God bless the guys at Lobster for making the board-choosing process easier than ever. Jib Board, Floater, Sender… clues about where a board’s strengths like are usually right there in the name. Then there’s this one, the Lobster Park Board.
Essentially unchanged from the 2016/17 version (other than being made at a different factory), the latest Lobster Park Board is fully kitted out for sessioning the kickers and rails. It’s got a true twin shape and a mellow camber rise that delivers plenty of pop – plus, like all Lobsters, it features Triple Base Technology.
“The centrebase has a medium width, so it’s fairly stable in the presses whilst still being extra smooth through the turns at any speed”
The Lobster Park Board features the same version of 3BT as you’ll find in the Lobster Halldor Helgason Pro (in fact, it’s the deck he favoured before he slapped his name on one). The centrebase has a medium width, so it’s fairly stable in the presses whilst still being extra smooth through the turns at any speed. There’s no carbon rods or impact plates here; just a simple, solid board that comes in at a great price.
The end-to-end flex is a little stiffer than the likes of the Jib Board, but it’s just as easy-going from edge to edge, making it better suited to all-round park riding. Makes sense, really; it’s the Lobster Park Board!
