Lib Tech’s Air’n Wakesurf Boards

by The Editors on March 22, 2018

Lib Tech Surf is proud to announce their new wakesurf line featuring Aaron Witherell’s “Air’n” model! And it looks pretty nice.

As life long surfers, snowboarders, skiers and skaters Lib Tech founders Mike Olson and Pete Saari along with the past and present Mervin Mfg crews have created a legacy of fun times through technological gravity toys. Inspired all along by surfing and aerospace composites Lib Tech surf was able to bring something completely revolutionary to the world of surfing with our proprietary eco friendly, technologically tougher, zero hazardous waste producing Eco Iso constructed boards made right here in Sequim, WA USA. Now we’re taking our state of the art tech to the lakes and rivers with our new wakesurf line!

And yes, we want one because thanks to Kelly Slater and his Wave Ranch we’re all wannabe wake surfers now. For the rest of the story from Lib, please follow the jump.

Our entry in to the wakesurf category was a natural one and came about as all things Mervin do, in the search of a good friend’s dream board. In this case it was Mervin Mfg. craftsman and local boy gone global Aaron Witherell. Aaron grew up on a lake near Mervin and gravitated towards all sideways standing pursuits. He first started using Lib Tech Surf boards behind the boat years ago going as far as sawing off the tail of a much longer surf shape to get the pop and width he needed to push his freestyle wakesurf agenda. In the years after those initial tests Aaron kept pushing his skills, winning contests and working his way up in the International wakesurf scene. All the time he was building boards at Mervin scheming and devising his dream design. Now it is our honor to bring that dream board to life as the all new “Air’n” Lib Tech Wakesurf model! The “Air’n” is all about air and progression featuring a wide tailblock for maximum pop and release off the lip, flat rocker and mellow concave for amazing speed, dynamic “up rail” entry rail design to keep the nose from poking in tight transitions and a hard tucked edge through the tail create precision and control.

“This board is unbelievable. I never lack speed or pop and I don’t bury the nose. The durability of these boards is better than anything else you can find. Heel dings, and having to worry about dinging the board on the boat are a thing of the past.” ~Aaron Witherell

The “Air’n” is built with new Lib Tech MBC construction perfectly blending the best characteristics of epoxy (durability and liveliness) with the best performance characteristics of polyester (flex and dampness). The addition of magnesium fiber improves the overall impact resistance and the carbon composite stringer exactly matches the flex of a new high performance polyester and holds it for the life of the board. The Air’n also comes with our RRIPS Lib Tech Wake Surf Fins.

So get the crew together and HIT IT! Blast the tunes and get ready to rip the best summer ever because there’s no more down days with Lib Tech Surf’s darn difficult to ding wakesurf models!
