Big-mountain freestyle, perfected.
Jamie Lynn charges hard from Mt. Baker in-bounds runs to the backcountry, so he worked with Lib Tech to create a board that could handle both high speeds and deep snow. The result is the Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Phoenix C3-BTX Snowboard—a camber-dominant big-mountain stick that's equally capable of ripping steep lines and surfing bottomless powder with ease. This wide version is well suited to bigger riders who rip.
The C3-BTX profile looks and feels like traditional camber, but it actually has a slight amount of rocker directly between the bindings to improve float and control in powder. A directional twin shape and slightly set-back stance give you more power and control when you're shredding steeps, but it still allows you to ride away switch so you can stomp those big back 180s into fluffy landings. The board also features a mellower version of Magne-Traction to give it a less grabby feel, without sacrificing reliable edge hold.
You can also ride a little easier knowing that this board was made right here in America using environmentally friendly materials. Basalt reduces the amount of fiberglass needed without sacrificing strength, the Bio Bean topsheet is made from castor beans instead of petroleum-based plastics, and the lightweight and lively aspen and Colombian Gold wood core comes from fast-growing, sustainably harvested trees so you're not contributing to the destruction of the rainforests.

- Q & A
My favorite Lib Tech
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
What separates this board from other Lib Tech boards is pop. The C3 tech works. It's a fairly poppy deck, with a medium-stiff flex that allows for some play. Not uber stiff, not too flexy. Just a great, strong all mountain flex.
The set back makes this thing fun to rip groomers. The spring in and out of turns is there. Note that all Libs and NSs kill some of the pop due to the resin load in these boards. What I like about this board is that the resin doesn't seem to kill the pop. And with that resin comes a damp, stable ride. This is a charge through anything and know the board will take it and spit it out. Very fun, charge anything and enjoy it board. Not the most floaty board in powder due to the profile of the board, but it's set back, and if you can ride you will enjoy it in powder. Don't buy the marketing. That minimal rocker between your feet doesn't add float. What it does is make the board quicker than standard camber edge to edge. So this board makes a nice glade runner.
I highly recommend this board to someone that needs a damp board to charge, yet still wants pop and spring through carves. This board will eat your worst snow days after everyone has been the groomers to hell, or if you go out in the crust of 7 day old snow through the gates.
If you want send it to the moon pop, look at a Custom X or Capita Mercury.
