The 2014 Lib Tech Skunk Ape Snowboard is one of the best boards around for big riders. Whether you’ve got big feet, a big gut, or are just plain tall (or all three), this board is for you.
The Skunk Ape is an all-mountain freestyle snowboard with an almost twin-shape. What this means is that the board is basically twin-shaped except for a slightly longer nose. This elongated nose helps the board float over fresh powder and blast through icy crud. The slightly shorter tail, on the other hand, improves the snowboard’s overall stability. Because no drastic directional measures are taken, you can still ride switch without worry.
Solid tip and tail pressure and a medium amount of pressure between the bindings is the name of the game as far as the Lib Tech Skunk Ape Snowboard’s rocker/camber profile goes. The board’s relatively stiff flex mean that it has plenty of pop, power, and precision.
Like all of Lib Tech’s offerings, the Skunk Ape is made with only the highest-quality environmentally-friendly materials. And it’s made by snowboarders with jobs for snowboarders that love to shred.
Need a big board because you’re a big dude? This board checks out. Plus it does so without sacrificing anything in the way of weight, performance, or durability.
