The Capita Spring Break Resort Twin is a new all-mountain freestyle snowboard that is resort riding perfection. The Resort Twin excels on groomers, holds an edge on icy terrain, and completely dominates the park, all while delivering the fun and creativity of the Spring Break brand.
Here is my in-depth review of the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin. This board is my daily driver for the 2024 season, so I will be updating this review often.

For this review, I rode the 154cm Capita Spring Break Resort Twin. For sizing information, I am 5′ 6″, 142 pounds, and have a size nine boot.
Flex: The flex is rated at a medium 5 out of 10. The Resort Twin has a playful, pressable flex that still feels in control at all times while carving. I found the board to be stiffer torsionally than it is longitudinally. I cover this in more detail below here.
If you are looking for a well-rounded all-mountain binding, go with the Union Force. If you will be spending the majority of your time in the park, go with the Union Ultra bindings.
For this review, I primarily used my white 2023 Union Ultra bindings. The colors matched beautifully, and the flex patterns worked well together.
The Reason I Bought This: I wanted a true twin resort board that carved well and could hold its own in the park. This board also won me over with its epic graphic, too.
Overall Rating Score: 4.6 out of 5
- It Is Very Versatile – This is a resort-focused snowboard that carves well on groomers, icy conditions, and slush. It’s also exceptional in the terrain park.
- Stable Feeling and Fun to Ride – This is a stable and extremely fun resort board to ride. From the moment I stepped on it, it felt in control and ready for fun. I didn’t want to get off of it.
- Perfect 5/10 Medium Flex – It is pressable. It offers a fantastic level of pop for jumps and offers enough power to carve exceptionally well.
- Massive Pop – The Spring Break Resort Twin board has a hybrid camber profile, which blends the power and precision of traditional camber with the forgiving and easier-to-ride characteristics of a rocker profile. Capita also gave the Resort Twin carbon boosters to increase the level of pop you get from this board.
- Lightweight – This board features a wooden core with carbon features that make it noticeably lighter than other resort-focused boards.
- Fast Base That’s Low Maintenance – The Resort Twin’s base is fast and durable. Additionally, you won’t need to wax it as often as some other resort-focused boards.
Overview of The Capita Spring Break Resort Twin
Here is Capita’s feature overview video for the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin.
Why Did I Buy the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin Snowboard?
I was deciding between buying the Capita Resort Twin or trying the 2024 camber Capita Ultrafear. I decided on the Resort Twin because it looked to be more versatile, and I still have my 2022 Ultrafear to ride whenever I miss it.
Additionally, I wanted something that was brand new for the season, resort-focused, and slightly larger than the park boards I would typically buy. The 154cm Spring Break Resort Twin fit my description perfectly, so I bought it to use as my daily driver for the 2024 season.
The graphics on this board are so eye catching, too. It looks nice with the white and black layout with its bright green sidewalls. I set my white 2023 Union Ultra bindings up on it, took this picture, and couldn’t wait to ride it.
How Does the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin Ride?
Here are the main highlights for what it feels like to ride the Resort Twin.
It’s An All-Mountain Snowboard That Carves Exceptionally Well
The Resort Twin can carve incredibly well. When you first step on this board, you’ll notice it has an exceptional level of edge hold. Capita Gave this board its Radial Sidecut with Deathgrip technology. This special sidecut means the Resort Twin has a traditional sidecut arc that runs the length of the board, with one additional contact point added directly in the center of the arc. If you were to look closely at the edge of this snowboard, it would look like this.
Notice the extra bump in the center of the snowboard’s edge? That extra contact point in the center of the sidecut allows the board to grip better in all conditions, regardless of the type of terrain you are riding in. The extra level of grip allows you to feel in control at all times, so you can ride confidently and improve how you connect your turns without worrying if it’s too icy out.
Is the Resort Twin for the rider who is meticulous with their carves? No.
The Spring Break Resort Twin excels at quicker, tighter turns. This board’s shorter sidecut radius and camber dominant profile make it easier to make tighter, more abrupt turns. The carving abilities of the Resort Twin make it perfect for carving groomers at your favorite resort, cruising through trees, and navigating from feature to feature in the terrain park.
While the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin is capable of making the occasional wider, more precise carve, too, it’s just not its strong suit.
If you’re primarily focused on carving and digging precise, deep trenches at higher speeds, there are better carving-focused boards than the Resort Twin for you to consider. The Resort Twin is intended more for the all-mountain resort rider that wants one board that can do a little bit of everything well and not for the hard charging carver.
Its Base is Fast
Capita gave this board a hybrid “sintruded” base. Capita calls it the Power Drive Base. It was originally formulated for the wider Spring Break Powder Division boards. It combines the speed and durability of a sintered base with the low maintenance characteristics of an extruded base.
I was surprised at how fast the board is, though. I was expecting it to be like a slower extruded base, and it wasn’t. Underfoot, it feels exactly like a sintered base. I wax it just as I would a sintered base, and I’ve had no issues getting speed. It flies through flatter sections and has no issues getting speed between features in the park.
The Flex Is Easy to Nosepress yet Challenging to Butter
The Resort Twin has a medium middle-of-the-road flex that is incredibly easy to nosepress. The playful flex of the board doesn’t take away from how well this board holds an edge while carving, either.
There is an important note about the flex, though.
It’s easier to nose and tailpress than it is to swivel around for butters. This is due to the board having a softer longitudinal flex compared to its torsional flex.
The board’s longitudinal flex, the flex from nose to tail, is softer (rated at 5/10), allowing the board to press easily. However, the board’s torsional flex, the flex pattern from toe to heel, is a little stiffer (rated at 6.5/10), which allows the board to feel stable while you carving.
The more rigid flex pattern from torsionally is a characteristic of the V-shaped carbon boosters Capita added into the nose and tail. It adds power and pop to this board. However, it makes it a little harder to spin around with your butters because it makes it harder to ensure your weight is always uphill.
Buttering can definitely still be done. I just wouldn’t say flatground tricks are a strong suit of this board. It’s more for carving groomers and pressing features in the park.
It’s a Stable Ride Where You Still Feel Some Chatter
Capita added two v-shaped carbon boosters into the nose and tail of this board. These boosters have two primary benefits. They give the board an additional level of pop, and they add some dampening effects. While the dampening is noticed, this board feels more lively than it does damp. At higher speeds, you will notice the tips of this board start to chatter, and those vibrations are felt slightly underfoot.
You can reduce the vibrations you will feel by pairing this snowboard with a pair of bindings that offer some additional dampening properties, like the Union Ultra or Union Force.
For this review, I went with the Union Ultra bindings.
It’s Shines In the Park Too
One of the perks of this board is how well it performs in the park. If you’re like me and spend a lot of time hiking rails and hitting small to medium jumps, the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin will be perfect for you. The carbon added to this board gives it a little extra spring-board-like pop off of jumps, and the flex pattern allows the board to lock into rails easily without overbending or catching.

Here are the things I loved about the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin.
Versatile Enough for Resort and Park Riding
This is a board that can truly do it all well. It carves, jumps, presses, and can still hold an edge. There are few sacrifices with this board. If you are looking for one board that can do most riding very well, this is it.
Offers a Locked-In Yet Playful Feel
A main highlight of the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin is the level of stability it offers while still being fun to ride. This board features Spring Break’s Radial Sidecut with Deathgrip technology. The technology allows the board to feel locked into turns while the board’s unique flex pattern makes it still incredibly playful for freestyle riding.
It Has an Exceptional Level of Pop
Capita gave the Resort Twin two v-shaped carbon boosters in both the nose and tail, along with two beech stringers running through the center of the board. These features work together to give the Resort Twin an extra boosted level of pop. On a scale of massive pop being rated a 5 and weak pop being rated at a 0, I’d rate the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin’s pop at a 4.4.
It’s not so much pop that it will overshoot you or be challenging to learn the timing of, either. The level of pop feels perfect to me. It has an intuitive feel with a little something more to it to help get you in the air.
It Offers Catch-Free Landings
One feature to love about the Resort Twin is that its camber profile makes landing spins easier. If you’re slightly off axis when you land, you can simply revert into place and ride away. This is because of the Resort Twin’s hybrid camber profile makes the contact points of this board feel more forgiving and less catchy when you land. Capita calls this profile their Resort V2 Profile. If you were to look at the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin from the side, its profile would look like this.
The Resort V2 profile has a traditional camber section between your feet with reverse camber sections running outside of the insert packs through the nose and tail. The benefit is that you get the power, pop, and drive of positive camber between your feet with the catch-free landings and the easier-to-carve feeling of reverse camber in the tips. This profile gives the board a very predictable, intuitive feel while still coming packed with a generous amount of pop.
It’s Lightweight and Durable
The Resort Twin Was built with a noticeably lightweight, durable wooden core called Spring Break’s Meta Core. Here is an image of what the construction of the board looks like underneath its topsheet with the three different types of wood and carbon amplifiers.
Its Eye Catching Graphic
What’s not to love about a white snowboard with a spider web on it and bright green sidewalls? This board looks so nice. I loved looking down at my snowboard and seeing this.
There is something to how you ride better when you are on a board that you think looks fresh. You get a little added level of confidence to ride harder or try tricks you may not otherwise try.
Spring Break’s Warranty
Spring Break Snowboards are a collaboration between the owner of Spring Break, Corey Smith, and Capita. Capita now manufactures the entire Spring Break collection of snowboards at the Capita Mothership manufacturing plant in Austria.
Because Capita manufacturers these boards, they offer their standard two-year warranty on all Spring Break snowboards. This warranty covers defects in material or workmanship from the date of purchase. The warranty applies to Capita and Spring Break products purchased from an authorized dealer.
The warranty covers the following:
- Topsheet, base, or sidewall delamination due to manufacturing defect
- Manufacturing defect resulting in cracking on the topsheet, base, sidewall, or edge
- Misaligned, spinning, or stripped inserts
Capita makes registering your board in their warranty database simple. When your board arrives, scan the NFC sticker on your board with your phone and fill out the registration form.
Here are some details about the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin I didn’t like.
No Small or Wide Sizes Yet
This is the first year Capita released the Spring Break Resort Twin. The board is only available in four sizes for the 2024 season. It doesn’t come in any smaller or wider sizes yet.
The Topsheet Chips (If Your Aren’t Careful)
You will want to be careful with this snowboard in the lift lines, as the white topsheet can chip right where it meets the bright green sidewalls. I went to the indoor park on a crowded day, and from other riders running into me in the lift line, I got this chip.
It is worth noting because the green sidewalls of this board really can draw your eyes to any chips or gouges. Fortunately, I was able to secure this back down thanks to some Gorilla Glue gel, and now it looks like this.
That said, all snowboard topsheets will chip if someone accidentally runs their ski or snowboard’s edge into or over your topsheet. With the bright contrasting colors of this board showing chips easily, you might just want to give people a little extra room in the lift lines with this snowboard.
Not the Easiest Board to Butter
While this snowboard is very easy to nose press and tail press, it isn’t as easy to butter with. The board is softer from nose to tail (longitudinally) than it is from edge to edge (torsionally). The stiffer torsional flex makes it challenging to butter because it’s harder to bend the nose towards your toes or towards your heels enough to ensure your weight is always uphill as you swivel your butters around.
The stiffer torsional flex is a characteristic of the Carbon V-tech Amplifiers that Capita and Spring Break added into this snowboard. You can see the carbon amplifiers in the gray portion of this diagram.
The carbon amplifiers offer this snowboard a ton of additional pop and response. However, they make it a little more challenging to spin with your butters.
It isn’t impossible, just harder than you would think.

Who Is the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin a Good Fit For?
The Capita Spring Break Resort Twin is a good fit for anyone who wants a fun and versatile all-mountain freestyle snowboard that can go anywhere and do anything. It’s the perfect do-it-all snowboard for riders who want to be able to cruise down groomed runs, hit the park, and explore all of their favorite resort.
What Experience Level Rider Should Get the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin?
The Capita Spring Break Resort Twin is best suited for intermediate to advanced riders.
Beginners can learn to ride it, too. However, it is more intended for riders who are used to or looking for the power and response of a camber-dominant resort snowboard. If you already have the fundamentals of riding down, you will enjoy this board.

Editor’s Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars for the Capita Spring Break Resort Twin snowboard
The Main Summary
The Capita Spring Break Resort Twin is an extremely versatile and fun snowboard to ride. The Resort Twin can do every type of resort riding very well. It can carve well, it feels stable underfoot, it has an exceptional level of pop for jumps, it’s playful enough to be great at jibbing, and its glide is noticeably fast. If you’re looking for a resort snowboard that can truly do it all, get the Resort Twin and love every second of being on it.
Altogether, the Resort Twin is a phenomenal board at what it is: a resort-focused groomer cruiser that is equally strong in the park for jibbing and jumping.
Is It Great in Powder, Too?
Probably not. While it held up in the 6-8″ of fresh snow I got to ride it in, it isn’t rated for floating well in deep snow. If you will be riding deep snow, consider getting a more directional powder snowboard or take a look at the Spring Break Powder Twin.
Is It Worth It?
Very much so.
The Capita Spring Break Resort Twin is a near-perfect all-mountain freestyle board that’s worth every penny. With the season only just beginning and it already selling out of some sizes, I can’t be the only one who thinks so.
If this board sounds interesting and it is still available in your size, I’d recommend acting fast before it is gone.

What Is the Spring Break Snowboard Brand’s Connection to Capita Snowboards?
Corey Smith, the owner and founder of the Spring Break Snowboards brand, was a Capita professional snowboarder from 2004 until 2008. Since then, Corey has been contributing to the art direction of Capita’s snowboard designs. Corey is even the creative mind behind the art direction of Capita’s most popular snowboard, the Capita DOA.
In 2010, Corey Smith originally created Spring Break Snowboards as an artistic line of handmade powder-specific snowboards. The goal of Spring Break Snowboards was to rekindle the original spirit of snowboarding—a spirit characterized by boundless creativity and sheer enjoyment.
Here is a video of Corey explaining why he started Spring Break Snowboards in his own words.
Spring Break’s snowboards quickly became popular as they were an alternative to the mundane, mass-produced boards that everyone was riding at their local resort. Spring Break became a creative canvas that riders could use to paint their individuality and distinctive style on the hill.
In 2013, Spring Break officially joined forces with Capita snowboards in order to scale up the production and the overall quality of their snowboards. Capita and Spring Break created a strategic partnership together that afforded Spring Break access to Capita’s cutting-edge manufacturing facilities to help ensure the creation of snowboards that met the highest quality standards.
The collaboration between Spring Break and Capita still exists today. The Spring Break Resort Twin is the collaboration’s first resort-focused board.
