The premium model of Lib Tech's Orca line, the Apex Orca is an all-mountain oriented board that can handle every aspect of the mountain. The Apex Orca provides the best edge hold i've experienced, allowing for super deep carves and massive control. The board is very manageable in all types of terrain and provides a fast snapback when performing jumps, giving this board some extra pop.

I was disappointed that the board didn't provide any extra glide to accelerate faster, especially at the premium price of this model. All in all, the Apex Orca is very comparable to Lib Tech's Golden Orca, with the addition of more pop and float in powder. If you have the money, I'd certainly recommend picking one of these bad boys up.

Pros
  • Unparalleled grip and edge hold
  • Provides great pop
  • Very forgiving board
Cons
  • Lacking additional speed and base glide than less expensive options
  • Slightly slower edge to edge transition
  • No noticeable difference between the Apex Orca and the regular Orca in powder
