The following is a quick overview of the 2023 Capita snowboards lineup.
First I will take a look at any new boards for the 2022-23 season, and any 2021-22 boards that aren't returning with a 2023 model.
Then I'll place each board into the categories where I see them fitting best.

All 2023 Capita Snowboards by Category
Below, I have categorized Capita's 2022-23 lineup. This is according to the categories here at SnowboardingProfiles.com and not necessarily the same as how Capita might label them.
Of course these are only broad categories as every board is different, but this is a rough guide.
CAPITA BEGINNER SNOWBOARDS
CAPITA PARK/FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
CAPITA ALL-MOUNTAIN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
CAPITA AGGRESSIVE ALL-MTN-FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS
CAPITA ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
CAPITA AGGRESSIVE ALL-MOUNTAIN SNOWBOARDS
CAPITA FREERIDE SNOWBOARDS
CAPITA POWDER & SHORT/WIDE SNOWBOARDS
CAPITA SPLIT BOARDS
CAPITA YOUTH SNOWBOARDS
So there you have the 2023 Capita snowboards.
Out with the Old
The only retiring board is the Asymulator. Disappointed to this board discontinued. It was such a fun board.
In with the New
The biggest change (apart from unfortuinately dropping the Asymulator) to the Capita lineup is the inclusion of 2 new split boards. Previously, for a long time, Capita only had the one splitboard - the Neoslasher.
But the introduction of the Mega Split and Powder Racer Split triples their splitboard offerings.
The only other change is the new kid's powder board, The Children of the POW.
Changes to Existing Models
There have been several changes to returning models - so whilst there wasn't a lot of change in terms of new boards coming in and old boards retiring, they did tweak their existing lineup quite a bit, including:
- Ultrafear: Downgraded base to "Superdrive FX" (sintruded) from the "Quantum Drive".
- Pathfinder Rev: New size - 162W - otherwise no other changes.
- Pathfinder (camber version): No changes but new size - 162W
- Outerspace Living: New "multizone" core
- Paradise: Also gets the new "multizone" core
- DOA: New "P2 Superlight Core". One new size as well - the 164
- Birds of a Feather: Unsurprisingly also gets the new "P2 Superlight Core"
- SuperDOA: Upgraded core - "3D Thermopolymer Supercore". New topsheet (lighter). Aftermarket tune.
- Outsiders: New "Aramid Body Armor"
- Indoor Survival: No changes, but 4 new sizes - 160, 155W, 158W, 161W
- Mercury: New core (Hover Core replacing the Panda Core) and loses the bamboo power rods. One new size (147).
- Mega Merc: New sizes - 156W, 158W and 160W
- Black Snowboard of Death: New "Thermopolymer Hover Core". Also new topsheet (lighter apparently) and new inlaid alloy skid plates.
- Navigator: New core (P2 Superlight replacing the Dual Core). New Powderdrive base, replacing the Quantum Drive.
- Kazu Kokubo Pro: Slightly updated core.
- Powder Twin: New "Carbon V-Tech Amplifiers"
- Spring Break Slush Slasher: New camber profile (now camber underfoot, instead of flat) and new dimensions - quite a bit narrower in the waist, but only very marginally narrower in the nose, slightly less taper, but still lots, sidecut vastly different (on the 147 it's gone from 13.3m to just 7.2m - though that's no surprise given that the waist is so much smaller and the nose and tail only a little smaller).
