I can press properly I just want something a bit softer than what I have now and a bit shorter. I can definitely press my board it just takes a lot more effort than on the other two that I stated. I don't lean to press I make sure I'm balanced over the tail and that I don't roll my knees. I agree that maybe 144 is TOO short but what about the 148?

Well just know, from my experience downsizing and going softer makes you a better jibber short term, but long term it limits you. I stiffer board gives you more fine control.

Get the 148, jib the hell out of and kill it, then get the 151 next year.

Leave the interwebz now and go eat a burger then. Grow.

And go skate. Skating helps snowboarding. Cause skatings harder.

Reviving an old thread....
I just picked up last year's Lobster Jib Board 153, and was hoping people have had a chance to ride it.
What were your impressions?
I'll be taking it out to a local tiny hill this weekend, but was looking for some insight before I strap in.
I'm putting on a pair of Burton Missions.
Looking forward to some feedback.

I now have the Lobster Freestyle and I love it. A word of advice, if you're a park guy, and this is your first board with TBT, take a few runs on the normal trails first. I spent my first few runs with TBT on my butt as I got adjusted to the way it carves. Other than that I know a few kids with Bataleon Disasters and one kid with a Lobster Jib (they are basically the same thing) and they all love theirs. Shred it up.

Thanks for the input!
I'm actually a 2nd season noob. I've just started hitting little jumps and want to work on jibs.
I'm riding a directional rocker board at the moment; last year's Burton TWC. I'm hoping the Lobster is loose enough to let me butter around, but still be ok for groomers.

Camber should help on the groomers, but I wouldn't bomb it at mach 9. As for being soft enough to jib around....... lets just say it has the department handled better than almost anything I can think of.......

Thanks Cheo!

I can't wait to get it out on the hill. It's currently undergoing a basegrind and wax before I strap the Missions on it.

What are some tips I should keep in mind whilst teaching myself to jib? I want to concentrate on keeping balance when landing and transferring weight when buttering.
