The Icon. One of the most famous snowboards of all time.

The Defenders of Awesome series has a big reputation, and these boards back it up. A winner of the most coveted design award in snowboarding for an unprecedented seven years in a row, this model became our #1 selling snowboard and one of the most sought-after snowboards in the world. The D.O.A. features a next-generation hybrid camber design that delivers the pop and response of a cambered board with the predictability of reverse camber and is now available in an extended range of wide sizes.

The P2 Superlight Core™ reduces weight while providing high-impact resistance and maximum pop. With additional construction technology like Fortress™ Aramid Bound Sidewalls and a high-speed Quantum Drive™ base advancing these boards beyond their modest retail price, the D.O.A. series stands proud as the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything freestyle deck.

I tried DOA and it's really cool because you can do many things with it, going fast, turning, and even doing tricks. I used it with Union Ultra bindings, and it was simple to use and felt nice. You can change up how you attach your boots and still have fun. This snowboard looks modern and attractive. There are different... Read more

I found myself on the capita DOA un the 21/22 season, and here are some of my take away from the board! one thing I noticed immediately was the playfulness of the board, given its stiffer to medium flex date, with the rOcker in the nose and take it really gives this board some life when trying butters, given the...

This board was a blast. This board is built for those high level beginner riders and up looking to explore the mountain and ride a little bit of everything! This board can feel right at home in the park all day or spend its time hitting high speeds and dodging trees. It's a versatile board with a hybrid camber profile... Read more
Ideal for
  • Best for the all mountain rider who wants to ride a little of everything.
  • This board is best for the rider who want a good flexing, stable feeling board.
  • Best for non stop adventures all over the mountain. Park to powder this board can do a little of everything.
Not ideal for
  • Not the best board in deep powder.
  • True twin shape so not quite as much versatility that would be seen in other all mountain boards.
  • Mellow mid flex board so not the most stable board at high charging speeds.

All Purpose, All fFun!

Originally posted at capitasnowboarding.com on Jan 27, 2024
Such a fun board that can go anywhere. Loads of pop, with a very lively feel. Easy to turn. It holds a good edge, yet can still be pressed without too much effort. Defender of the Awesome for life.

Nate was super knowledgeable & friendly!
5 /5
Nothing but great things to say about Nate! He was SO responsive and offered many suggestion in my price point. He tailored my ski equipment based on my body needs. He knew things I’ve never even thought about, like my high arches and how that would impact boot selection. We had a blast picking out my skis and he was so patient as I went back and forth many times. I recommend everyone work with Nate!

I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!
