Children of the Gnar bridges the board gap between boys and men. this is when the youth starts riding better than their parents if that hasn’t happened already. Inspired by the award-winning DOA series, the Children of the Gnar features a next-generation hybrid camber design delivering the pop and response of a camber board. New for 2018, is a user-friendly HMC extruded base and wider waist widths for larger boot sizes. For young shredders, Capita presents... Children of the gnar.
Often shorter in length and featuring a true twin shape, freestyle boards are built for riders who spend most of their time in the terrain park and the halfpipe. (They’re also well-suited to urban riding where rails and jib features make freestyle riding a dream.) To keep these boards poppy and playful, many models feature traditional camber or flat camber profiles (but all-mountain freestyle may feature some form of hybrid camber profile to make the board more versatile).
Twin shapes (sometimes called true twins) are symmetrical tip to tail, including their flex pattern. The twin shape allows for bindings to be mounted more centrally too, making twin models well suited to freestyle riding where spinning and riding switch is most common.
CAMBER & ROCKER PROFILE
Boards with a hybrid camber profile are boards that feature a camber between the feet with a rocker at the tip and tail. This technology gives you a more stable platform with control between the feet and tail, while still providing the float and maneuverability you need for a wide range of conditions.
ADULT SIZE CHART
Affecting things like turning and stability at speed, your board’s length is a significant factor in how you ride (and, possibly, how much much you have). But here’s no crystal ball telling you exactly what length board you should ride. There are, however, a few guidelines. A general rule when figuring out the right snowboard length is to find something between the height of your chin and your nose. But factors like boot size and rider weight will affect this.
Advanced riders, and those who weigh more than others of the same height, should look for a board that is closer to their nose. (And expert riders may choose something even longer.) Less advanced riders, on the other hand, and those who weight less than others of the same height will generally be better off with a board closer to the height of their chin. The type of board you choose and what terrain you’ll be riding matter too. Board models that are more freestyle-oriented are generally shorter and better for quick turns, for example, while boards designed for longer turns on bigger lines generally longer.
