Longstanding Partnership Results In High Performance Model 

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 May, 2016 – Lib Tech present the third in a series of …Lost X Lib surfboard collaborations, complementing the Puddle Jumper and Short Round is the new The Sub Buggy. Designed for surfing small waves with a good wave approach. 

Matt describes it as, “Fast and foiled for on rail surfing, but full and forgiving for sub-par and sloppy surf. Refinements during the PRIME and WT comps have led us to this surfboard that grovels well but is still a true high performance surfboard. It is fast becoming a go to fave for Lost team riders looking for an edge in small wave contests, as well as the local crew around So-Cal, who are always ready for something new.” 

Sub Buggy Sizes: 5’8”, 5’10”, 6’0”

Read our review of the Lib Tech X Lost Puddle Jumper where we tested out the board…

Thirty years in the making Lib Tech’s ECO ISO construction pushes performance, durability, environmental materials and process to 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. Nitrogen cell will not absorb water, is 25% – 40% recycled material and we recycle 100% of the offcuts into new foam.

Hexzylon Fiberfoam surface skin greatly enhances ding resistance and break strength while adding a silky smooth ride. Basalt fiber chosen for its high strength properties and vibration absorption is placed directly beneath the Hexzylon 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.

All Lib Techs 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. Every Lib Tech is hand built by surfers in the USA near Canada at Mervin Manufacturing.
