- Lib Tech Surfboard - 6'0" Vert Series Top of line performance and durabilityReview by Ross Ross
Rating6'1 180lbs(Posted on 6/9/2014) 2014-06-09
3 years surfing (intermediate)
90% of sessions from Santa Cruz to Point Reyes...mostly Cronkite and Ocean Beach
I buy and sell used surfboards to get a feel for as many brands, shapes, and materials I can.
This was my first Lib Waterboard model I owned. I had the 6'0" and I rode it everyday it was waist high plus. I rode it in weak waves and hollow waves...it really prefers to good conditions but I was amazed at how fast it was even in mushy chest - head high ocean beach. The flex is consistent and when it snaps back to its regular shape you will rocket out of your turns with soooo much speed!!
I am buying another one ASAP but this time I will go with the 6'4 (better volume for me) I am never going to own another short board that is not made by Lib, the performance is really amazing and they are stronger than any other board I have seen.
I will use the 6'4 Vert for good waves chest - head high +
I am starting my all lib quiver and I am not looking back.
- Lib Tech Surfboard - 6'0" Vert Series Great BoardReview by Chris Chris
RatingThis is my go to board for riding the points in Central California. Super responsive and good down the line. Doesn't have the same flexy feel as fiberglass but I never have to worry about snapping it. Great board for good waves. Not the best for blown out mushy days. I'm 5'10 165lbs and the 6'0 is the perfect size for waist high to a couple ft overhead.(Posted on 1/8/2013) 2013-01-08
