THERMO PRESSURE FUSION SYSTEM MAGNESIUM BASALT CARBON CONSTRUCTION

Mike Olson never stops experimenting with composites and shapes, this year he came up with some amazing construction tweaks and improvements we just had to share with the world. Our new MBC construction perfectly blends the best characteristics of epoxy: durability and liveliness with the best performance characteristics of polyester: flex and dampness. The addition of magnesium fiber improves our overall impact resistance and the carbon composite stringer exactly matches the flex of a new high performance polyester and holds it for the life of the board. The world’s best surfboard construction just got even better!

PICKUP STICK MID SIZED MULTI-PURPOSE WAVE CATCHING PERFORMANCE FUN BOARD “The prettiest 9 footer that is 7’ long!” - Mike Olson The Pickup Stick “mid size” shape perfectly fills the gap between a shortboard and a longboard. A smooth flowing shape and rocker combined with a single to double to flat tail contour for high performance shortboard style maneuvers and a concave for nose riding lift, refined but forgiving rails and great volume all add up to non stop wave catching performance/fun. Whether you are first timer looking for a board that will be easy to progress on, a weekend warrior that is looking for maximum wave time or if you are a ripper looking for that “transition period” mid sized fun/performance option that takes an average day and makes it special, the Pickup Stick is always a perfect choice.

“A timeless shape that will always have a place in your quiver.” - Jay Larson The ultimate travel board! Lib Tech’s durable watertight construction combined with this extremely versatile shape make this an incredible travel board… you can count on it getting to where you are going in one piece and it maximizes the fun no matter what the conditions; soft, roping, barreling, big, small or anything in between.

“You will constantly be picking it up because it is so versatile and fun… it works in all conditions and picks up every wave you want to ride.” - Pete Saari

V3 STEALTH GREAT ALL AROUND HYBRID DESIGN FOR JUST ABOUT ANY TYPE OF SURFER “ The V3-STEALTH… is blatantly based off the overwhelming popularity of the V3-Rocket. Inspired by input and requests from team riders with the desire to extend the feel of the V3 into a board built around a more traditional nose template, and the resulting forward drive, swing weight and visuals of a standard shortboard. Years ago we took the original “OG-Rocket” and added a standard nose, to create the “Stealth” model, thus Stealth-ly hiding a hybrid board into traditional forward outline. Today, we are doing it again, except with the V3. Technically, we added length, and rocker, to the nose and pulled the outline in accordingly. The tail has more pronounced, fluted wings and a more radical “Rocket” diamond at the end. The deeper, wings add grip and control, by reducing surface area, and the flutes allow the rail to permeate the surface, as well as reduce the rail volume, for more precise and permeating carving. The bottom still contains the V3’s healthy amount of concave, adding radical lift and enabling the conservative, straight centerline rocker to glide over flats and drive down the line. The opposing-ly hyper curved rail rocker (which creates the deep concave) allows the surf to turn freely when the board is rolled onto a rail. Fast, vertical and in the pocket surfing, at high speeds, in even marginal conditions. For the new LIB x ...LOST version we have added yet another boost to the entire package, and integrated “Radiating-4” Channels through the tail rocker. Unlike classic parallel channels, these “R-4” Channels are fast and free in smaller to average surf, because they are toed in to work with the fins and encourage radical turning and create drive in tight radius arcs. Classic parallel placed channels go very fast down the line and feel great in powerful, driving surf (but tend to be sticky and track in quick turns). The two outer channels are aligned parallel with the front fins, angled towards the nose and the two inner channels are toed in a touch less than the outer two (similar to running inner quad fins with less toe than the front fins). All four fins angled to the same vanishing point up front, and radiate outward, with the fins, back through the tail. By simultaneously cutting through the curve in the tail rocker, as they radiating out the tail, the “R-4C “ provide the sensation of added grip and drive, gaining speed through turns. Channels are fun fast and exciting… and these ones excel in not only clean waves, but also liven up even soft and sloppy surf. “ ~ Matt Biolos

The Short Round bridges the gap between easy riding “cheater” boards and the HP shortboard. The speed comes from a low entry rocker and wide-ish nose, with a forward wide point and generous concave throughout. The performance comes from a moderate, but not flipped up, tail rocker, a double concave through the fins and the same sort of modern bump squash tail that you would find on a typical contest style, small wave HP shortboard. All combined, it doesn’t look like anything fancy and there are no gimmicks, but sometimes less is more, and there’s a lot packed into this little board.

sizes

5’4” W18.88” TH2.20” (25.00 cl) NEW!

This board features a concave bottom that transitions to vee in the tail. The wide outline makes for easy wave catching and down the line glide and stability. The concave bottom adds lift and increased rail curve, which allows radical top to bottom surfing. The straight rail line & vee in the tail keep the board moving forward and hold in during hard carving maneuvers.

6’0” W20.50” TH2.50” (34.00 cl)

Fast and foiled for on rail surfing, but full and forgiving for sub-par and sloppy surf. Refinements during the PRIME and WT comps have led us to this board that grovels well but is still a true high-performance board. It is fast becoming a go to fave for team riders looking for an edge in small wave contests, as well as the local crew around So-Cal, who are always ready for something new.
