There are a few surfer collabs out there, but Lib Tech’s partnership with legendary shaper Matt “Mayhem” Biolos takes some beating. He’s designed some head-turning models recently, such as last year’s Round Nose Fish, that have naturally been targeted at pow-riding. For 2017/18, he’s also put together a twin version for those who want to scratch their freestyle itch.
“The tail is an entirely different beast, built to make switch riding and side hit spins a whole lot more appealing”
Despite the name, The Lib Tech x Lost Twin Rocket isn’t a true twin; it’s actually got a slight taper, and is set back an inch. Compare it to the original Rocket, however, and you’ll see a drastic difference. Despite being 1.5cm longer, the length of board that makes content with the snow is 15cm shorter. That’s because the tail is an entirely different beast, built to make switch riding and side hit spins a whole lot more appealing.
