CAPITA Defenders of Awesome (DOA) Wide snowboard 2025 - 157W


Do believe the hype. Grab the CAPiTA DOA and make *the* snowboarder’s snowboard your own.


The 2025 CAPiTA Defenders of Awesome (or DOA) has continued its reputation as being one of the most sought after snowboard every year and the number one selling snowboard in the CAPiTA line for seven years. Like its name, everything about this board is awesome; from its responsive hybrid camber profile that will keep you stable underfoot and offer enough pop to jump off and over everything in sight, to its lightweight, high impact resistant core for an increased lifespan, to the harder, faster, stronger Sintered Quantum Drive base that will leave all your friends in the dust as you fly down the mountain.


With such a stellar reputation you'd think the rumours couldn't possibly be true, but this board boasts performance and power beyond its price point, and with an unprecedented 7 consecutive Transworld Good Wood awards, the DOA talks a big game and backs it up without question.



  • Board Type: Park Laps and Everywhere Else
  • Camber Type: Resort V1 Profile - Positive Camber through the middle of the board with a small section of Flat from after the inserts to the contact points, and small rocker sections in the tip and tail for a catch free ride. This board rides with the pop and great carving skills of a camber board, but you won't dig your nose and tail contact points in quite as hard which means less unexpected bails after landing your tricks.
  • Flex: 5.5 / 10 (1=soft, 10=stiff) - Great medium flex that can hit big jumps, press rails, and ride all over the mountain.
  • Shape: True Twin - Constructed the same from nose to tail, this board will ride switch and regular equally well for controlled jumps, landings, turns, and spins.
  • Blended Radial Sidecut - Blended Radial Sidecuts feature a single radius arc through the midsection of the board combined with a custom designed blend zone at the contact points. Varying the length of these blend zones and tailoring them specifically for certain aspects of riding greatly improves a board’s performance.
  • Core: P2 Superlight Core - The P2 Superlight Core features internal Poplar strips fused with a more dense and powerful lightweight Paulownia wood through the insert area and along the rails. This is an extremely lightweight and versatile core and is combined with high impact resistance and maximum pop.
  • Fortress Kevlar Bound Sidewalls - Flyweight Kevlar is laid up above the sidewalls for extra control and power in your turns.
  • 2 x 30mm Carbon Fibre Boosters - Carbon Fibre is laid parallel to the edge along the length of the board for more pop and power with minimal added weight.
  • Hybrid Holysheet Bi/Bi with Carbon & Magic Bean Resin - Custom weighted Biaxial top and bottom fiberglass increases strength and durability, which is impregnated with high performance, environmentally responsible, plant based resin.
  • Base: Quantum Drive Base - Harder, faster and stronger than their normal sintered base, this base will keep you zooming.
