Capita Snowboards: By Riders for Riders

Posted by Administrator on 1/23/2015

Capita Snowboards from Ken JonesAt Ken Jones Ski Mart, we’re proud to offer snowboards from the most dynamic and trusted brands in the industry. Now, this is going to sound like a deranged comparison but, snowboard companies are like our children – it’s simply impossible to pick a favorite. However, Capita Snowboards has a unique history, produces high quality products, sponsors some of the best riders in the sport, and has that “rock star” attitude that just can’t be ignored.

This may sound cliché but is entirely true – Capita Snowboards was founded by riders for riders. In 2000, ex-Burton rider Jason Brown and Blue Montgomery founded the “Capita Super Scary Corporation” as a means to celebrate creative freedom and expression throughout the growing subculture of snowboarding. Based out of Seattle, WA, Capita Snowboards, like most honest companies, had to face failure time and again in order to see their vision become a reality. What kept them afloat was the high quality craftsmanship and bold graphics of their amazing snowboards, as well as a company-wide desire to “seek the truth.”

On the Capita Snowboards website, Brown says, “The truth is inclusive, not exclusive, and CAPiTA is the same. You don’t have to be the best snowboarder on the hill, or the best artist in the scene, or the coolest kid in town, you just have to be honest with yourself and love snowboarding like we do.”

A Shared Vision

We share Capita Snowboards’ mind set here at Ken Jones Ski Mart. We believe that snowboarding isn’t something that should exclude anyone or become a sport so oversaturated with consumerism that it ceases to be fun. This is part of the reason that we graciously stock Capita Snowboards. The other reason is that they make damn good snowboards. Since their rocky inception back in 2000, Capita has evolved into a company that has seen many of its snowboards win the Good Wood Award from Transworld Snowboarding and helped to usher in a new wave of uniquely designed, durable, and rider-friendly snowboards.

Capita Snowboards is also an environmentally conscious company – choosing to work with recycled materials as much as possible. They use environmentally friendly inks, biodegradable bean derivative top sheets, and 100% recycled ABS sidewalls. They also sponsor some of the most aggressive riders in the sport today. In fact, they’ve just recently released an all new Capita movie called “Defenders of Awesome 2: Stay Bad Ass,” which you can download here.
