Lib Tech T.Rice Orca 2021

Description

The 2021 Lib-Tech Orca makes all other boards run scared. The new all terrain apex predator, the Orca is part of the Travis Rice quiver and could easily be an entire quiver for an all terrain freeride focused rider. The long floaty nose and directional shape make the Orca float in powder, while the shorter size keeps it nimble, allowing you to hunt down and destroy any stash or lip in sight. The deep sidecut gouges the snow and lets you lay down some serious carving turns, while the wider waist width keeps your toes and heels up off the snow so you can really get right over those edges without ever worrying about drag. Take it to Alaska for some crazy pillow lines, Japan for some deep powder, or just carve up the resort here in Australia, either way it'll be a killer time.

For 2021 Lib Tech and Travis Rice have partnered with the Orca Conservancy and will be donating a portion of the sale of each Orca snowboard to help prevent the extinction of the Southern Resident Killer Whales.
