They need to bring back camber. Never thought I'd see them bringing back that old Ride 3D construction tech on the SuperDOA. 

Hype-wise I think they aren't an edgy small brand anymore, they are now a big mainstream brand. They've never really been the same since Jason Brown quit/was pushed out. 

 Jason left the brand after 2 years of being in business.  CAPiTA is now 20 years old.  What most of you know of and love from CAPiTA happened well after he left. 

Camber has always been in the line too.  Even during the reverse revolution.  Theres different variations thru out the line.  Indoor, Outsiders, DOA, SuperDOA, Birds, COTG, Asymulator, are all camber dominant boards with differnt blend zones.

Only the Indoor and the Outsiders are, what i'd describe as, camber boards.

BTW what is missing from capitas line is a cambered (outsiders/indoor profile) directional twin (bigger nose, set back etc). I get it that it might not make sense from a market/financial POV but i can't help notice the gap in the line.

Before that wasn't it the wizard stick and before that the food court gangster - or am I confusing my model lines?

There are a bunch of cool boards from Capita. I just wish that they were available in my size. A 165w DOA or Super DOA or a 165w Mercury would be awesome. Same thing with a 165w Kazu. I may actually buy a 164 Navigator this year (though I wish it was 2 cm longer and about a half cm wider).

Also, that DOA bend is almost all camber. It's only right at the contact points where it goes to early rize, and the flat sections just inboard of that are only a couple of cm long. I obviously haven't ridden one in my size, but I did try a 161w. It was rad. Just too small for me.

Wizard Stick is DWD.  NAS and Quiver Killer were two different boards.  Quiver was a direction twin camber with radial side cut and a longer nose than tail.  NAS was based off the gen 3 BSOD.

have you ridden anything that’s cambered with early rise or flat contact points? it feels like camber, but slightly more forgiving.

Sure, but both effectively cambered directional twins like he mentioned

Their line could do with a tapered, directional, all-mountain ripper.  Essentially, the BSOD or Warpspeed with taper.  I think people would be into it. 

Isn't that the Navigator?

Nah, the Navigator is rocker-to-flat, which gives it a more chill feel.  I've taken a few laps on a friend's Charlie 164 and, while it's a really fun board, I prefer the more dynamic feel of my old Warpspeed's early-rise camber - it's a really fun profile.

I like the flat to early rise nose profile on my 64 Charlie, but it's just a little narrow for me - especially in the tail. I'm keeping it cuz it's a 2nd year version, and I love the monster face graphics. I'll probably pick up a Navigator at some point, as it looks to be the same profile on a slightly wider (about a centimeter in the tail) board.

This coming season's Navi is a beauty. If it was camber instead of flat, would've considered it for sure.

The tail width is becoming the main spec I'm looking at now, especially on directional tapered boards. 

Matty what is the minimum tail width you can ride without booting out?

Probably looking for around a 305 in a twin-ish shape, but I can go down around a 300 on a directional shape as long as the stance is set back enough that my back foot is moved  back significantly closer to that wide point in the tail. My Korua Asytoni has a listed tail width of 293, and I am usually okay cranking pretty deep carves on that with as slammed back as my stance is - I do occasionally boot out on it though. My Charlie Slasher has a listed tail width of 290, and I boot out on that one just from traversing a steeper slope. The stance is less set-back than my other pow boards and the Charlie is also narrower both in the waist and the tail. Hoping that the 301 tail width on the Navigator would make it more rideable for me than the Charlie.

How about you? What's your cut-off for tail widths re: booting out?

For now 31 is my cutoff. My deep thinker has a tail width of 30.7, I had a couple situations last year in some really steep technical stuff where if felt like I stepped on a banana peel with my back foot. Would be nice to see Capita makes some "real"wide boards that still have that Capita pop.

What do you think about the Deep Thinker?  Sometimes I think about picking up a 163w myself for an all-arounder.
