Ian Reviews the Lib Tech Pickup Stick surfboard: https://www.boardshop.co.uk/brands/lib-tech?style=1950
The Lib tech Pickup Stick surfboard has arrived as the ‘mid length’ resurgence continues!
The Pickup Stick perfectly bridges the gap between shortboards and longboards. You’re getting all the benefits of paddle speed and early wave entry that the mid length brings along with and ability to execute shortboard style manovers thanks to the smooth and flowing outline and a set of clever concaves including a tear-drop in the nose for the odd cheater-five!
The Lib Tech Pickup Stick could find a place in just about any surfers quiver from beginners just ditching the foamie, guys and girls who live away from the coast and don’t get enough wave time, right up to experienced surfers who just want to make the most out of small weak conditions or compete with the pack in crowded line-ups.
Could surfboard construction Nirvana actually be here?
As surfers we’ve all dreamed about owning a high performance surfboard with all the positive attributes of a traditional PU board but with none of the inherent fragility that comes with this construction.
Using 31 brand-new components to the surf industry and calling on 30 years of experience constructing environmentally friendly surfboards, skateboards and snowboards, it was inevitable that Lib Tech were going to produce some remarkable surfboards using this ground breaking, environmentally friendly manufacturing process. Each of the Lib Tech surfboards is handcrafted in the USA with an unwavering focus on building THE toughest high performance surfboards in the world with a commitment to operating in an environmentally responsible manner.
The construction process uses a Nitrogen cell Foam (25-40% recycled content) core for maximum strength and pop. The foam is closed cell, completely waterproof and won’t absorb water.
Hexzylon Fibre Foam Skin, this is a smooth, strong, impact and ding resistant layer with the signature Hex pattern.
Next comes the unique Woven Basalt Fibre which is additive free super strong and resists heel dents.
The Bio-Matrix Resin is super strong and environmentally friendly with the best flex qualities of traditional PU and a longer lifespan than Epoxy.
Lib Tech surfboards are fitted with the lightest and toughest fin boxes on the market. They also use Sprock Blocks at the tail to add even more durability to the most fragile areas on the board. Even the leash plug has been given the same attention with 6061 T6 Aircraft aluminium pins and lightweight fibre composite cups.
