I set mine up last night!

I think this will be a good ride for Norski when he is all mended.
Until then, I will have my fun!

Ahhhh, sexy!

Ok, I bought one.
Now, this is my first foamcore and I wonder what I should think of when setting it up. I don't want to ruin it. :)

Board set up

Postby Paul Price » Tue Mar 11, 2008 10:57 pm

Hi Toby,

Hope you are enjoying the deck, the set up is easy, wedge the trucks as normal (extra at the front, de-wedge at the rear, keep the board level at the centre and use enough risers so you don't get wheel bite!

The front truck can be moved back for those really tight courses, as in this photo taken at the 16 Juni 2007 Goteborg race:

I am really looking forward to racing in 2008, travelling and meeting up with friends old and new! See you at the races, Cheers, Paul

Thanks Paul. I managed to set it up eventually, with some help from Dave Rogers.

What I initially meant was that I was worried to tighten to much, and wreck the holes. It turned out that if you use your brains, you will manage just fine, hehe.

Looking good Toby!

We just had a race at Wasteland in London and there was a good turn out of Roadster owners!

Wait until you see the new 2008 evolution of the Roadster to be revealed soon :-)

Thanks to Don and the Pavel crew for setting up the Gog race. I was very pleased to be on the podium again in the Pro Special and Pro tight races. The level of racing is insane and you need be 100% to be in with a chance.

GOG Do or Die Race 12-13 April 2008
Photos of the race and extra shots of the NEW ROADSTER board are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/39089904@N ... 679268658/

I got to pick up the new evolution design wide- tail Pavel 'Paul Price Model' Roadster GT-R.
Look for it coming to a race near you soon!

Also Bish asked about the new Roadster GT-R, I will continue testing it and give feed back to the team at Pavel who will incorporate my suggestions so that the board will be ready for sale by the summer! At the moment it feels pretty good, and the wider tail does help in some courses.

Finally got to set up the new wide-tail Roadster with some new GOG trucks and Seismic wheels.
The concave is a little more deep and the room at the tail feels great! Here are some pics.

Thanks Spike!

The new wide-tail concept for the Roadster really seems to work well with increased power.

I took a 3rd in the Hybrid and a 4th in the Tight at the US Nationals at Morro Bay.

And then I travelled to Hood River for the Gorge Game - look for slalom racing
on Fox Sports Channel from 17th August 2008.

Stolen Roadster

Postby Paul Price » Thu Sep 04, 2008 12:01 am

Last week there was a TV show recording for a weekly prime time show called "The Gadget show".

http://gadgetshow.five.tv/index.htm

It was filmed at Bay66 skatepark, London.

They tested the Pavel Roadster amongst 15 skateboards (including long-boards, snakeboards, electric boards etc) to find the top five skateboards.

How did it do against the competition? You will have to wait until October when it goes to air on National TV.

In the mean time keep a look out for my kuro black Roadster (350z logo) with silver GOG trucks and Blue Hotspots.

It was stolen from the stack of 15 different boards.

Obviously the most desirable board to the street urchins.

BUT I WANT IT BACK!

Here is the board with the presenter Jason, just before it went AWOL:

Image

Keep 'em peeled (and put the word out) - thanks, Paul

Gadget show Board Test Monday 7pm

On Monday the Gadget show on channel 5 will be testing 15 skateboards and ranking the top 5.

Image

Jason the presenter rides giving it some:
Image

Will a slalom board do well in the testing?

We rode the Pavel Roadster, in slalom and in the halfpipe, thanks to the kick-tail.

Image

Watch it and see!

The original board was stolen and is still at large.

Donald sent over a replacement for further testing double quick.

I'll try to get a link to the show: http://fwd.five.tv/gadget-show/next

Just saw the Gadget show top 5 skateboards test on national TV.

Thanks to Rob for joining me on the Gadget show testing team.

Trying out all the boards was fun.

The Roadster was versatile, as we rode vert
on it as well as being fastest thru the cones

Having some slalom on prime time TV may get some people skating!

Here is the link on the Gadget show, almost a 3 minute segment :-)

Well done, Paul--good PR! The praise for your board sounded more enthusiastic than most.

Looks like they even had you skating regular-foot as well as your traditional goofy, eh? :-)

Question from a newbie :)

Is it just the graphic that is inspired by the 350Z or the shape of the board?
Is it the same shape on every Pavel Roadster?

When I had the idea for a new slalom board in 2002 I wanted it to be inspired by a car shape rather than the surfboard shaped boards around at the time.
I called it the roadster because that was the type of board I wanted, a light, fast, fun board to ride like a convertible roadster car.
A major part of it was to have the flared wheel arches (concave) and wide tail so as to put the power down in pumping tight courses.
The roadster badge was added to the board to make it more car-like, like the silver badge on the rear of most cars. The Union Jack and chequered flag badge is from the MG.
The 350Z badge looked cool and matched my ride at the time.
The latest boards have the GT-R badge to reference the latest super car.
Check the earlier posts in this thread to see the evolution of the design.
The latest boards have a wider tail to make the board more versatile.
Try one and enjoy the ride. Cheers! Paul

Looks like a nice board there Adam.

What trucks and wheels are you using? Currently I have GOG trucks and Seismic wheels.

I just finished the US Nationals in Colorado and was stoked with a 5th in the Tight Slalom!
