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.

Great recommendations, super fast response
5 /5
I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!
