Did Lib Tech used to make wakeboards and wakeskates? Is it the same company that makes snowboards and skis now? Did the wake designs get bought or used by another company? I should know this but I'm pulling a big blank. Thanks in advance!

I don't think lib tech ever made wake products, but I could be wrong.

Ride Snowboards bought Full Tilt I think and were making wake products for a year or so.

i don't think they made watersports stuff...they (mervin mfg) had some ad that made fun of it all.

But yes, their snowboards kick ass! i have a dark series and i've never had more fun on a snowboard. and they do make skateboards as well.

I think that you're thinking of Joyride they tried to get in the game for a while.

Thanks all, Andy I think you are on it- I was most likely thinking of Joyride. Thanks again!

I got a Lib Tech DIY this year and broke it my third time riding it! But they are taking care of me and I'll be getting a nice new board.

I doubt they ever made wake products. LibTech and Gnu are owned by the same company called Mervin. Their snowboards are the best I've ridden. They have now incorporated rocker into one of their models and it's unreal how they are changing snowboarding technology every year.
