

    Thanks for the review. This board sounds awesome and a great fit for my riding style. However, I've heard other reviews say that the durability of this board isn't great. What is your experience regarding its durability?

    I decided to stop at a local used sports store & see if they had any decent boards, which is extremely rare. However, I just happen to glance up on the wall & there was a brand new, never even used, Capita D.O.A w/bindings !!!!! You could almost hear the angels sing lol but no way could the size be right. WRONG! 154 & exactly the size my son likes to ride (mind you his size 11 feet are pushing it lol.)! I was so stoked! Clearly I'm not dumb enough to pass it up & barely pd over $200 w/bindings!!!! Although, I wish that I could have saved it for X-mas, I also had to make sue those big feet of his wouldn't drag & the store only has a 7 day return policy. However, my son is excited to get back out & show me up on his own board for a change lol. I still cant believe this find! Ive spent a year researching snowboards, trying to decide on our set ups. I can officially check him off the list. NOW IT'S MY TURN but I have to pick smart! We are a tad competitive & I don't need my son to have any more advantages over me! Well at least not more than he already naturally does ! lol. This would be a great time to respond T.J @ Boardarchive 😉

    coming from a burton 156 pro axis, I used a horroscope and LOVED IT but it was a 151, the short board made tricks (butters/180's) so much easier. I want to get the DOA but everyone is telling me to get a longer board, ie. 156-158. Why is that??

    I have been looking at this board since last year, and my first board I bought it too long and too stiff and I want to avoid that again. I'm 5'7" and 125lbs, I currently ride a 154cm board and I was wondering would 150cm be too short for someone as small as me??

    Really close to buying the DOA, going to test some boards out next weekend…hoping you could offer some advice on a board. Looking for something I can kill the whole mountain(mainly park) on but I want a more jibby board, something playful so I can really learn rails on but still kill the rest of park like jumps and side hits. Thanks Kev. Hope to hear back.

    Hey Kevin can you test out the 2019 Salomon Assassin? Trying to compare and figure out the differences between the Assassin and the DOA. Anybody out there that has tried both please comment below, big thanks.

    Anyone saying this board is not for all mountain simply doesn't get it. It definitely is! I'll take one of my DOAs and you can pick any board you want, and I'll leave you wishing you could….
