The Short Round bridges the gap between easy riding “cheater” surfboards and the high performance shortboard. The speed comes from a low entry rocker and wide-ish nose, with a forward wide point and generous concave throughout. The performance comes from a moderate, but not flipped up, tail rocker, a double concave through the fins and the same sort of modern bump squash tail you would find on a typical contest style, small wave HP shortboard. All combined, it doesn’t look like anything fancy and there are no gimmicks, but sometimes less is more, and there’s a lot packed into this little surfboard.
Thirty years in the making Lib Tech’s new phase 3 ECO-ISO construction pushes performance, durability, environmental materials and process too new levels. At the heart of the board is Nitrogencell foam that is loaded with nitrogen and has engineered elongated cell structure for maximum compression strength and energy return. Nitrogenecell will not absorb water and is 25%-40% recycled material and we recycle 100% of the offcuts into new foam. Hexzylon Fiberfoam surface skin greatly enhances ding resistance break strength while adding a silky smooth ride.
Basalt fiber chosen for it’s high strength properties and vibration absorption is placed directly beneath the Hexszylon adding strength and performance. All this is fused using a unique resin matrix that bridges the gap between polyester and epoxy…the best qualities of a new polyester with the lifespan of an epoxy. Lib Techs all come with our Freedom of Choice FOC 5/8” for and aft adjustable fin system; the lightest and toughest fin box system on the market. Fits many two tab systems and some solid base fin brands.
