Not that kind of “DOA”—Defenders of Awesome is this boards moniker. Capita DOA is the all around “good guy” board that has more than something that everyone will love. DOA blends various technologies to create a board that plays nice in the park, performs on the groomers, and still floats powder.
Defenders of Awesome has a bit of flex inherent in its abilities, which makes it more sensitive and responsive for messing around in the park and when dashing through trees. DOA is a great all mountain deck.
If you are an advanced beginner to expert rider looking for a board that performs all around the mountain, but still has enough responsiveness to play in the park, Defenders of Awesome would be, well, awesome!
