Why we chose the Lobster Halldor Pro Snowboard: It’s the closest we’ll ever to get riding like Halldor. It’s still a mile off, but boy, does it feel good.

As far as pro-models go – Halldor’s signature snowboard is one of the most notorious freestyle specific decks on the market. His style and creativity has raised the bar for snowboarding, and he’s done it all with this snowboard strapped to his feet. The Lobster Halldor pro is designed for going full send — whether that’s off the jump line, around the resort, or out in the backcountry.

Who Is The Lobster Halldor Pro For?

Freestyle rippers, park rats, rail kids and senders! It shouldn’t come as too much surprise that the Lobster fleet are catering towards all-mountain freestyle, and even less of a surprise that Halldor’s model is for the loosest riders in the crew.

Shape, Profile and Sidecut

Being a true twin shape, the outline, flex and stance are completely symmetrical on each end. Whichever way you ride it, the board will feel perfectly balanced on the ground and in the air. Speaking of which, this thing is definitely designed for going skywards. It’s built with a fully positive tip to tail camber, and it’s the most aggressive bend of all Lobster’s profiles, meaning it’s stacked with pop through its entire running length.

Where this kind of profile can often feel a little unforgiving around the contact points, the Halldor pro makes use of a Triple Base Profile, meaning that the nose and tail get split into these three sections. Starting from just outside the inserts, there’s a large centre base section and then on either side the board starts to bevel upwards and creates this spoonlike profile.

What this means is that none of the benefits of a full camber profile are lost, but you have the added bonus of the contact points being uplifted and a snowboard which feels way more forgiving and is less prone to hookups or edge catches. As you’d imagine, this opens the door for really pushing your freestyle riding and providing a bigger margin for error when things don’t quite go to plan.

You’ll even feel the benefits of this profile when you’re riding across the rest of the resort. Turning in all snow conditions is made super smooth and intuitive, and the sidekicks at the widest parts of the board (where the sidebase increases to it’s maximum uplift) enable the board to keep on trucking through chundery, choppy terrain without getting bounced around.

If you’re taking it into the sidecountry or some stashes of powder in between pistes, the nose of the board behaves like the hull of a ship, pushing snow out from underneath and launching you up to the surface. As far as true twin freestyle snowboards go, this thing floats way, way better than you’d ever expect it to.

Construction and Materials

When you take a look at what’s hiding under the hood, the Halldor Pro is clearly a snowboard designed for taking on the bigger features over the mountain. The lightweight wood core is bolstered up by some more torsionally responsive tri-ax fibreglass layers. This makes it super reactive and stable at higher speeds. The faster you go and the more you push yourself, the more you’ll get from the board.

Tucked under the inserts are a series of carbon stringers running from the heel to toe edge. While these won’t affect any of the board’s longitudinal flex, they will add some extra firepower underneath your feet and give you a lot more control and precision when you’re gunning it along the edge.

Speaking of which, there shouldn’t be any issues getting this thing up to speed. It’s fitted with a high specced sintered base. This is the toughest and fastest type of base, that absorbs a lot of wax and will continue to charge long after its last service.

Finally, the flex sidewalls are injected with urethane. These add a rugged layer of durability along the edge, making them virtually unbreakable when you ding them off features around the mountain.

Halldor’s brother, Eiki, also has a signature model with Lobster this season which is primed for jibbing, flatland, and street style riding. But this thing is a different beast altogether. It shouldn’t come as any surprise at just how good Halldors board is for stepping up your freestyle game on bigger features this season, but what surprised out test team was just how well it performed everywhere else on the mountain.This isn’t just one of the best park boards we rode all season, it was one of our favourite boards to ride everywhere else in the resort too.
