The slalom part will be adapted to the hill, i haven't seen the spot yet so i can't tell if it's gonna be a TS or Hybrid.

I'm in...I'm guessing because of the "no leathers" rule that the DH will be relatively tame?

Great day indeed...you haven't lived until you see Claude doing double-board nose/tail wheelies with his DHB socks on! EH!

SO many good people in the skateboard family - nothing I'd rather be doing on a summer weekend.

Rock on Canada!!

Thanks Freddie!

Merci Pierre - coming from you that is a very nice compliment. We'll see how I do on a real DH hill, but yeah, I'm addicted. :-)

TP - yeah, I'm hoping to go to Munsville if I have the full setup and leathers/m-cycle helmet by then. Just to learn more and hang with my peeps!
