Lib Tech’s Nude Bowl: a high performance one board quiver!

Lib Tech are justifiably famous in the snowboard world, having pioneered the usage of much of the technology and shape concepts seen on today’s snowboards – ‘Banana’ reverse camber, Basalt and balsa cores were all Lib Tech concepts and snowboarding is better for it. Lib Tech’s founders have alway been skaters and surfers, too, and their other passions have found their way into the Lib line over the years

Designed by LIB’s in house shaper Jeff “Hendo” Henderson, the Nude Bowl is a streamlined version of our original speedy Bowl Series with a little extra volume in all the right places. A perfect daily driver for aggressive modern surfing that injects high performance into average surf and excels in medium sized quality surf at your home break and around the world.  Built in our technologically tougher, environmentally friendly Eco-Iso construction and now FCS II compatible!

“The Nude Bowl rips everything. You can’t always bring a bunch of boards with you. If I have to limit my quiver down to one board, I can count on Lib construction not to break and the Nude Bowl to get it done in anything from slop to double over head and barreling.”  Ryan Carlson

Jeff “Hendo” Henderson grew up skating, snowboarding and ripping the surf of the Pacific Northwest. Jeff has been shaping/designing boards alongside Mike Olson for the past decade. Hendo designs and works with our internal crew and surf team to tune our Lib shapes to perfection transitioning feedback and his own direct experience into our unique Eco Iso process, construction and shapes. Complete freedom to experiment empty waves and the ability to perfectly replicate shapes create a magical environment for Hendo to push Lib surf shapes into the future. 

The new Lib Tech MBC construction perfectly blends the best characteristics of epoxy: durability and liveliness with the best performance characteristics of polyester: flex and dampness. The addition of magnesium fiber improves our 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 world’s best surfboard construction just got even better!

“Super tough magnesium that gives it insane life and rebound, carbon for pop and more life and then basalt that dampens it all out and gives you a silky smooth ride.” Mike Olson
