The new Lib Tech Bowl is a magically fast Horsepower shape: short, lower rocker, straighter rail line with a speedy thumb tail and a high performance nose for aggressive modern surfing and acceleration in small to medium waves. Grovelation!
The new Lib Tech Bowl MBC construction perfectly blends the best characteristics of epoxy: durability and liveliness. As well as the best performance characteristics of polyester: flex and dampness. In addition, the magnesium fiber improves your 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. Consequently, the world’s best surfboard construction just got even better!
We love surfing and surfboards but… traditional surf construction is delicate and the build process is toxic and unhealthy… but we knew there had to be a better way. So 12 years ago, Mike Olson set out to make a stronger, longer lasting and more environmentally friendly surfboard. He applied his 30 plus years of experience handcrafting and riding high performance composite surf, skate and snowboards to the task and in the process he completely rewrote the book on surfboard construction. Each of the 31 pieces used to construct our ECO IMPACTO surfboards are new materials to the surf industry. As a result our unique Thermo Pressure Fusion Process creates an amazingly durable and high performance surf structure that lifts your surfing to new heights. Above all it is completely environmentally friendly freeing your mind for focus on your surfing.
