Lib Tech 2022 Orca Snowboard B-Grade - 150
Not your gutless fish. Travis has juiced up this Jackson Hole resort slasher into an apex all terrain tech shred predator. A long floaty nose combined with a powerful poppy contact maximizing short radius “Whale Tail Technology”. A tight 7m trench gougin sidecut. Wide enough to allow you to really put it on a hardpack rail with no toe drag and float pillows like a dream but still narrow enough to be your daily driver all season long. Take it to AK, drop BC pillow stacks or blow minds at the home resort all season. A mammal to eat all fish. TR. Award winning!
VOLUME SHIFTED, RIDE THIS BOARD 3-6 CM SHORTER THAN YOUR NORMAL BOARD.
- DREAM DIRECTIONAL SHAPE AND CONTOUR FOR WHAT TRAVIS CALLS FUN
- APEX FREERIDE POW RIPPER MEETS RESORT SLASHING DAILY DRIVER
- FLOATY NOSE, TIGHT SIDECUT, MAXIMUM POWER TAIL
Travis and Mervin will be donating a portion of the sale of each Orca snowboard to the www.orcaconservancy.org in support of their efforts to prevent the extinction of the Salish Sea’s Southern Resident Killer Whales. #betheirvoice
BOARD ART BY: Mike Parillo (@mikeparillo)
Apex predators of our Oceans. This incredible Sentient being, with the gift of echo location and no recorded attack ever on human beings, must have more happening than meets the eye. There have been many witnessed attacks of moose and elk that swim between islands yet this divine cetacean appears to exist on a level where it considers human to be a friend and partner. It is said that whales carry a copy of the Akashic record of humanity within their DNA. Perhaps this is why they seem so excited to spend time in the vicinity of people in the wild.
"23 Chromosome pairs we Homo Sapiens possess. Yet every other Ape and Hominid before us, up to just a few hundred thousand years ago, had 24. Perhaps the greatest mystery of our species is what happened with the missing link!?" ~ Travis
What are B-Grades?
Every board we make is handcrafted. Occasionally, we build boards that don't quite live up to our strict cosmetic quality standards. We call these B-Grade beauties. B-Grade beauties have mild cosmetic imperfections that DO NOT impact the board structure, performance, or longevity. B-Grades come with the full factory warranty. We can't guarantee the specific cosmetic oddity that you will be getting, but we can guarantee the amazing price and handcrafted performance.
