The Inertia

This isn’t your “gutless fish.” It’s a mammal. And mammals eat fish. Travis Rice articulately breaks down his new “Orca” board from Lib Tech and there’s several things to digest here: Fish are fun, but they can be kinda soft. So, according to Rice, the Orca plays off the fun of the pow-specific fish, but “took everything that sucks about a fish and fixed it.” Meaning you won’t toe or heel out thanks to width and “a super-tight radial sidecut” means the thing holds an edge like a carving board, definitely a huge plus if you’ve ever tried to lay a soft pow board on rail and felt the thing give way. Plus Rice seems ultra amped on the tail technology. The board looks fun. And Rice sells it well.


Only the best. We promise.
