Lobster Parkboard 2017

The Lobster Parkboard is a medium soft flexing, twin park board that has the 3BT shape.

Features of the Lobster Parkboard

  • Park 3BT
    The Park 3BT has a fairly wide middle base (only the jib board has wider), which is still going to keep you stable on rails (50-50s). There isn’t a huge amount of camber, so presses aren’t going to be hard to lock in.
  • True Twin
    Like you would expect from a park board, it is symmetrical, so no matter if you ride it regular or switch, it is going to have the same feel.
  • Core Core
    The core is made up of Poplar wood, with strips of Beech hardwood that run from the tip to the tail to give it some extra pop.
  • Bi Ax Laminate
    Two directions of fiberglass, keep the flex smooth and predictable.
  • Super Slick X
    Although it is an extruded base, it has the highest density, which means that it is on the higher end of extruded bases.
  • Soft/Medium Flex

There are a couple of versions of the Parkboard, the normal one (this one) and the Special Addition version, which has different graphics. The Special Addition versions have special graphics and a few different features, that the stores don’t see until they get delivered, so they are normally harder to get.

Although the Parkboard has a medium/soft flex, it is still going to handle well on jumps, especially compared to the soft Jib board. If you are looking for a board that you are going to ride on more jumps, it might be worth searching for Halldor Helgason’s pro model instead. Although it costs a bit more, you get an upgraded core, faster base and an asymmetrical shape.

I used to own a Lobster Special Addition Parkboard, which was my first 3BT board. Although I liked regular camber boards, this was the first time I had ridden a camber profile board with lifted edges.

I ended up riding that board in all sorts of conditions, from light powder, to heavy slush and straight ice.

Riding with a flat base on a 3BT board takes a bit of getting used to, as you can swivel the board around with no feeling that the board will catch. It has a very loose feel riding flat based, so almost all of the time I would make sure to be on an edge.

As soon as you are on an edge, you get the strong feeling of regular camber, where you can push through a turn without worrying about the board slipping out.

Being a true twin, and riding with a centered stance make it a really good freestyle or park board, but hard work if it snows a lot. It doesn’t want to float at all in deep snow, so be prepared to work to keep it afloat.

The flex is a nice in between amount, that keeps it soft enough to press and butter easily, but can still handle high speed riding, and bigger jumps.

If you are set on buying a 3BT board, but want more options than Lobster have, you could have a look at any of the options from Bataleon, which are what the Lobster boards are based on.
