The Capita Spring Break Slush Slasher is just like it’s name and although I din’t have any slush I had some thick Mt. Bachelor Powder. I’ve been wanting to get on this board for a while and thanks to Gravity Sports at Mt. Bachelor I finally got to. There should be more quiver boards like this at this price point.
Boots: Adidas Samba
Bindings: Union Atlas
Set Up: 18 front -6 back approximately 23″ wide
Approximate Weight: Felt medium bordering on light.
Flex: Snappy and poppy for a flat to rocker ride. Easy to butter off the tail and nose too.
Sizing: It’s pretty wide and can easily fit boots of many sizes but it seems like it will work best with size 10 and under. Maybe an 11 as well.
On Snow Feel: Small surfy and slashy. Felt almost like someone turned a fish into a skim board. It’s got the flat to make it feel stable under foot but the rocker to make it catch free, floaty and forgiving. It’s a fun short fatty.
Edge Hold: Not really much there and it just let’s go at the first sign of firm snow. It’s really truly for soft snow to slush.
Turn Initiation: Pretty quick despite how wide it is. It’s short and fat but nimble.
Skidded Turns: Super easy to slide and slash all over the place. Very forgiving and catch free.
Carving: pretty booring to carve.
Speed: A little bouncy and chattery if you try to bomb with the Slush Slasher but that’s expected.
Uneven Terrain: Not bad if you want to deftly turn through bumps and it’s not bad as long as you don’t want to hammer through bumps and tracked out terrain.
Powder: So there is a lot of set back on board with -12 inches so it’s pretty far back on the tail. Yes it slashes slush well but I would not hesitate to take this out in 2 feet of Sierra Cement and go ride it in the trees. You could tell this just wants to float.
Jibbing: Maybe but nah….
Pipe: Needs more edge hold unless you want to ride only messy soft spring pipe.
Jumps: Nice pop for a flat to rocker board and it’s good to dabble with directional air.
