Lib Tech Travis Rice Orca 2019 Review by The Good Ride
The Lib Tech Travis Rice Orca continues on from the Climax and Gold Member and goes shorter, fatter, more set back, more directional in shape, has a shorter sidecut and a decent amount of taper. The board we tried at the demo was not ready for primetime but the production model that Grant and I got on was much much better. While it’s still one of the most aggressive hybrid rocker boards I’ve tried and not something for the average rider the overall experience is really good and of all the T.Rice boards this was my favorite to turn as well as to just ride. It turns easier/tighter than most T.Rice boards but those are straightliners so overall it still isn’t a super tight/quick turner compared to most. If you are more like a size 11ish boot this will be super fun and easier to turn than it was for me with my size 9’s. I think this will play out well for those athletic, aggressive riders that want a shorter fatter straightliner with less consequence than you would think for its stiff flex compared to many camber dominant boards out there. It’s also a great short/fat/aggressive choice for those that see a lot of hard to Icy snow.
