Hey Jack,
What is it about the Rocker board that works so well for you? Does the one you've been doing so well on at the races flex at all? Is flex important in a rocker board?

Rocker Ramblings

Glenn,

The board I ride has virtually no flex. The protos are the same, we will be experimenting with a wood/carbon laminate over the next couple of weeks.

What I like most is the way my feet feel on the board, very secure. You can also run larger diameter wheels and still keep your deck close to the ground, especially if you use Radikal trucks.

A rocker board is not for everyone, however we have had favorable response from those lucky few that we have allowed to ride the protos.

Are you feeling lucky?

I love slalom and the people who slalom!

Sure, I want one! I've almost bought the bahne rocker deck several times but couldn't figure out how i'd set it up (is it drilled old school or new school? what's the width at truck holes? how long is the wheelbase? etc.).

Any sneak preview details on the rocker racer length, width, and wheelbase? How wide is it at the rear truck? (i want something with more foot room than my turner gs/hybrid so i can have a wider surf stance without my foot hanging off so much).
