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.

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...

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!

jdthai 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.

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.

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.
