Not content with being two of the best riders on the planet, the Helgason brothers started Lobster in 2011. Since then they’ve been breathing a breath of fresh life into the snowboard scene.
Random, creative and fun, Lobster is everything the Helgasons want it to be. All Lobster boards feature Bataleon’s Triple Base Technology, which makes for a forgiving, poppier ride. Not only does this help with progressing your freestyle riding but is also exactly what you need to float in powder. Lobster have five boards in their range suited to all types of freestyle riding and with a team that includes both the Helgasons and Tor Lundstrom you know they must be up to scratch. They even made a girls board as “so many girls seemed to be into the Helgasons”. This tongue in cheek attitude has already made the brand a success story with riders across the globe.
Lobster release two special edition boards every year which feature nasty/funny/random graphics that are intentionally meant to cause controversy and not be parent approved. Nobody gets to see the boards before they’re released and they are designed to be collected like Premier League football stickers.
Lobster have caused a bit of controversy with their special limited edition graphics. The STD jib board was banned in several shops due to the graphic being deemed unsuitable for youngsters. The message behind the graphic, “STD’s will fuck you up” is totally true though! As far as we know Lobster is the only snowboard brand that has ventured into the world of sex education!
