Lib Technologies Doughboy Shredder HP C3 Snowboard
Doughboy Shredder Snowboard
The Lib Tech Doughboy Shredder Snowboard lives by the saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it". This super-long directional twin may look more at home in the glory days of the mid 90's but there is a reason this big mountain destroyer, the biggest and most stable in Lib Tech's line, is still in production today.
To ensure you can charge and straight line with confidence this beast is equipped with a stiff flex, C3 profile, and a generous turn radius. The 7 out of 10 flex creates responsive feel at high speeds and lets you power through chopped up snow without a fear of going over the bars. The C3 profile is made up of mild rocker between the inserts and camber under each foot. This combination keeps your tip up and gives you enough flotation to ride on even the deepest days without sacrificing edge control and stability that is found in a cambered board. Coupling these things with a long 9 meter turn radius adds more stability at high speed as well as encourages you to lay down big long turns on the way to the lift after an all-time pow run.

Unique, fun, fast and beastly
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This board is so much fun! It is challenging and tiring and is still an absolute pleasure to ride. Stiff boots and bindings are a must and i can understand why people have set these up with hard boots in the past. This thing will make some massive carved turns and thrives on sparsely populated extra wide groomed runs. It holds and edge and carries speed as one would expect from a board that is this big, stiff, and heavy. This is not an every day board by any means, because its sizes hinders its maneuverability in tight trees and technical or bumped out situations. But if you want a very fun ultra unique piece to pull out of the quiver occasionally this board is a very fun option. The more i ride it the more i love it. Switching back to more standard boards after a few days out on this was strange as they felt very small, light and highly maneuverable. Of course all different styles of boards thrive in some situations and adding the Doughboy and its unique style and tendencies to the quiver is now a highlight of this season.
