The smallest of the Lib Tech Surfboards Puddle Jumper Series, the 5'1 sounds almost too short, but in this template, the 5'1 makes big fun. The perfect size for smaller built surfers and groms, this shape allows you to go anywhere on a wave while keeping complete control. The Puddle Jumper is a planing surface speeder. Domestic bliss with a twist. The wide outline makes for easy wave catching and down the line glide and stability. The concave bottom adds lift and increased rail curve, which allows radical top to bottom surfing. The straight rail line and vee in the tail keep the board moving forward and hold in during hard carving maneuvers.
"This is the most excited I have ever been about a small wave surfboard. Personally, it’s the best small wave board I have ever ridden. I have never made a claim like that about any board before. Since I first saw Lib Tech’s Eco-ism construction, I wanted to build a board with it. The weight to strength ratio, eco minded materials and techniques, and the fact that this tech was being done in the USA was incredibly interesting to me. I am stoked that time has finally come and hope people enjoy riding them as we have been enjoying building them." - Matt Biolos
