Cheo knows what he's talking about here...
Have had it out 6-7 times now and am loving it!
It sucks for bombing, as you said, but that's why we build a quiver, right???!!!...
At low speeds, it's great for spins, presses, rails, boxes and jumps.
It is so forgiving, and floats over everything.
I'm 5'8", 180lbs, size 12 Burton Motos and glad I went with the 153.
Perfect for this type of board. Having a blast!

I can pass any skier out there with my 157 freestyle. You guys suck, mine is rock solid at speeds, but then again its 99% rider, 1% board.

...and 99% reading the thread to know we are talking about the JIBBOARD, 1% thinking we are talking about the FREESTYLE....
Then again, you must be a 99% better rider than I am, since you can pass skiers, but I digress....
Do you see many Lobster riders where you are?
I see very few around here, in Ontario.....but when I do, I take notice and we talk.
Not much LOBSTER action here on the forums.....looking for more...

Whoops. Missed the whole topic. anyways, nope, havent seen one lobster stick ever. Then again, considering the graphics i would be surprised to see anyone with one other that punk ass 12 year old. I stickered the shit outa mine. And hell yeah, that sintered base on Bataleons is so fucking fast. I wax every time i go out.

Ya, my JIBBOARD felt fast as hell first coupe times out, then I either got used to it, or shredded it down.....
People are always pissing on the graphics.
I get it...the artist editions are too much.
But I dig the originals. Mine is last year's edition like this:

The new ones are pretty slick, too.

I hate to seem like a douche but I'm probably getting this years Artist Edition Jib board. So stoked on the Lobster Freestyle I have already. I think a lot of people are scared away from the brand by the graphics, and to be honest (unless they go to Bataleon) they are missing out on some sick boards.
