Time to drop the hammers and grab the 2017 CAPiTA Thunderstick snowboard. This versatile deck caters to almost all riding styles and ability levels. When you are planning to buy your first own snowboard instead of using rental gear, then you will appreciate this accessibly priced and durable CAPiTA board.
Its design features a True Twin shape combined with a Traditional Camber profile. The camber zones underfoot will give you precise board control. The small flat zones at the contact points not only give this board a more forgiving feel, but also allow you to boost off jumps and freestyle with ease. The softer to medium flex gives it a super-poppy touch. On snow, this is fun and forgiving board. It’s able to keep a good edge hold, while providing you with a relaxing ride down the mountain. When you’re in the park and freestyling this board feels solid. Plus you can easily hold your line and setting up your jump. On groomed slopes we were able to really push this board. At high speed we did notice some chatter. On icy surfaces it did tend to lose grip and slide underfoot.
Overall, the 2017 CAPiTA Thunderstick snowboard is a good choice for those of us who are looking for a capable all-around snowboard that doesn’t kill their wallet and helps to progress their riding skills. Furthermore, it’s a durable, easy-to-repair board that you can thrash all season long.
