Look for another great shape added to the Roe Organic series.
So far the Crossfire is getting Rave reviews. The new Unlimited shape is going to broaden the series. Wood is Good. TK

Having used the Unlimited shape for the past few months I can tell you that it is a very functional shape.

Having not skated in anger since I can't remember, uh 1985 rings a bell, anyway the past week on my new Roe PS Unlimited w/105 Siesmics and Avalons has been fantastic!
In case anyone is shopping sight unseen like I did,(the flex profile sticker said MED/STIFF I'm 195 lbs.)I'm using the longer wheel base holes and when I take a modified parallel stance 1-1/2" behind front truck there's just a hit of camber left. Oh and the build quality is beautiful!

To all you Roe Racing team members, would you get the Unlimited or bullet shape for TS and HS courses?

Hunter, depends on how tight you want to go. Last year I raced everything on an Unlimited shape and never felt the need for more. If you want true ts the X fire, all round go with the unlimited. TK

Hunter,
If you skate surf stance I would have to recommend the Keith Hollien TS for TS and the GS for HS. I know this will come as a big shock that I would recommend my boards, but the shapes do work. Take a look at my boards and check Rick "66" post about being in your area T-day. If you have any questions my contact info is in my section.

Later Keith, Teams Radikal & RoeRacing.

I have to agree with TK. I could answer like this.... for T/s go with the HOll 28...but If your looking for a great all-around deck the PS Unlimited is the way to go.

Hunter, a Med/Stiff would be good if you around 150-200lbs...what would you use the board for? If your looking for a good all around set up this may be a good flex to go with pending your weight.

Yea I'm going to order it. I'm just getting into slalom and I've been trying my best to run cones and pump on my longboard. It's so fun I can't wait to get my hands on a nice slalom setup.

Tonight I was able to test out the new Unlimited with some nice cone-runnery (as opposed to just cruising around my neighborhood as before) and I'm blown away!! What a great cue that is!

I'm also waiting on a Unlimited, if it's half a good as my Bottlerocket it will be a extremely sweet board.

Greg,

It was a pleasure to compete against you and your mates!!

I hope I can stay in the mix for Bridge Day?

If you can, tell Scott O. that I'm good for the shipping on the KCR T-shirt.
He can PM me for the additional funds.

Oh yea, Roe Unlimited............Don't leave home with out one!!

After riding my Roe Unlimited my friend Ray a slalom newbie. Asked me how much I wanted for the board. Ray is definitely STOKED!!!! I will make him a good deal. I will miss the board, but on the other hand I have a friend to ride with. Ray also asked me how much did I want for my GS/City Bomber Insect Board, be happy that I am selling you my Roe bro, but hands off the Insect. Great job on the boards Steve and Gareth. Eddy Texas Outlaws. KCR good choice on your slalom quivers.

Got my Roe today and I'm very impressed. It's my first slalom board and I love it so much. I took it through some cones and it's great. It's very responsive and easy to control.

Nice setup Alex!

Been practicing? Did you ever find a crew to skate with?

Haven't found a crew yet. It's just me and one friend. I try and setup some cones(solo cups) or at least some kind of marker but the streets are just too crowded around here and I can't really travel too far to find a place to skate with less traffic.

FINDING SLALOM SPOTS

Post by Steve Collins » Sun Aug 08, 2004 7:58 pm

Alex:

Try bike paths, park paths and access/maintenance driveways in parks. None of those places have cars. We always defer to foot and bike traffic and wait for them to pass before running. All of my favorite spots fall into the above categories. Pretty much everybody at the spots totally digs watching us skate.

I occasionally set up cones late at night in my neighborhood after the traffic dies off, usually around 11:00 to midnight. If you're still just a kid you might want your parents' approval for that. I set the cones off to the side, out of the way of the few cars that do occasionally come and wait for them to pass before continuing.

I've found some allyways but the pavemant is all cracked with grass and stuff growing through it. The bike paths are all way too crowded. Park paths and maintenance driveways are the only ones that I can see working I'll look out for something like that. As for skating around midnight, it would work if I didn't live in LA, there are still plenty of cars on the road at midnight and there is no light source once it gets dark. So my best bet would be a park path or maintenance driveway.

Alex,
Look for business park parking lots on the weekends. Some may have good asphalt and zero traffic on the weekends. You don't need much of a slope to work on your pump.

We usually hit a local community college on Sundays and usually have no problem.

I just got a chance to give my Unlimited PS a good workout yesterday, WOW!!!!!! What a great deck! It felt perfect under my feet. I'm new to slalom, but I've skated for 30 years, this thing rides like a dream and looks better than most of the women I've woken up with................



then again, how good looking of a girl am I REALLY gonna get!

Unlimited PS - Wins the 2004 Slalom World Championship!

Post by Gareth Roe » Wed Oct 13, 2004 6:05 am

Ron and the others-
The <b>Unlimited PS</b> is a great deck! It was originally designed by Terence Kirby and has been described by many as the "Swiss Army Knife" of slalom skateboards.

<b>Gary Fluitt just won the 2004 World Slalom Championship on a stock - off the the shelf - 2004 Unlimited PS. </b>

Gary was riding the very same deck that anyone can order directly from us or pick off the shelf at a limited number of retailers around the world. The Unlimited, like all of the RoeRacing decks, are hand-crafted one at a time.

Get yours today! Contact us at sales@roeslalom.com for more information about this deck and to place your order!

Later-
Gareth Roe

Listen to him^ , he's pre-med!



and he's quite right! For that kind of cash, you're foolish NOT to have one, I can't say enough about how nice this deck is. I'm SURE it'll jack me right up into contention with Mr Mollica.....










eating contention, NOT slalom!
