1970's 8mm films from Georgia

On a recent visit to my family I uncovered some of the old 8mm films my Dad and I had taken from when I was a kid. There was a slalom series in Peidmont Park in Atlanta, which at the time was about 120 miles north of where my family lived. We went to big city to race, where I did pretty well as I wo...

Scott - This deck doesn't come in different stiffnesses. I'm a 230lb'er myself, and at that weight this board has a lot of flex. Just depends on if you want or like that, I went with a stiffer board for the little longboard riding I do. For me it was too flexy, otherwise, I'd still be riding it. Ron

I've got an 88 RTX on my AXE 1 that I got from Sk8kings, which was modified by Pocket Pistols. I actually space mine to 98 with a 5mm spacer on each side. It works great for me at 98, I've never tried it at 88, as I get more turn than I need as it is.
