What you're looking at here is the ultimate apex resort ripping, pow pillow blasting shred stick featuring pinnacle carbon construction and eco-friendly tech like recycled PET plastic bottles and Eco-Sub Bio Beans. With a long floaty nose and a powerful, poppy "Whale Tail Technology", riding the Apex Orca is not unlike a surfboard on a wave when it comes to pow, yet you also get a tight, trench gouging sidecut that lets you really dig in on hardpack. This fish is tough enough to handle any run you huck it down. The real question is... are YOU tough enough?

Control / Precision / Float
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 Bio Beans Topsheet - Using a new earth-friendly, bio-plastic top skin made from beans that feature the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any top sheet in the industry.
Eco Sublimated Sintered Base - Built to be fast and tough. This highly durable base has excellent wax retention thanks to its high porosity.
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.
