T.RICE ORCA 

$649.99
ALL MOUNTAIN / FREERIDE – DIRECTIONAL

Not your gutless fish. Travis has juiced up this Jackson Hole resort slasher into an apex all terrain tech shred predator. A long floaty nose combined with a powerful poppy contact maximizing short radius “Whale Tail Technology”. A tight 7m trench gougin sidecut. Wide enough to allow you to really put it on a hardpack rail with no toe drag and oat pillows like a dream but still narrow enough to be your daily driver all season long. Take it to AK, drop BC pillow stacks or blow minds at the home resort all season. A mammal to eat all fish. TR. Award winning!

VOLUME SHIFTED, RIDE THIS BOARD 3-6 CM SHORTER THAN YOUR NORMAL BOARD.

Travis and Mervin will be donating a portion of the sale of each Orca snowboard to the www.orcaconservancy.org in support of their efforts to prevent the extinction of the Salish Sea’s Southern Resident Killer Whales. #betheirvoice

BOARD ART BY: Mike Parillo (@mikeparillo)
Longtime Lib Tech ripper and amazing artist Mike Parillo and Travis worked together on this years “nature x science” inspired Travis Rice collection and have created what feels like the most amazing snowboard line up ever. Mike’s realistic overhead interpretation of the oceans apex predator Orca backs up the first two iconic graphics with a huge splash. This years base eye patch markings are inspired by our local resident Orca K-37 aka “Rainshadow”. This one hits close to home with K-37 being son of K-12 aka “Sequim” our Mervin MFG hometown.

“True to its name, this board is an epic tribute to the force of the Orca. I used a super traditional pointalism technique to create the gradation of the whale’s body, and we let all the magic come from its single eye. The idea here is that this board carries you through the depths of the backcountry, and the Orca’s eye is your compass along the way. There is no getting lost” ~ Kim Krans

Not your gutless fish. Travis has juiced up this Jackson Hole resort slasher/pow ripper into an apex all terrain tech shred predator. A long floaty nose, combined with powerful, poppy contact maximizing short radius Whale Tail Technology. A tight 7M trench gouging sidecut. Enough width to allow you to really put it on rail on hardpack with no toe drag and to float pillows like a dream, but still narrow enough to be your daily driver all season long. Take it to Alaska, drop BC pillow lines or blow minds shredding the home resort all season. A mammal to eat all fish.
