This fish floats! Travis Rice's Orca is a directional, all-mountain/freeride board with a medium-stiff flex designed for intermediate and advanced riders. This board features Lib's C2X profile with stable lengthened camber underfoot and shortened rocker between your feet to make turn initiation smoother and more fluid, and help you float in powder. Travis and Mervin will be donating a portion of the sale of each Orca snowboard to the Orca Conservancy in support of their efforts to prevent the extinction of the Salish Sea's Southern Resident Killer Whales.

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.
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.
Sintered Knife Cut Base - 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.
