Questions answered by Capita’s Product Development and US Marketing Manager Sean Tedore

To what degree are you emphasizing camber shape and core profiles in your lineup?

Sean Tedore

This is a big part of our design process.  Every board features a custom camber profile that compliments the overall design of the board.  At this point I feel that camber profiling is a model-by-model process that can't be lumped into categories.  Every board has particular needs and a unique camber profile is a must for optimal performance.

Are you cooking up any new materials or construction techniques?
For 2013/14 we have developed a variety of materials and processes.  Our A2 Core is a uniquely blended ply core that encompasses Flax fibers and a variety of woods to create one of the lightest, dampest and strongest cores to date.  To increase pop and response we also developed new pre-cured carbon beams.  Placed in the tip and tail these ridged pre-cured carbon beams help you ollie higher and provide tons of control in any situation.

What themes are you seeing for graphics?
Blue said you can expect, "A wilderness of weirdness."
