  • Lib Tech pioneered the all terrain rocker revolution with the award winning Skate Banana and TRS C2 banana snowboarding specific geometries, ending over 20 years of mis-applied tip-to-tail ski cambers and improving snowboard performance for every level of rider from beginner to pro.

  • In art and snowboarding, we come to know who we are, and we lose ourselves at the same time. Both give a sense of a reality that is altered from common perception. Lib Techs artist program has grown with snowboarding over the past three decades with artists and snowboarders like Jamie Lynn, Mike Perillo, Quincy Quigg, and Nick Russian producing graphics that set the standard for high art in snowboarding; windows into parallel worlds where women are blue and skeletons wear sunglasses. Where gravity has less pull. Lib Tech. Original Art. Handmade snowboards.

  • GREEN SINCE BACK WHEN ONLY HIPPIES CARED!

    Mervin has been building snowboards every day for over 26 years. From the very beginning we have always tried to be as environmentally conscious as possible with both our work environment and the materials and processes we use. Nearly Canadian Kraftsmen need healthy work and play environ-ments so they can achieve maximum shred.

    We use soy-based elastomer sidewalls instead of toxic abs.

    Our basalt fiber is additive-free & less toxic than conventional fiberglass.

    Our wood sawdust is recycled as a soil additive and scrap wood is donated as kindling.

    We use non-petroleum based bio-plastics made from castor beans.Beans are a magical fruit!

    We DONT use any cancer-causing toxic automotive lacquer clearcoats.Cancer can result in de
