The Shortround bridges the gap between easy riding “cheater” surfboards and the high performance shortboard. The speed comes from a low entry rocker and wide-ish nose, with a forward wide point and generous concave throughout. The performance comes from a moderate, but not flipped up, tail rocker, a double concave through the fins and the same sort of modern bump squash tail that you would find on a typical contest style, small wave HP shortboard. All combined, it doesn’t look like anything fancy and there are no gimmicks, but some times less is more, and there’s a lot packed into this little surfboard.

“A skatey speedster with a high performance hook. Fast and flat, but without the fat.” ~ Matt Biolos

La Shortround fait le lien entre les planches “faciles à surfer” et les shortboards haute performance. Cette board puise sa vitesse dans un rocker plus bas, un nose plus large et un concave prononcé. Tandis que son tail rocker modéré, mais pas inversé, son double concave sous les dérives et son squash tail, que vous retrouvez habituellement sur des planches haute performance de contest pour petites vagues, lui donnent toute son énergie. Cette combinaison évite le superflu pour vous offrir le meilleur.

Das Shortround schlägt die Brücke zwischen einfach zu surfenden “Cheater”-Boards und dem anspruchsvollen HP Shortboard. Der leichte Rocker und die breite Nose sorgen zusammen mit dem großzügigen Concave für die nötige Geschwindigkeit, während der moderate Tail Rocker, das Double Concave und das moderne Bump Squash Tail Stabilität geben. Das sieht vielleicht nicht nach viel aus, doch wie wir alle wissen, ist weniger oft mehr. Und das Shortround ist das beste Beispiel dafür!

La Shortround acorta la distancia entre las tablas facilonas y las de alto rendimiento. Su velocidad viene dada por un rocker poco marcado y un nose más ancho, con el punto de máxima anchura adelantado y un cóncavo generoso en todo su conjunto. Su rendimiento viene definido por un tail con rocker moderado, un doble cóncavo en la zona de las quillas y el mismo tail moderno con forma squash abultada, que encontrarás en la típica tabla de competición de alto rendimiento para olas pequeñas. Todo su conjunto no da la apariencia de un diseño increíble sacado del sombrero de un mago, pero a veces, menos es más, y esta tabla viene repleta de prestaciones escondidas.

    The Short Round looks great. When are you going to have some on this site for sale? I’m holding my wallet right now waiting for it to be available!

  • Bobby Gunderson

    Ditto to Leo. When is it available?
    -Bobby G.

  • Leo Azambuja

    I live in Hawaii, and the shipping from smaller surf shops (where this board is already available) is very prohibitive. But I wouldn’t mind paying your shipping charges, or charges from Tactics skate/surf shop. Both are reasonable. Anyway, if you can let me know when, even a ballpark estimate, you’re going to have this board available I’ll know whether to hold off on a new board and wait for the new Lib Tech Short Round. It looks sick, thank you guys for innovating. And BTW, I already have a Ringer, and it’s a rocket.

  • iggy

    i’m looking for a 6’0″ Short Round – can i order it?

  • Martins Sleja

    Are you planing make these in size 6.2 also?

  • Robert Popp

    Hey Libsters, in summer I mostly ride a PU wide quad, 5’6” x 21 3/4 x 2 5/8 Vol. 34.6. I weight about 80 kg, intermediate level. Looking for something with more performance and a little less volume which also holds 5-6″ waves a little steeper…would you recommend? Size 5’10” or even shorter…was also thinking about the puddle jumper – but I think, this is more what I’m looking for. Best from Berlin!

    P.S. where to order?

  • Ted Schatz

    Would really like to know this answer also. 38cL is my perfect volume. This would go perfectly with my 5’9″ puddle jumper.

  • Hi Leo –
    We just got a few in stock. We currently have 5’6″, 5’10” and 6’0″ available.

  • Hi Bobby –
    Happy to let you know we have a FEW available, 5’6″, 5’10” and 6’0″ currently on hand in limited quantities.

  • Hi Leo –
    We are able to ship now, but Tactics should also have boards in short order and those guys rock!

  • Hi Iggy –
    We just got a few 6’0″ in stock! Thanks.

  • Hi Martins –
    We do not currently have any plans to build the 6’2″. We originally were going to build this size, but we are unable to keep up with demand for the existing sizes. Hopefully we will be able to expand to include the 6’2″ down the road, but we have no firm dates yet. My apologies. Thanks!

  • Hi Robert –
    The Short Round is a higher performance board, as compared to the PJ. The PJ is wider and thicker, a little better for smaller waves. If you want a shorter board with more volume, I would recommend the PJ. If you want a more aggressive shape, for bigger waves, the Short Round is a better choice. Keep in mind, if you want to get to the volume you are currently surfing, you’ll be on a 6’0″ on the Short Round (Vol 34). I hope this helps.
    We just received some 5’6″, 5’10” and 6’0″ in limited quantities.

  • Hi Ted –
    Sorry to say we don’t have firm plans for the 6’2″ at this point. Sorry about that!

  • Robert Popp

    Actually I want a little less volume and go more aggressive- because I have my Summer groveler. So I guess go for SR 5’10”

  • Teddy Allen

    so stoked you guys are varying your shapes…..can’t wait to add these to my quiver in 2016! Count on it. (any word on upcoming models so I can wait before potentially buying a different board???) Love the work you guys are doing and love to support you!

  • Aidan

    I bought a Ringer 6″2 for a trip I took to Nica last spring. I loved it. Sold it there. I want to either buy another Ringer or thinking maybe a SR. I’m 1.82m and 80kg. Thoughts on the difference between how the two boards ride? I currently ride a 7s Superfish (6’0, 20 1/4, 2 5/8th), but miss the agility of the Ringer. Intermediate surfer. 8ft at OB in SF is a big day for me. Mostly surfing California waves.

  • jsea.lbc

    I notice that the PU versions of short rounds are about a litre and a half more in volume for each size. Could you explain the reasoning around that? is it construction etc….

  • GNU

    we use our own unique construction–so you can ride the same size you would in the …Lost version, and get the Lib version with slightly less volume and get the same performance out of it.

    Our top secret materials are a bit more buoyant than your average surfboard.

  • Christian LaCuesta

    you guys going to make a 5′ 8″ anytime soon?

  • Peter

    Hi, i”m trying to get my first short board. Been riding a 7″4 everyday for about a year and half in Cali. Im very fit and 5″6 133ibs. Because my brother started with a v3 rocket by lost, he recommended me to get this over the pj. Not sure if i should get the 5″4 (when its back in stock) or a 5″6

  • snkrhd

    any chances to get it in indo?
    i cant order it from here … 100% import tax and custom ‘fees’ will make it unaffordable

  • Henry Morrissey

    ya, I cant find the 5’8″ in any shops either

  • Fist*it

    idk when they’ll be available again, but I ordered a 5’8″ on here 4/5/16 and got it in the mail (SoCal) two days later. I think you just have to keep checking it. I’ve been looking for a 5’7″ PJ since then, but haven’t seen one.

    I’ve only got a couple surfs on my SR, its super fun! But not the groveler I was hoping it would be.

  • Mario

    Hello, I am medium average surfer. I am from the Basque Country and we usually surf beach breaks. I am 1,80 cm and 82kg. I do not know if I should buy a 5’8 or 5’10. Please Help! Thoughts on what I should buy?

  • Timothy Aghan

    Alternate processes can sometimes be more Floaty than traditional PU boards. Do you find this to be the case with your process? For example 34 CL’s may feel closer to 35 CLs in some epoxy boards.

  • Fist*it

    I saw somewhere LT said its about a liter and a half difference. I also saw them say its about 10% more floaty. The former doesn’t really make sense as a blanket statement. The latter doesn’t really make sense to me as my 5’10” SR feels about as buoyant as my other 31L boards. I’d say don’t worry about it too much.

  • Timothy Aghan

    Thanks man, I bought the 6’0″ Short Round and it does feel slightly more floaty than a 34CL Al Merrick I own. Which is what I wanted. Love this new board too… Still not super excited about the fin boxes but easily overlooked considering the board performs very well.


    Have you had a chance to make some 6’2 Short Rounds for some 6’2 surfers wearing wetsuits? I see from the comments below that the Lib boards float a bit better than PU… is there a volume calculator online? Also, any plans to make the Quiver Killer?

  • Timothy Aghan

    Realwatersports has the 6’2″ listed for sale. I think I read somewhere that they would have 6’2″‘s ready by June. I’m not sure how to deal with their volume claims in comparison to PU boards. I have the 6’0″ short round (love it by the way) and it does feel true to 34 CL’s to me.

  • B

    Why do some of the boards come with a black stringer line and some do not?

  • Stefano van Tuijl

    How heavy are you?

  • Stefano van Tuijl

    Do you recommend the 510 of 60 for somebody with 85KG?

  • Timothy Aghan

    I’m 170 LBS so about 77 KGs. The 6’0 works out great for me, I’m sure I would like the 5’10 as well however I’m really tall (6’3″ 190 cm) so I prefer to have less parts of me dragging in the water.

  • Fist*it

    I called the guys at LT to ask this question when my board did not come with the stringer. The rep sighed and said the tech lead added the stringer without telling anyone. That is why there is no marketing info about it. He assured me it makes no structural of performance difference, but was added for aesthetics. I like mine without the stringer.

  • Fist*it

    FYI – Fin configuration makes a huge difference on this board. I was running it with a set of FCS SF-4 Stretch Quads and thought it was really finicky and not that fun. Then I switched to the Biolos FCS GMB-5 thrusters and all I can say is this is my new favorite hybrid for fat waves. Tons of drive, yet loads of controlled pivot.

  • I’m not sure who you spoke to, but we have two female customer service reps here at Mervin and those are the only two employees who answer our phone lines. We added the stringer because it gives the board a feel that is more similar to a traditional polyester board, not for aesthetic reasons. Mike Olson, founder and head of our surf program, is always ahead of the curve with new materials and innovation and he was stoked on the stringer and the qualities it added to the board, so we are now using it on ALL Lib Tech surfboards.

  • Jason

    Wish I would have known this a few days ago I just bought one out of the rack a my local surf shop.

  • Fist*it

    LOL I’m pretty stoked on the lt tech too. Not sure why the guy who answered the phone at Mervins explained the stringer this way?

  • We don’t have any guys answering our phones, so I couldn’t tell you..but our apologies for any inconvenience/misinformation. It could’ve been a past employee.

  • Timothy Aghan

    Have you tried using the FCS GMB-5 as a quad, if so what do you think?

  • Joe Hudgins

    I need the 6’0 to be in stock please!!

  • Fist*it

    I haven’t. I will try them when there’s more surf and let you know. A friend said the numbster made his SR quad setup snappy as a slim jim.

  • mootrail

    I had a similar experience and was told the same thing along the lines of aesthetics or cosmetics. Spoke to someone at Cleanline and finally got the true story. My Extension Ramp came with a stringer and I was baffled because at the time (a few months ago), all the boards in the shop and online were stringerless.

  • sickpants

    Hi lib tech! i have a 5″11 lib x lost puddle jumper and it I’m having a great time on it. I also bought a 6.0 lib x lost short round that i am waiting to take out when the bigger waves arrive here. But i have a crack in short round at the bottom just where the rail meets the bottom. when pushing a finger near the crack the board is softer so the crack is through the top layer. I want to fix it before i take it out in the water. what is your recommendation for method of fixing a cracked top layer. thank you!

  • sickpants

    i patched up the board with a micro phixdoctor kit, worked just fine.

  • Andre

    What fin setups do you guys recommend for this board?

  • Timothy Aghan

    Why doesn’t the stringer just show through construction naturally? Mine has the stringer line too, but that’s clearly a graphic.

  • Timothy Aghan

    I’m not buying it, I don’t believe there’s an actual stringer in these boards.

  • CenCalSeth

    Do you have any plans to ever make the Quiver Killer? Please say yes. I am confident that the Short Round is a rad board. But, I have my sights on a Quiver Killer after all of my research may feel like I would be settling if I went with the Short Round.

  • ss

    Did you reconsidered to set FCS II system?

  • Simon

    So just to confirm – all boards will now have the black stringer line ? I would prefer a board without it myself. What does everyone else think?

  • Timothy Aghan

    Mine has the stringer, I don’t care either way but what bugs me is that whoever is moderating this forum suggested that there’s an actual stringer in there when there wasn’t one before. At least that’s the impression that I got.

    “Mike Olson, founder and head of our surf program, is always ahead of the curve with new materials and innovation and he was stoked on the stringer and the qualities it added to the board, so we are now using it on ALL Lib Tech surfboards.”

    I still don’t believe it, that stringer line is a graphic on my board but when asked to confirm we’ve only heard crickets.

    I’m stoked on this board but it wouldn’t hurt the lib tech guys to come on this forum once a week and answer questions.

  • reserves

    I have the 6′ 0″ at 80kg, it’s not super big but i’d trade it for a 5′ 10 if I could, these things are super floaty.

    That said, this thing catches waves *super* easy so maybe it’s for the best.

    Riding mine with SF4 Stretch fins as they are the only FCS fins I have, Lib would sell a tonne more of this if they went FCS II / Futures

  • reserves

    I have the 6′ 0″ feels WAY more floaty that my old board 35L 6′ 0″ Firewire Spitfire

  • reserves

    5′ 10″

  • reserves

    Wouldn’t get this as a first short board!

  • Timothy Aghan

    I was looking at the stringer today, I’m guessing the line may actually be functional, perhaps it’s a carbon fiber line. Not sure what kind of performance this would add to the board though.

  • Guy Ben Haim

    Hey , I’m about 70KG X 173cm , I am medium average surfer and I do not know if I should buy a 5’8 or 5’6? most of my surfing days are in low/weak waves..

  • reserves

    I asked about the black line / stringer thing on Instagram and got this reply

    “libtechsurfIt’s a part of our newest construction and has to do with flex”

  • reserves

    I have the 6’0 at 80kg, I probably should have got the 5′ 10″ really. As you want it for weak waves Id’d say the 5′ 8″.

    They do really float, i’d say the 34L 6′ 0″ feels like about 36L.

  • Timothy Aghan

    Somewhat of a vague reply from lib tech but fair enough I suppose. Whatever, the board is awesome and obviously they’re super private about their construction for good reason.

  • Akasha Weisgarber

    any chance of a 6’1″ or 6’2″ short round in the future for the bigger kids?

  • Paul Baker

    You should go 5’6, you height of 173cm is 5’6?
    I’m 5’9 and 70kg and i would ride that size. If your waves are really crap like never bigger than chest high, get the 5’3 puddle jumper.
    These float a little more than most boards too.

  • Paul Baker

    IMO it looks awful with the stringer. If it doesn’t have one internally, don’t spray it on the deck.

  • Joel

    How does the short round feels like comparing to the spitfire?

  • Joel

    I’m about 87Kg (with wetsuit around 88-90Kg) and 185cm, good fitness level! Surfing a 6/5/4mm wetsuit in cold water! Should i buy a 5’10 or a 6’0?

  • Wannabee

    Hi Guys
    Looking for a ShortRound, can anyone tell me more about the Flex???
    Does it feel like a Hayden Epoxy or even more flex!?! hoppeling around in the TUBEs sucks!

  • John Reynard

    any chance to have
    a future fin setup?

  • Daniel

    Do. you do custom orders?

  • carole

    I am a woman of 50 KG my level is intermediate which board to choose

  • Timothy Aghan

    Carole I recommend using a volume calculator. Maybe use the one at Lost You’re probably good to go on the 5’4 short round depending on your skill level. I’ve heard it said from others that these boards tend to be more floaty than traditional poly boards. I have the 6’0 lib tech short round and it def. feels more floaty than 34 cl.

  • Hey there,
    Thanks for reaching out to us and inquiring about board customization!
    Currently, the ONLY custom board options we offer are shown on our Lib Tech DIY Board Builder:

    Because we build all of our boards from start to finish with our own two hands, we just don’t have the resources to make individual custom boards. Occasionally, we will collaborate with companies like PBR and Subaru on a large run of boards. If you’re interested in purchasing 100+ boards with your own logo or graphic, I’d be happy to direct you towards the correct channels! But unfortunately we can’t build a single custom board.


  • Yes we are rolling out a 6’2″ this spring!

  • Hi Joe, we have some B Grade in stock now.

  • Cruz Lee

    Hi Lib Tech
    I want to replace my old PU short round 5’9” with a lib tech model cause I really love this board. To compare technologies I weighted my old board and the new one in the shop:
    – short round PU Version 5’9” 30.71CL was 2.88 KG
    – short round LT Version 5’10’ also 30.7 CL was 3.21 KG

    The PU version was even repaired and with some wax on it.
    From the FAQ I read, that you make LT a couple of ounces lighter than a Standard PU which does not seem to be the case here. So will the5’10” LT board float more or less than my old PU board? I wanted a tad more float but not enough to go to a 6’0” version.
    A quick reply would be nice as I need to buy it soon for my holidays in France.

  • Steven Bridewell

    Ive seen a lot of these boards that appear to delam or bubble where I put my foot to duckdive. What up with this and should I be worried. I have personally seen atleast 5-6 boards (including mine with this problem) board is fairly new and been very well kept
