The slush-slasher is yellow again! Hooray!!! This CAPITA/SpringBreak is a fell good board, a comfort-snowboard if you will, and let's face it, last seasons slush-slasher's colors were depressing as cheat. Those colors may fit other boards with other personalities, but the slush-slasher I see it as a FUN board, and a fun board requires fun colors.

Now in all fairness, the board I'm reviewing is the 2017/2018 model, the one I owned (and my ho my, did I own it, happy times on that short flexy bright thing), I can do it because the capita/springBreak slush-slasher is a board that changed few or nothing at all in this 2 seasons. And it's yellow again! (OK I'll stop it now).
The first day I've tried it my company said "you're flying on that thing!". It was in a figurative way, but I ended up really flying a bit on it since I've used it all season which included some considerable cliff-drops, although most of the season was on trees and slopes.

To land bigger stuff the slush-slasher is obviously not the best snowboard, but it's a board that makes the not so big stuff a lot more fun, maybe because it makes it a bit more technical or because it just makes it different. It's sooo refreshing to ride a board like this capita/springBreak when your mind tells you "lets just enjoy, no goals, fell the fun". And as riding different boards will naturally expand your skill-set, with the fun comes improvement.

So if you're looking for a little change, whether as a daily snowboard for more or less time or as a second/quiver board, the capita / spring break slush-slasher is here to make you smile. Just don't expect it to last forever, it's really not meant for that, the base and core are very soft and easy to blow up with heavier riding. Like most things, it's fun while it lasts!

My new every-day board.
Apart of being a bit too soft it's all I've been dreaming about during the whole summer, really playful with an amazing grip due to the camber between feet and to YES.'s edge technology "under bite" - the edges going inside 1mm close to the bindings positions - that works really well.
The extra grip from the "under bite" edge technology plus the pop from the camber between feet, both make the board change edges REALY fast. And the rocker at tip and tail let you initiate turns easily and gives you magical floating powers in powder.
Probably the most playful board I've tried that also gives you a good control sensation at moderate-fast speeds. And it's a true twin, which makes it really playful in both directions. YES! A great freestyle board that can also rip some steep spots at slow to moderate-fast speeds and also carve some great lines in mid-range groomed terrain.
So, the verdict: A bit too soft to go too fast. Great for every beginner, for every freestyler and for most of the allmountain intermediate to advanced riders. The most playful board I've had. Love it. Will only leave it home in the rare days I need a "big gun" for hard freeride or for super fast carves.
