Lib Tech Surfboards 5'8" Puddle Fish Surfboard
Designed for unadulterated lateral speed in small surf, the Lib Tech Surfboards Puddle Fish Surfboard is an extreme little speed machine. A fast fishy spin on the very popular Puddle Jumper. Distinctly shaped with an inverted swallow, set inside a wide square tail, and a speed bleeding, afterburner, release channel exiting the tail.
“The PuddleFish allows full force, small wave, rail surfing with confidence and none of the cumbersome drift usually associated with “alter-native” fish shapes.”– Matt Biolos
Continuing the journey to provide the world's best surfboard construction, Lib Tech remains dedicated to a focus on performance and environmentally friendly manufacturing. Lib Tech's unique Waterboard process, materials, and shapes make use of wind and water generated power, uses no solvents and creates zero hazardous waste. The result is an impact resistant surfboard that holds the best characteristics of both epoxy and polyester construction.
Using Lib Tech's Eco ISO-Tropic Thermo Pressure Fusion System, the waterproof NitrogeneCell Foam Core is married with Basalt Fibers and a Hexzylon Fiberfoam Skin for a smooth and durable board. The Carbon Power Spine Composite Stringer is a unidirectional 12K carbon fiber addition that is pre-tensioned from tip to tail, enhancing the surfboard’s recoil. The Hexzylon Fibrefoam is now laminated on each side of the Carbon Power Spine functionally creating a Variable Flex Gradient Top Skin that pinpoints and caters to areas wanting more flexibility and areas needing more rigidity. Dang difficult to ding and environmentally responsible, Lib Tech Waterboards are a big step ahead in the surfboard industry.

Magnesium Basalt Carbon Construction
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 the overall impact resistance, and the carbon composite stringer exactly matches the flex of new high-performance polyester and holds it for the life of the board. The world’s best surfboard construction just got even better!
