Capita Spring Break Powder 151 Mini Tree Hunter 2020 Review by The Good Ride
The Capita Spring Break Powder 151 Mini Tree Hunter is a short wide and thick board that rides powder differently than any board we tried except for other Spring Break boards.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
How This Review Happened: We had a couple of laps at a frantic manic demo day.
Conditions: Some pretty light but well tracked leftover powder at snowbasin about 1ft deep.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs), Peter (Size 8, 5’11” 185lbs)
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADV
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles, Footprint Insole Technology Gameghangers Low Profile
Bindings: Union Strata
Similar Boards (but not the same) That We Compared This To:
Capita Spring Break 158 Powder Glider, Capita Spring Break 161 Tree Hunter, Capita Spring Break Night Hawk, Capita Spring Break Powder Racer, Capita Spring Break Powder Drifter.
Set-Up: Approx 22” Wide. 21 front -6 back. Set all the way back.
Approximate Weight: Feels on the light side of normal to being light without feeling like it’s an ultralight.
Sizing: It’s pretty wide but I would keep it under size 10. Anything over that size might either cause toe/heel drag or change the personality of the ride too much.
Flex/Buttering: Seeing how the flex has evolved over the years with these spring break boards has been fun. The way the board can bend now while still feeling medium in flex and still pop is really fun. It butters well and pops really well for a flat to rocker board.
On Snow Feel/Ability Level/Skidded Turns: Very stable and it tracks well one footing off the chair or on a flat cat track. The Capita Spring Break Powder 151 Mini Tree Hunter has a very easy forgiving ride that skids turns well and could work with a beginner if that beginner was loaded and just wants to burn cash.
Edge Hold: Not great edge hold and we have found these spring break boards to start letting go of that edge when the snow get’s harder.
Turn Initiation: Pretty medium quick and it really feels like it’s name. The Capita Spring Break Powder 151 Mini Tree Hunter can really jam through tight spots.
Turning Experience/Carving: Fun to turn and play around with on groomers but you don’t get this to carve.
Powder: So the Capita Spring Break Powder 151 Mini Tree Hunter is the smallest of the Spring Break line other than the Slush Slashers but it still has incredible float for it’s size. It sits a little more centered than you would think even when set all the way back. For me, I liked the directional float much better of the 158 Powder Glider and 161 Tree Hunter and those would be the boards I take out when it gets super deep. I liked the directional float of the Slush Slasher a little better but I’m all about the more set back the better. If you like more of a centered feel on board then you would like this better. This would be my mid-storm day board where I’m riding trees as the keeps getting deeper. For Peter, he would take this or any Spring Break board in the deep deep and thought it was just fine.
Speed: For a short, wide, thick, somewhat light hollow feeling ride the Capita Spring Break Powder 151 Mini Tree Hunter can pick up decent speed but it isn’t a bomber.
Uneven Terrain: Same thing goes for what we said with speed. These boards used to have this flex that felt like it could snap if bent to far and it also made it somewhat cranky in uneven snow. Nowadays this isn’t the case with the evolution of this flex and how rubbery flexy it can feel when hammering through uneven snow.
So overall the 161 Tree Hunter and 158 Powder Glider are still our personal favorites by just a shade but this is a very recommendable ride for those that want something small, floaty and different and we could easily see how you could disagree. If they weren’t all soo damn expensive we would love to own a good bit of this line.
