Why we chose the Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Short Wide Snowboard: With a facelift for 2020, the Short Wide is more versatile than ever.
Jamie and the bods at Lib Tech went back to the drawing board for 2020/21, and this year the Short Wide is… longer and narrower. Not by much though, it’s still the board you know and love, just with a few tweaks to bolster its versatility. This is your volume shifted powder ripper built for getting pitted 2000m above sea level.
It’s fair to say that Jamie Lynn is an uncontested legend in the game, his bolshy style paved the way for many riders and helped to transition snowboarding away from skiing and into its own entity. Drawing inspiration from surf and skate culture, the Short Wide is an amalgamation of all things sideways.

Blurring the lines between freestyle and freeride, the Short Wide is part of Lib Tech’s ExperiMental Division. You just have to clap eyes on this little beauty to see where it calls home, it flourishes in nipple deep champagne powder, tight tree runs and open bowls.
A huge 27cm waist width keeps you floating no matter how deep it is, the Short Wide is 648 square inches of pure levitation. Add this to the 3-inch setback, and you’ve got a snowboard that would give anything on the market a run for its money when its been spewing.
