The definition of a jibstick is a specialized type of snowboard
that is used primarily for jibbing
, either in a terrain park or an urban environment.
A jibstick is generally shorter and more flexible than a normal snowboard, which allows the rider greater maneuverability and control. Unless brand-new, jibsticks are almost always found in various states of disrepair due to the constant contact between the board and the objects being jibbed.
Pronunciation: [jib] [stik]
Also Known As: Urban board, rail board, sometimes called a park board (although a misnomer).
I'm going to spend my day on my jibstick tomorrow, sliding rails in the terrain park.
