Lib Tech is a collective of creative board sports dreamers who have eliminated any barriers between themselves and actualizing the dream that is snowboarding.
Started by Mike Olson who built his first snowboard in 1977, and in 1984 had dropped out of University, to begin making snowboards full-time. Originally Mervin Manufacturing was set up in an "old racehorse barn," where Olsen was joined by Pete Saari, and the two began churning out small orders for members of the local snowboard community.
Known worldwide for their radical approach to snowboard design with unique innovations such as Magne-Traction which employs a "serrated" sidecut for increased edge hold and Banana Technology a revolutionary camber design that did away with the "dead zone" produced in traditional camber snowboards, and between them these technologies between them have received over 15 Transworld Good Wood Awards and 20 Future magazine awards.
Lib Tech is also committed with its own environmental task force, dubbed the "environMENTAL division, corporating environmentally friendly materials into their snowboards (such as water-based graphics, non petroleum-based bio-plastic topsheets, renewable wood cores, and more), but the company has also designed their factory with the environment (and the health of their employees) in mind!
Anything is possible
