“I am so proud to announce that I have signed on for another 5 years with Lib Tech and Mervin Manufacturing. From an early Jamie Lynn that was the first board I spent money on at age 15, to the last 10 years of R&D on my incredible pro-model board line culminating with the upcoming Climax model which I believe to be the best board on the planet made with Non-Toxic, Eco friendly materials, built by snowboarders here in the USA. Mervin is a family that I am overjoyed to be a part of and has been putting snowboarding first since it’s inception over 25 years ago. From the water-boards I surf to the skateboards I roll, this company is based on fun with friends, creative freedom and the expression which makes the world a brighter place. Many companies try to replicate what Mervin is doing but there is only one magical Mervin! Thank you Mike, Pete and everyone else that empowers and supports me, can’t wait to share what is in the works for tomorrow!” ~ Travis Rice
“Everything Lib Tech’s been working towards with Travis is about to climax, and it feels so good.” ~ Pete Saari
