Ride the pimp

Oh yes Sam. those were the days. Just us lot and the Benjy team, neither ever competed together as we didnt ride vert, and they didnt do slalom. It was quite handy as when a skate park opened we all had our own space and everyone got to see slalom, park riding and freestyle done to the highest stand...

S-Camber

Yes Gareth, This is a very nice flat land board indeed. From the hester original thru Jani's improvement to this. The grippins do work well on this set up. I am in the middle of coming to terms with the transition between the super tight English courses of the 70's and todays slalom (just as thrilli...

Early bird

Full respect Gentlemen, This will be my 30th year also. I got my 1st skateboard on a whim in a "jumble sale" dunno if you have the same in the US! but it was called a "Chicago Nash sidewalk surfer" with clay wheels. I like to think that I was one of the first this side of the pond. This was no doubt...

Hi world, We clearly have a problem at the moment! Firstly England is only politically part of Europe, PLEASE LET ME FINISH.

New materials, exchange rate and the cost.

Hi all, It is a shame that the exchange rate is on the s**ty side at the moment. As with Chris's beauty and the Red monster that I now have (posted elsewhere on this forum), how can I put this into words? It's a heavy price to pay yes, but as I said before, what price perfection? These new materials...

RE: Turner Summersku Ordering

Sorry guys but i neglected to add that this 2 month quote was for a custom weight and colour order!!!!

What price perfection?

Custom Turner Fullnose

This is a 9.5 inch wide 29.5 inch long Custom fullnose hot off the press, ultra stiff I gripped it 70's style as the decals were on the deck when i got it undrilled. and originally made for Tommy Ryan, but was too stiff for him so Steve Church let it go. The first set i am going to try out is RTS/X ...

Skateboard Slalom VS Ski Slalom I used to Ski in the winter months to keep in shape for Skateboarding in the summer. The balance points are different, "feel those knees burning" and when I should have been "planting the pole" to turn I was raising! (On a left turn I was lifting my left arm - as in S...

Firstly, let me say that this is the most informative forum I have ever had the Honour of being part of. I find the UK-US devide in this matter interesting. This is the origin of English slalom and why it evolved as "tight" partly due to terrain and partly due to ignorance on our part. I started sla...
