Among newer brands, Capita is turning out some of the most exciting and innovative boards around. The backcountry freestyle and park-inspired TFA was softened and improved from last year, so it's more forgiving of mistakes, on landings, and for intermediate riders. Despite the twin shape (the nose mirrors the tail), it has a set-back stance, and with camber between the feet and rocker at the tip and tail, this is the kind of nimble, springy ride you want in the park or pipe.
