    • With a name like the Terrain Wrecker, you know you’re getting a board that’s built to handle any and all conditions. While it may be one of Lib Tech’s more freestyle focussed boards, it certainly has the chops to rip outside the park ropes.

      The directional twin profile is the exact same both ways between the contact points, and the centred stance keeps you with a predictable swing weight for getting your spins on lock. Perfect for riding switch and boosting big 180’s off sidehits. Outside the contact points however, the nose rises slightly more and extends further while the tail is blunted off.

      “Camber sections underfoot offer power and precision when you need it most”

      The C2 Camber profile was developed in conjunction with Travis Rice, it’s his (not so) secret weapon when he needs a board that will deliver float in the deepest conditions. Not confined to the backcountry, the longer camber sections underfoot offer power and precision when you need it most.

      The Sintered base is made for one speed and one speed only: top. Keep it waxed and you’ll be at the front of the pack with this all-terrain ripper. You won’t only be speedy on piste, you’ll also be treated to bags of stability with the serrated edge profile. The wavy edges help to grip when the snow gets sketchy and delivers a more consistent hold through the whole arc of your turn.

      When you take the plunge and hop into bed with Mervin, you can sleep easy knowing they’re doing their bit to help out Mother Nature. Their factory produces all their boards in the USA and leaves zero hazardous waste behind. No one’s perfect, but Mervin make consistent steps in the right direction.

      With artwork from Schoph, you’ll be turning heads all winter. If you’re looking to take your freestyle game out of the park and start getting funky round the whole mountain, the Terrain Wrecker is a solid choice.

Tester’s Verdict

Stephen MacLeanThe Snowboard Asylum

“Put this board in front of any terrain and it’s going to wreck it! Feels very stable underfoot with the hybrid camber profile while on piste but off piste it has great float with the rocker dominant shape. I’m not one normally for the rocker dominant shapes but these guys surprised me.

“Off piste it has great float with the rocker dominant shape”

I was riding it in morzine at the end of the season and towards the end of the day when it gets a bit chattery, The Terrain Wrecker went through everything with ease. Edge hold is fantastic due to the magne-traction, once you lean in and put this into the carve it doesn’t want to let go until it’s time. I was still able to be my normal playful self on the board without it slowing me down off the side hits. Like a said at the start, it wrecks any terrain.”
