A collaborative tri fin project by Matt Biolos and artistic, innovative South African hand shaper Donald Brink now based out of San Clemente. Motivation for the project was Stab’s Electric Acid Surfboard test where the original asym shape was given a 5'3” size restriction and intended for use in the wide variety of waves on hand in the Maldives. The boys knowing Mick’s power, skills and refined board knowledge, created a craft that would hit his volume sweet spot while packing in maximum motor and would rail through proper arcs, fit into tight pockets and utilize both flat faces and power sections... they won!

For the Lib Tech symmetric version they went up to 5'4” as the base size and added a 5’6”, 5’8”, 5’10” and 6’0 to open up the doors to everyday surfers like us who might want a bit more volume and paddle power but still want that mix of spontaneous freedom and power on rail that the board was created to manifest. Designed to be ridden finned up as thruster and effective much shorter than your standard shortboard (even your fish) choose a volume you can be comfortable with and push yourself to fit into new parts of the wave like Mick did.

Real world experience cheat code: It absolutely rips “fish sized” in small surf. As Donald and the Lib Tech squad have experimented with surfing larger sizes/volumes of the Micks Tape in small to medium sized surf it has proven to be a magically fast loose performance groveler ripping as a thruster or in tri fin variations in low to medium energy waves. For large waves of consequence keep it true to the original design intent and ride it as short as you can paddle...

“When in doubt thruster out” —Donald Brink

Product Construction
Mike Olson and Lib Tech's experiMENTAL division applied their 35+ years of hands on board building experience to the task of building a better surfboard. In the process they completely rewrote the book on surfboard construction. Every component they use in their ecoIMPACTO surf construction is completely new to the surf industry. Their Thermo fusion process radically minimizes resin exposure and sanding while creating amazingly durable, environmentally friendly, high performance surf structures that will free your mind and lift your surfing to new heights. Lib Tech knew there had to be a way...

  • Nitrogen cell eco up-cycled foam
  • Bio-matrix plant based resin
  • Magnesium fiber
  • G-Glass fiber
  • Hexylon thermo-fusion honeycomb power panel
  • Carbon power spine
  • Lib-Tech leash plug



Lib Tech is dedicated to board riding and hands on high tech board building. They have spent a lifetime of surfing, shaping and working with alternative, high performance, environmentally friendly materials and constructions. Traditional surfboard construction has always felt too fragile and the build process is toxic and unhealthy for the planet and craftspeople. Lib Tech knew there had to be a way...
