Re: Slalom boards on ebay

I'd split the Turner/Strokers, and put up that you're willing to post worldwide.

3 Turner Pollacks have sold recently for $1300-$1650, 2 of which went to one guy here in the UK.

Schmitt Stix - Swivel Stick

I recall seeing one of these in RAD magazine (UK skateboard mag) in 1990. Does anyone know if they ever made it into production? Never seen an advert, or a listing, so I assume only a few prototypes were made.

Any info?

Anyone used Bones' Reds? I don't need a race bearing, just a good quality, affordable bearing for putting in a few sets of wheels. The price is nice, but what about the bearings?

I don't think many Santa Cruz decks came into the UK until mid-77. The only reference I could find in Skateboard (the UK's major magazine at the time) was a s...

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3142/2296944534_e1096f5a67.jpg Does anybody know the correct name of my Santa Cruz deck? Looking in 1978 issues of Skateboard magazine I've come to the conclusion that it is a Santa Cruz proflex cutaway. Is this correct? It is set up with Tracker mids and G&S wonkers....
