Re: Slalom stuff for sale

Was a custom order. 28 3/4" X 8 1/2", is 7" wide across the tail at the rear bolt holes and is 19 1/2" between the inner bolt holes (truck to truck). It is a stiff flex. I would have preferred stiffer, but I weigh 235 and ride inside the trucks instead of on top of them.

Looks like the board Turner made when I requested a custom board. It was supposed to have high camber and a nose like the old cut-aways. I'm glad to see it has come to a good home.

New Splitfires...

I have heard from an inside source that the new trucks were developed using gravity warp technology borrowed from alien space craft at area 51... The only side effect has been some pulled back muscles when test subjects forgot to turn them off before trying to pick up their boards.

I prefer a "high camber" board. Like a second generation Turner, a litte better than 3/4". With the apex of the camber closer to the front truck.
