Lib Tech Fly-Pad Wakesurfer
Lib Tech Fly-Pad Wakesurfer
The quest to re-create the unrestricted high performance feeling of freedom and fun you find the ocean or skatepark continues to drive our wake shape design progression.
The key components in performance and wake expansion are speed and size of board and they traditionally are working against each other... a smaller board usually means a slower board and less usable wake, a bigger board is faster fit into the wake in a way that allows tight performance surfing. If you can align speed and acceleration with maneuverability and ability to fi into tight transitions something really magic happens...!
THE FLY PAD MIND AND WAKE EXPANSION NANO CRAFT
Introducing Mike Olson's new Fly Pad, a scaled down, teched up, ultra speedy, wake expanding, high performance, skateboard influenced wake surf shape. The game changing Fly Pad comes in three short, magical alien sizes: 3'10", 4' and 4'3"... you ride it 6-8 shorter than your normal board. Mike is a big fellow and rides the 4' and had never been happier! There are so many features designed into this small fun enhancing dream stick it clogged our CAD programs... The plan shape features a narrow billet like outline that is quick rail to rail, has a speedy straight rail line, and a wide fast tail with super pop. This combined with a flatter rocker body and precision beveled nose that fits radically into small spaces. Mike added some critical details he dialed in through years of experiments... hard tucked rails that release water and create lift wrap the entire shape and he added two speed generation P.S.A. "Particle Accelerator Dish" concaves, one in the tail and one in the nose. The deck features a concave under the front foot to maximize the skateboard feel. Now you can fly with Mike on his space expanding, high speed explorations to the magical delicious nano center of wake surf design.
TECHNOLOGICALLY TOUGHER - ENVIRONMENTALLY NICER!
Lib Tech is dedicated to board riding and hands on high tech board building. We 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. We know there had to be a way...
Mike Olson and our experiMENTAL division applied our 35+ years of hands on board building experience to the task of building a better surfboard. In the process we completely rewrote the book on surfboard construction. Every component we use in our ecoIMPACTO surf construction is completely new to the surf industry. Our 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 Fly-Pad Wakesurfer - At a Glance
This board was designed by Mike Olson from Lib Tech as his skate inspired wakesurfer. The Fly-Pad has a bullet like outline that is narrower than other boards to give it fast rail to rail maneuverability. The board has a super wide tail which gives the board huge pop for busting big airs. The rocker profile is flat combined with straight rails is a recipe for some serious speed down the wake. Mike also put in a touch of bevel in the nose to keep it from getting hung up in the wake. The board has a bit of concave on the deck to inspire more of that skate feel. I recommend this board to the skater who spends his or her summers behind the boat and not sweating buckets at the skatepark on hot sunny days.- Aaron
