ESPN.com just came out with the most in depth article on Lib Tech Surfboards to date. Checkout the article, there are some pictures of Josh and Mike, and a brief mention that Cleanline Surf Shop was the first to receive the boards. Stoked!
After more than three decades spent refining an eco-alternative to the traditional high performance surfboard, Mike Olson and Lib Tech have officially announced the release of their long-anticipated line of surfboards: Lib Tech Waterboards.
Lib Tech is highly regarded in the snowboard and skateboard industries for its environmental board building practices and original, artistic board designs, but the company’s roots are actually in surfing. It is a little-known fact that Mike Olson, co-founder of Lib Tech, generated a large portion of the original funds he used to finance his early snowboard projects by shaping and selling surfboards in the Pacific Northwest in the late 70s and early 80s. Unhappy with the toxicity of the materials used to create surfboards, Olson set out to find alternatives.
