  • Our Take: Defending Awesome since 2011 the DOA returns as one of the most versatile boards in our line-up, and coming in at 420 bucks makes it a must have for anyone who rides everywhere from the rope tow to the rock garden. Camber is king and is the most effective camber profile for holding an edge, cracking ollies and simply destroying everything in its path. The blended contact points make this board super easy to ride since it makes it harder to catch an edge, making this board exceptional at spinning off lips and technical rail tricks. This is the most popular board in our line amongst our AM team and REP riders because of its versatility, as well as our PRO riders like Dustin Craven and Kevin Backstrom who take this thing everywhere from the slushy summer slopes of Mt. Hood to the nipple deep powder of the Japanese Backcountry.
  • Rider Profile: Someone looking for a quiver killer, a do-it-all board that can ride any terrain you put in front of it. A rider who values the ease of progression and wants something inexpensive that will fuel his progression in freestyle snowboarding. Someone who wants an all-mountain board that is easy to ride but will support any level of snowboarding a human can possibly achieve.
