Product Info

We all know about the black shadows of death, the terrors of the deep that are killer whales. Well the apex predator just got 50% more apexier. Think killer whales with freaking laser beams on their heads. Think orcas fighting great whites or giant squids or something, and their skin gets ripped off their face, revealing Terminator-style chrome and blinking red lights underneath. The Lib Tech T.Rice Apex Orca Snowboard is the pow-slaying all-mountain hunter we all know and love, laid up with a crazy light, concerningly bloodthirsty Apex Construction. It's a cyborg murder dolphin made of carbon fiber, PET bottles, and hot nasty speed.
