CAPiTA takes a look back on the snowboarding career and art of Tina Basich including Tina's Warrior artworks, inspired by her daughter Addison's battle with scoliosis, that feature on the New CAPiTA x Tina Basich Warrior Series Ltd.
From the CAPiTA desk:
CAPiTA Snowboards is proud to partner with a true snowboarding legend to introduce the Tina Basich Warrior Series Ltd.
From first generation contest podiums, to first descents in Alaska, Tina Basich was one of the originals helping to form what could be of snowboarding as it exploded onto tv screens and into the mainstream in the 1990s.
Tina had a legendary 20 year pro snowboard career including multiple X Games medals, countless magazine interviews, MTV appearances, and the first ever women’s pro model snowboard.
Tina’s personal artwork had always been featured on the top and base graphics of her pro models throughout her career, and now 20 years later we are proud to introduce the CAPiTA Tina Basich Warrior Series. This board’s deeply personal graphics showcase Tina’s Warrior art project which represents her daughter Addison’s battle through her life journey with Scoliosis.
The Tina Basich Warrior Series is available in 143, 147 and 151cm sizes and based on the CAPiTA Navigator shape.
