The Skunk Ape is a directional twin, all-mountain/freeride board with a medium-firm flex designed for intermediate and advanced riders. This board is ideal for big guys who ride the whole mountain. It features Lib's C2 profile with rocker in the middle and camber underfoot providing a floaty and controlled ride wherever you go. A tri-ax/bi-ax fiberglass layup combined with Lib Tech's innovative use of Basalt gives this board durability and gives you a lightweight and smooth feel.

C2 Rocker/Camber Profile - Combining central rocker for edge hold and float, with powerful camber towards the tip and tail for stability, pop, and control. Mervin's intricately balanced C2 profile is tuned to the exact specification of Travis Rice for all-terrain destruction.
Control / Precision / Float
Horsepower Construction (HP) - 60% Aspen, 40% Paulownia. In addition, the tip/tail have been slimmed down to make rotations easier.
Bi-axial Fiberglass - This 2-way fiber orientation is engineered to provide maximum snap while decreasing chatter.
Tri-axial Fiberglass - This 3-way fiber orientation is engineered to increase snap and decrease vibrations for a smoother, more stable ride.
Basalt Fiber Reinforcement - Basalt fiber has strength properties much higher than fiberglass and better damping properties for a smooth ride. Basalt is a non-toxic, natural element that provides a better ride. Plus, it’s easier to recycle and is safer for humans.
Eco-Sub Poly Top Sheet - Sounds technical right? It just means the top sheet is made from sublimated polyester material that's great for vibrant yet durable graphics, which means a long lasting image.
Eco Sublimated TNT Base - Perfect for beginners and park riders, this base keeps you moving fast and is easy to repair.
Mervin Made: EnvironMENTAL Construction - Core materials are sources from fast-growing, renewable forest products. Water-based solvents used for cleansing instead of petrochemical-based solvents. All wood sawdust is recycled as a soil additive, plus scrap wood is donated to a local Mood Wood company that packages it as kindling and resells it.
Handbuilt in the USA - Every Lib Tech board is handmade by snowboarders with jobs in the USA.
1 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 1 year from the time of purchase. Warranty includes structural defects only and DOES NOT cover impact damage, abuse, misuse or normal wear and tear.
Magne-Traction Serrated Edges - Strategically placed bumps that create added contact points along each edge for increased grip and control in all conditions. Turn ice into powder.
Birch Internal Sidewalls - Rugged, lightweight, vertical end grain Birch internal sidewalls add pop and durability.
UHMW Sintered Sidewalls - A Lib Tech innovation that is twice as sintered as most industry sidewalls. This ultra high molecular weight (UHMW) material increases durability, response and control for easier riding.
