Lib Tech 2023 Terrapin Surfboard
Alex Lopez mastered the art of speed, style and flow in the powder fields of Mt Bachelor. He studied the art of shaping under the wing of his father and some of the best board builders of our time. Alex has dedicated the last decade of his life to the shaping room, refining his skills and perfecting his surf craft one board at a time with his test pilot partner Leah Dawson and a crew of talented free-surfers.
The Terrapin is Alex’s personal favorite ride. Designed to be a versatile wave catching one-board quiver that excels in all conditions at your home breaks but you can confidently push into larger quality surf at quality wave destinations around the world. This agile "modern classic" wide point forward single fin is built for smooth surfing and glide. Alex’s magically sculpted vision in our dang difficult to ding construction is sure to relax your lifestyle and take your surfing to new dimensions.
“Built for glide, wide point forward, longer rail line for smooth surfing. My personal favorite board.” - A. Lopez

Lib Tech Terrapin Surfboard - At a Glance
A mid-length wonder that can handle anything you throw at it. Alex Lopez shaped this board to perfection and has now teamed up with Lib Tech to create this amazing blade. I feel the board is versatile in everything from waist high beach-breaks to overhead point-breaks. Being a Single fin only I feel this board has a ton of hold and wants to surf in more of a parallel fashion. The board is packed with plenty of volume which really helps in bumping up the wave count. The board is a bit heavier than others in this size which helps in surfing bumpy windy conditions, however for cleaner waves the board is not going to generate the speed like an epoxy board would. Overall, just a great board designed by a legendary shaper and built by one of the coolest surf brands out there (Lib Tech).-Aaron
