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!

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.

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.

Spencer went above and beyond to help make me comfortable with my first snowboard purchase. I worried about getting something wide enough for my big feet and versatile enough to help me progress as a newer rider. He curated the perfect list for me and even made a 17 minute video addressing me personally and answering all my questions. He is personable, knowledgeable and quick to respond. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I appreciate you Spencer.

5 /5
Started snowboarding this year and am determined to get real better at it. I've rented multiple times at big bear and have gone to whistler, but I've always wanted to get my own gear. When looking online and looking at various brands and sizes, it can be overwhelming for someone newer like me. It was great to speak with a specialist and get real time feedback, including video and audio. Jared was super approachable and helped me pick my first snowboard/bindings. Thanks Jared brotha, keep up the great work!

I started exploring Curated with Andrew well before I was ready to buy. I let Andrew know I wasn’t in a position to buy right out of the gate, but that didn’t deter him from being as helpful as possible. I even had a few rounds of re-doing my selections, and I never felt like I was being a bother. Question after question, he had answers for me and follow up questions to ensure he was giving me the best information possible. I can’t review the board itself yet, but I have COMPLETE faith in my selection based on all the conversation between Andrew and I. It sounds like we frequent the same resort, so I hope I get the opportunity to meet him and thank him in person!
