Turn Ons/Swipe Right: Almost effortless float for a twin. Could be a good Ultra Wide Mountain Freestyle board for big footed riders. Very reasonable price.
Turn Offs/Swipe Left: Hard to find a legit turn off. Riding this as a Wide or Ultra Wide might limit the float if you are a bigger guy.
The Capita Spring Break Powder Twin is a very unique ultra floaty super wide twin that makes switch and centered stance powder riding super easy for kooks like us.

Here are some ideal US boot sizes for the Capita Spring Break Powder Twin boards. You can of course go bigger or smaller but these work best for not turning the board slower than it should be and not having the dreaded Toe & Heel Drag.
Shape/Camber/On Snow Feel/Ability Level
You have a true twin underfoot and that is why its called Capita Spring Break Powder Twin.
There is a little camber in between the feet going to a small flat transition area and then going to a mellow but long rocker in the nose/tail. It makes the Capita SB Powder Twin a very wide stable floaty twin. It is easy to skid turns but the width makes it more challenging if the boot size is on the smaller side like my size 9’s. If you are super bit in the foot then it will be easy to manage.
The medium/stiff flex makes Capita Spring Break Powder Twin seem like it could handle more than the max weight recommendation. Despite that med/stiff flex the rocker after the bindings makes it easier to butter than you would think. There is also a snappy pop to it.
The base has an easy glide to it and its much better than the Spring Breaks I rode before they changed up the base in 2020. The Capita Spring Break Powder Twin also is pretty damp so it can point it really well for a twin with soo much rocker. It really minimizes the clown shoe effect.
I didn’t get much uneven terrain but the Capita Spring Break Powder Twin has the flex and dampness to keep micro bumpy snow of most types from sending the chatter up into your joints.
Good but not great. I didn’t have much hard snow but did find an icy patch or two in the trees (you can hear one in the intro) and it held well enough to not slide me onto my ass.
So the Capita Spring Break Powder Twin is a super wide board so it isn’t easy to initiate a turn but the deep sidecut makes it easier to turn in the trees than I thought. Still I would hate to have to turn through a bump line or through some really tight trees etc. If you are a 12-13 the 159 will turn like it should and maybe even a touch on the fast side.
Haven’t tried it yet.
So it is very difficult to get a twin to float like a tapered directional board. The Capita Spring Break Powder Twin does it though and that is no easy task. For my specs (check above) it just kept me on top of the snow regular or switch and made my run in knee high powder feel super easy. It is about the best I have ever seen any twin ride. You don’t set this back. Just ride it centered in powder and have at it. If you are a bigger footed rider who is pretty heavy/big then this will probably not float for you like it did for me.
So the combo of width and a really deep sidecut makes this a super fun powder twin for a guy with my specs and I think this also could be a pretty fun mtn freestyle twin for a bigger footed rider too.
