Snowboard Notes #1: Capita and the Porn Form

Ah, so yeah people listen up it’s about time i stated blargin’ a little about the snow slash-ayin’ side of life. I’m watching friends receive their proform stocking all shipped with care. Plans are being formulated for an all out over 30 shred session at Stratton Mountain during Drunksgiving and most importantly: it’s getting cold. Now I need to hurry up and make a donation to certain doghouse so I can be in good keyholder standing when the indoor skate time comes around. But, until I get off my ass and get the Swede some cash for skatelite, I’ll start planning for some snow. A few things popped up worth sharing.

God Bless Capita!
Capita started shipping their horrorscope FK decks last week to the C-3 Super pros. While questioning the in-house Capita gimp he let me know that “Our little thing we do since we were all shop kids once. Roots.” Very cool of them and you can find the adventures all logged over yonder. Apparently the proform got kicked over to being a pron form. Now you got shops kids doing shit like this? If Capita is lucky they’ll get their own brand of protesting. Becasue that’s what snowboarding needs more soccer moms putting up “Poach snowboarding” signs because naked photos were taken. Before I get in trouble for starting the pacific North West version of Boobie Gate let me be perfectly clear on this: there is no connection to the naked photos and the “horror” graphics. Additionally, I don’t give a fuck if you are offended. OK, that being said lets move on!

OK, I lied that’s really all I felt worth putting up and maybe I was a little aggressive in that last paragraph. But, what’s done is done. You can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube y’know? The point being is the Capita (like so many other companies) is looking out for the shop kids and in this day and age it’s nice to these companies still look out for shop kids. OK, quit staring at the two bozos and the chick on my right and get back to work. Seriously, get back to work.

  1. I plopped the horrorscope review up on my site today. I don’t really know about the whole capita being the only one that takes care of shop kids. I could go down the line of companies that support me for being a shop kid and it’d be pretty big.

  2. Nah, that wasn’t my point… “The point being is the Capita (like so many other companies) is looking out for the shop kids and in this day and age it’s nice to these companies still look out for shop kids.”I reference “other companies” who also look out for shop kids in this day and age. The ultra-pro-form shop deal or custom proform I think is still fairly new to the last five years. Ride doing teh budweiser binder etc.

  3. This is something that “we” the dudes at C3 have done since our days way back when at Northwave. We did special KJ boots, Mikey binders, one off color Bakoda gloves all thru the years. Then when we started up C3, took that mentality with us. Thru the years we’ve done late release Capita’s for shop kids along with Unions. No claims on who did it first, we just do it.
