Hello and welcome to my Capita Spring Break Slush Slasher review.
Normally I would categorize a snowboard and compare it to other snowboards in a similar category. In this case I won’t be. This will be a less formal review.
Now, there are other snowboards that are kind of similar to this so I’m not saying it’s the only one in it’s category – but it is the only one that I’ve ridden like this.
Board: Capita Spring Break Slush Slasher 2017
Price: $359 (USD recommended retail)
Flex: Medium-Soft (3/10)
Rating Score: n/a
What Makes This Board Different?
A lot really.
To start with, throw all of the sizing rules out the window. This board is made to be super short and super wide. I rode the 151cm (the longest size available) which has a 286mm waist width!
The closest category I would put it in is a powder board – but it’s not really that either – it’s very soft flexing and very small compared to most powder boards.
The other thing that makes this board different? It’s more difficult to say fast than most snowboard names – try saying Slush Slasher 10 times fast! 🙂

Who is the Slush Slasher Most Suited to?
This board is very specialized and certainly not a quiver killer.
It is literally as it sounds – a board that is good at slashing the slush. It’s definitely a spring time board – as the name would also suggest. So, it’s quite specialized – though you can ride it in powder as well as slush.
This was a fun board to ride but of course has its limitations.
The Slush Slasher in More Detail
O.k. let’s take a more detailed look at what the Slush Slasher is capable of.
Board: Slush Slasher 2017, 151cm (286mm waist width)
Date: March 31st, 2016
Conditions: Slushy! Very appropriate conditions for this board! Very slushy and slow but fun conditions – especially on this board.
Bindings angles: +18/+3
The float in really deep powder, if I had any of that to try it on may not be as good as it’s float in slush – – but I still imagine it would do fine. It’s got the profile and the surface area.
Perfect in slush though.
Fun board to carve with and apparently awesome to euro carve – but I must admit I haven’t quite been able to master the euro carve just yet!
It’s a very narrow turn line – it has a 14.22m sidecut so no surprise there!
Not a board for riding at speed. You definitely get some stability out of all that width – but this board is short and soft flexing.
It’s fun for carving and buttering in slow and slushy conditions like I had – not so much if getting up lots of speed on a hard or icy groomer.
Let’s Break up this text with a Video
Actually pretty good on uneven terrain. It’s soft and has a raised nose that gets it above choppy snow. And it’s short so you can get it around the bumps pretty easy too.
It’s not one for jumping giants. But you can definitely do little jumps – but most of the jumping you’ll want to do is off natural hits and ollies over rollers.
No way! This board has practically no tail. You’re setback pretty much to the tail almost – at least that’s what it feels like. I was able to go into switch and then quickly out of it – but really not one for riding or landing switch.
You can for sure. Not what it’s made for again – but it’s doable I guess – I didn’t attempt it!
Really fun board if you want something different to take out on those slushy days and just have a cruisey fun time. Limited in other conditions – not a one board quiver but a fun spring time addition for laying down slushy carves, nose and tail presses and getting low on those euro carves – if you can!
