Innovations are something we actually do understand. Lib Tech is the collective energy of 30+ years of board building and riding. Each year our experiMENTAL Division handbuilds new shapes, flexes, contours, blends, constructions, incorporates new materials and works with our pros and doing hands on testing refining and fine tuning our snowboards. Some times it’s radical concepts that turn snowboarding upside down like we did with Banana Tech Rocker in 2006 or Magne-Traction® Serrated edges in 2002. Some times it’s more subtle contour steps like the new high performance XC2 camber rocker combination. Over the past couple of years we have been working with riders like Jamie Lynn looking back at traditional camber designs. Ski camber mis-applied to snowboards never quite satisfied, but camber re-engineered to include subtle banana rocker contours and applied properly to snowboarding’s two feet inputing energy and control bio mechanical model has some real performance merits for the aggressive skilled snowboarder. This year we applied C3 camber dominant banana to three different models in the line. The Darker Series, the new Hot Knife and of course Jamie Lynn’s Phoenix. The world’s best camber snowboard has rocker built into it! Ride a Banana!

New technology, new shapes, new tricks, and new lines. Handcrafted in the USA near Canada. Mervin Made with ZERO hazardous waste since day 1!
TECHNOLOGICALLY TOUGHER – environMENTALLY NICER!
We have changed everything you know about surfboards. Each of the 31 pieces used to construct our surfboards are new materials to the surf industry. 30 years of experience crafting and riding high performance, environmentally friendly composite surf, skate and snowboards went into designing our unique Eco ISO process, materials and shapes. Each fused homogenous surf structure is handcrafted in the USA with a focus on performance and environmentally friendly manufacturing and materials. Only stainless steel fin screws remain the same.
- Last Longer
- Pop Higher
- Eco Friendly
The craftsmen at Mervin MFG. love skateboarding and building / riding the world’s best boards. Lib Tech skateboards and Cockroach construction are the result of 30 years of composite experimentation and testing. Our skates are radically different than any other skateboard on the market. Built in the USA one at a time by skateboarders using 52 strategically selected components, each board is like a giant cockroach with a tough unsquashable “exo-skeleton” on the outside that includes a poppy fiberglass spine and softer, light, poppy wood encased inside. All 52 components are hand laminated and fused together under heat and pressure using a rugged poppy safe to use low VOC epoxy resin system. Cockroach construction is the longest lasting, highest popping construction money can buy…when it all ends there will be two things left on earth… cockroaches and Lib Tech skates.
