2013 Lamar What Used and Reviewed
What? Lamar still makes boards? Yeah they do and they’re actually pretty fun to ride. Shredding Breck in 50 degree temps on this stunt stick couldn’t have been more than what the doctor called for. Here’s how it stacked up during one of the last days of the season.
Board: Lamar What
Camber Option: Anti-Cam. Three stage rocker flat till outside the inserts and then rockered up to 6mm’s.
Bindings: Raiden Phantom
Stance: 22.5 Wide 18 Negative 15 Goofy
Boots: K2 UFO Size 10
My Weight: 165
Conditions: Sunny bluebird warm slush and corn snow.
Flex: Just a touch under middle of the road park board flex. Slightly softer tips and a bit stiffer under foot.
Stability: There was a bit of slop in the nose at speeds especially through the pushed around mounds of corn snow. Under foot though it was a bit more stable.
Ollies: The board had some snap but not enough to make it overwhelming. If anything I would call it slightly average at best.
Pop On Jumps: It can handle about a 25 foot jump with ease anything more you’re going to have to bring your A game.
Butterability: Rocker and a softer flex in the tips how do you think this went down? You need next to no effort.
Jibbing: The board has a big sweet spot in the tips to lock into presses and with the softer flex really lets you get into a nose or tail press. The rocker allows for ease of sliding between the feet.
Carving: The sidecut gets the job done and you can rail a turn within reason. Obviously with it being slightly softer you can wash out if you really center flex the deck.
Rider in Mind: Jibber that hits some smaller jumps and plays around on the mountain.
Personal Thoughts: Jibbing on this board is easy and natural. The carbon x gives it enough pop off of jibs and jumps to satisfy what it’s designed for. For what it is the board gets the job done but it doesn’t stand out as being anything super exceptional.
