The 2024 Lib-Tech Golden Orca was designed to be exactly what Travis needed when competing in the Natural Selection competition, a combination of the fan favourite Orca and his own T.Rice Pro. Take his award winning Orca and make a small alteration to the tail to make it more user friendly riding switch in powder, construct it with a lighter, more powerful core, and you have the newest evolution in the Orca line. If you want to stand out in a pod of other Orcas on the mountain, look no further than the Golden.
*Due to the volume shift on this board, we recommend you ride this board 1-3cm shorter than your normal board.
Rider Level: Intermediate - Advanced
Board Type: All Mountain Freeride
Camber Type: C2x
Shortened rocker between your feet with lengthened camber to the tip and tail gives you power and pop on groomers and in the park along with float and freedom to charge through powder. More loaded pressure in the tip and tail than regular C2 for a more aggressive and stable ride.
Flex: 7/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)
This board has a naturally wider waist width, a long floaty nose, and a powerful tapered tail that gives it amazing float in powder while still being versatile enough to ride every day.
Core: FP - Firepower
Lighter, environmentally nicest, smoothest. Combines 10% Balsa, 40% Paulownia, and 50% Aspen woods with Triax glass and a +/-45° Basalt web. This core is crazy light, strong, and smooth.
Base: Sintered Knife Cut
Fast and rugged with maximum wax retention.
Mounting Pattern: 2x4 inserts
Magnetraction - 7 strategically placed serrations along the edges of the board grip onto the snow and hold a strong edge in any condition.

Lightweight Spin Slim Tip and Tail - Reduced thickness in the tip and tail reduce swing weight, giving you quicker spins and a lighter board.
