Lib Tech is a collective of creative board sport dreamers who have eliminated any barriers between us and actualizing the dream. A lot more than the obvious goes into every board they build: The belief that anything is possible. The experience to know what works. The enthusiasm and determination to make it happen.
With the Orca, Dagmar, E-Jack Knife, and Skate Banana as submissions at our inaugural STOMP Summit in Aspen, Lib Tech proved that they are manufacturers of some of the world’s best boards, or as they call them, dream boards.
Orcas are known as apex predators and Lib Tech's new Travis Rice-backed board devours freeride terrain, particularly pow, tight trees, or both at once. It comes in a single size: 153. But this short and wide directional deck packs a lot of power in its small profile. A long nose and wide waist float well, while a tight sidecut allows for railing quick turns. This C2-cambered deck is adept inbounds and out. Take it for a swim in the deep and let it breach.
Sizes: 151, 154, 157, 157MW, 160
Donning both his artwork and namesake, the Jamie Lynn Dagmar is a new all-terrain board ready to handle what your local resort has to offer. Built around Mervin's C2 hybrid camber profile, and featuring a deep, trench gouging sidecut, the Dagmar is confident in pow and groomers alike, delivering with precision and ease. With its medium flex pattern, this directional freestyle deck doesn't hesitate to spend plenty of time in the park, either. It's a Jamie board that almost all riders can appreciate, on any day.
E-Jack KnifeMSRP: $599.95
Sizes: 154, 157, 159, 159W, 162, 162W
Built with Lib Tech's powerful Horsepower construction and designed to meet the all-terrain demands of Eric Jackson, the E-Jack Knife is an aggressive deck that will handle equally aggressive terrain, all with a freestyle mindset. With a directional shape built around Mervin's C3, camber-dominant profile, and featuring a mild taper, this is a stiff, hard charger that wants to be ridden fast, whether ripping pow at the local resort or sending booters in the backcountry.
Skate BananaMSRP: $499.95
Sizes: 145N, 148N, 151N, 152, 153W, 154, 156, 156W, 159, 159W, 162W, 165W
The Skate Banana has built a lasting reputation as a go-to twin-tipped, playful board, fit for everyone from the first-timer to the seasoned veteran. Its original Banana profile, which features a predominantly rockered outline, made for an easy ride while still providing plenty of performance in terms of carving, jibbing, and even floating in pow. There's a reason the Skate Banana continues to be a fan favorite, and its fun-first personality makes it ideal for a rider with the same intent.
This past spring, TransWorld SNOWboarding hosted the inaugural STOMP Summit. With Aspen as the venue, STOMP set out to provide an engaging platform for brands, retailers, and media to interact, offering each the opportunity to experience and understand this season’s most sought after gear firsthand, on the mountain. Featuring products from the brands in attendance, every item has received its chance to shine on-hill, as we took over one of the world’s most iconic resorts.
