Lib Tech X Lost Puddle Jumper surfboard 5ft 5 - White
Could surfboard construction Nirvana actually be here?
As surfers we've all dreamed about owning a high performance surfboard with all the positive attributes of a traditional PU board but with none of the inherent fragility that comes with this construction.
Lib Tech are about to change everything you know about surfboards and everything you thought was possible in surfboard construction.
Using 31 brand-new components to the surf industry and calling on 30 years of experience constructing environmentally friendly surfboards, skateboards and snowboards, it was inevitable that Lib Tech were going to produce some remarkable surfboards using this ground breaking, environmentally friendly manufacturing process. Each of the Lib Tech surfboards is handcrafted in the USA with an unwavering focus on building THE toughest high performance surfboards in the world with a commitment to operating in an environmentally responsible manner.
The construction process uses a Nitrogen cell Foam (25-40% recycled content) core for maximum strength and pop. The foam is closed cell, completely waterproof and won't absorb water.
Hexzylon Fibre Foam Skin, this is a smooth, strong, impact and ding resistant layer with the signature Hex pattern.
Next comes the unique Woven Basalt Fibre which is additive free super strong and resists heel dents.
The Bio-Matrix Resin is super strong and environmentally friendly with the best flex qualities of traditional PU and a longer lifespan than Epoxy.
Lib Tech surfboards are fitted with the lightest and toughest fin boxes on the market which are compatible with Pro Box, FCS, and all FCS dual tab style fins. They also use Sprock Blocks at the tail to add even more durability to the most fragile areas on the board. Even the leash plug has been given the same attention with 6061 T6 Aircraft aluminium pins and lightweight fibre composite cups.
"Since I first saw Lib Tech’s ECO ISO construction, I wanted to build a board with it. The strength to weight ratio, eco minded materials and techniques, and the fact that this tech was being built in the USA was incredibly interesting to me. I am stoked that the time has finally come and hope people enjoy riding them as we have enjoyed building them." – Matt Biolos
The Lost Puddle jumper surfboard by Matt Biolos. The latest addition to the Domesticated Series. Based on the basic outline of the Bottom Feeder, but with reversed bottom and rocker curves. The Puddle Jumper unlike the previous Domestic boards like the RV and Bottom Feeder, features a concave bottom that transitions into Vee out through the tail. The wide template makes wave catching simple and maintain down the line glide and stability. The introduction of the concave increases lift and along with the pronounced rail curve lends itself to top-to-bottom, rail-to-rail surfing. The relatively straight rail line and Vee in the tail keep the board moving forward and able to hold in when executing hard carving manoeuvres. " This is the best small wave board I have ever ridden. I have never made a claim like that about any board before" Matt Biolos.

The puddle jumper is epic, first surf ended up being head high solid surf and it handled it brilliantly! Then last weekend had it in waist and shoulder high waves and it was so much fun! It's improved my surfing already being much more maneuverable having stepped down from a 6ft4" hybrid.

I put in a good 6 hours on the Puddle Jumper this weekend, noodle arms today haha!
Really fun peaky 2-3ft swell on the east coast over at Cayton Bay, absolutely loving it! My cutbacks were better instantly, it's much more manoeuvrable but still forgiving really happy with it!
Look forward to dealing with you guys again!

So I decided to give the rp version a try. I can't understand why Matt Biolos says essentially it's the same board except we've changed the rocker and slimmed the tail in the last 18" and also the volumes are sized differently. All those changes how could it be the same board? Well, honestly, in a nutshell..it's not. It surfs nothing like its older brother. It isn't in the same league as a groveller nor does it blast out of the gates like the OG with enough speed to make your face melt. It is however, easier to surf, smoother, has better bite in turns, and holds a beautiful line in hollow waves. It's still very fast and for someone like me who is more used to a modern shortboard, it is a better fit. It's kind of like the woman you should marry. If you want a wild crazy chick who will party all night, be awesome in the sack but be gone in the morn with your wallet..get the OG. I wanted that in my 20s (well maybe not the wallet bit!) but now just touching 40 give me fun, reliable, can take anywhere any day! I must be getting old! Buy either you won't regret it!
