Founders Jason Brown and Blue Montgomery had a simple idea “It’s ours.” a desire for a snowboarding company ran by riders for riders, seeing a lack of creativity and innovation from the major companies at the time they decided to take up that mission themselves and in 2000 Capita was born. just a group of riders who desired a brand that reflected their own unique style, a style continues to propel the brand forward today.
Starting out small with minimum resources didn’t slow Capita Snowboards lofty dreams by collaborating with industry famous artists and designing wild-looking Snowboards each with individual styles, the business quickly grew out of its native Seattle and into the world-famous Elan Factory in Austria. Eventually buying the Elan Factory in 2012 when it fell into bankruptcy, retaining its machines and employees and working with them to create The Mothership, a leading snowboard manufacturing facility dedicated sustainability and maximizing shredding potential.
Having built a team known only as the ‘Defenders of Awesome’ a group each with their own signature styles allows Capita the freedom to build, tweak and redesign boards for every type of rider out there. Potentially one of their most well-known riders and an S2AS favourite is the one-foot king himself Scott Stevens, a man with a skate-inspired style so unique it continues to blow minds every year.
