I may even remove some of the risers as the shape/wheel wells give it a lot of clearance

Riding it to 3rd place in the Tight Slalom at the World Cup at Antibes, the first day it was ridden...

Wow! What a nice job! Sweet convcave! You'll have to let me try it at Morro Bay!

I was sorry to read about your mishaps after Antibes but I'll be glad to see you again.

Take care.
Many Happy Pumps!

Hey Claude,

Of course you can try it! Its the easiest Turner I have come across to ride since the Hybrid, but leaves the Hybrid in the dust when it comes to acceleration!
I have got into using foam for a little concave, so I didn't try it without.
Just got to talk the powers that be into building me a 34" for Hybrid/US Slalom (like Morro)! Can't wait...

"After a very happy period of my slalom career with the TurnerSummerSki team, I am moving on to pastures new-as they say.
I would like to say a big public thank you to Peggy Turner and Steven Church for allowing me to fulfill a childhood dream of riding for Turner, it is something I will always say with pride.
I wish them both well with the company and know that Turner will once more become a major force in slalom skateboard racing, and if the new boards under development are anything to go by, that won't be too far in the distant future - Bobby Turner's legacy will continue forever!"
