Lib Tech Waterboards

Lib Tech has finally completed the surf/skate/snow trifecta, and boards are currently awaiting shipment. We have a big order written up for the new Lib Tech Surfboards.  Coming early June, get stoked!

From lib-tech.com

WE WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT SURFBOARDS!
Each of the 31 pieces used to construct our surfboards are new materials to the surf industry. 30 years experience crafting and riding high performance environmentally friendly composite surf, skate and snowboards went into designing our unique Waterboard process, materials, and shapes. Each fused homogenous surf structure is handcrafted in the USA with a focus on performance and environmentally friendly manufacturing and materials. Only the stainless steel fin screws remain the same. Waterboarding is now fun and healthy.

We will have our boards up on our Lib Tech Surfboards page as soon as they get here.

Patagonia R4 Wetsuit Review

 

UPDATE:
This review is for the 2012 Patagonia R4. There is now a  2013 R4 Wetsuit Review if you’re interested.

Snow on the rooftops

Snow on the rooftops – No Problem

I have been surfing in the Northwest(Oregon, Washington, and Canada) for over 40 years now, and have spent all those years trying to stay warm and get my suit dry for the evening session. Heating up river rocks by the fire to put under my wetsuit cuffs etc, etc, etc… Wool socks and glove liners underneath my boots and gloves, etc, etc, etc… I could go on etc..! My whole adult life has been spent trying to stay warm in the very coldest conditions the Arctic can throw at the Northwest. Well….The Patagonia R4 has finally solved this problem. This is by far the warmest wetsuit ever built on planet earth.

The picture here is one I took after surfing by myself(too cold for sane people) in 22 degrees Fahrenheit with strong offshore winds. Water temp about 46 deg. This was an arctic front in February and the dry sand was frozen solid! We’re talking about serious conditions. I was laughing because I felt like I had tricked the world. For me, my most important tool is my wetsuit, and the R4 is it. Nothing compares for warmth! And that’s not all! This suit drys in about 1/3 the time of most wetsuits and because of the limestone neoprene it is much much more windproof. It’s also extremely durable(like all Patagonia products!) This suit will be hard to improve on.
