I'd posted up on a couple different threads and was asked to post up some pics of some of my old slalom boards....not sure where to start....i'm new to this site and the folks here have some rare boards..........Trying to keep it to classic boards, these may be worthy for a start

Late model Bobby Fullnose....painted 1970 Challenger Green with Gold Spilts and C-62's
Done in honor of Bobby Turner


Or how 'bout this one...this ones been around, but i think it may be the only one in existence (?)...It's a mid to late 70's Seaflex foam core with splits and red c-62's....I've only seen an "Ad-picture" of this board....and dont know much else about it...but i dig the decals covering the bottom. About 2" of the nose was whacked off it when i got it, so i had to guess on it's original shape and rebuilt it from resin...i'm hoping it's right


Then there's this 1973 Ick Stick....I had to call Rick Howell about this one. It's one of his first boards. He made it in Junior High. It's hand rolled resin over mahogany. He built it for a friend in woodshop. The logo was done with rice paper in his art class.
The trucks are RollerSports and the wheels are Metaflex Surfers. No doubt this was one of the first actual slalom boards ever made. It was a bitch finding the right trucks and i must have gone thru a dozen before i called him and he admitted they "eyeballed it" when they drilled it...so the holes weren't perfect......kids.....what can ya say.....


All three of these boards are still rideable.

Slalom!!!!!!!!!!

Remember stealin the road cones & doing major wipe outs when we'd hit the base........................

  

and then we got smart and cut the base off and the times went down!

 

And then someone else got smart and started to make them that way,

sure wish I'd get smart at the right time one of these days.

 

and those vintage slalom boards,

Thanks Bro,

brought back good memories and now I must go slalom, excuse me.

Here's a nice one though...this is a one-off 36" GS Ick Stick made for Atilla Azodi when slalom was taking off a few years back. It's got a resin concave and carbon fiber stringers. Painted 1972 Corvette Canary Yellow Urethane with hand laid stripes...Radikal up front and a PVD RII in rear ...and trimed Av's of course.....(notice the rears are reversed-cones like those Red Krypts)....This deck i may part with sometime soon.....Daddy needs a new tattoo...

 

 

thanks for the welcome folks.....and the words on my old board....This is a great site

Sweet decks ! When I lived in Upland in the late 70's I hung out with Rick Howell, founder and builder of Ick Sticks. They were really killer slalom decks, I wish I would have kept mine but, oh well.

The venerable Hobie-Flex slalom with early Fultracks and Hobie wheels along with it's sibling Hobie-Flex kickail with Midtracks and Hobie wheels.  Also a Hobie Competition with Halftracks and big, fat Hobie wheels and a Fibreflex with Bennett Hijackers and Road Rider 4s (of course).

 

The Hobie-Flex slalom is a carving machine and still great fun to ride.  I recently set it up with Mellow Yellow Dragons and Biltins.  Feels like you're floating.

 

 

There are more slalom boards in the Vintage Fiberglass thread.

Pretty tough to follow up Pimps collection......Here's something in from Steve Church and the Turner Museum....



left to right - early fullnose raced by the only female summerski team rider, gail steiner. A  hand-stand board made for tommy ryan (sister board to one featured in dogtown & z-boys) and another fullnose formerly owned and raced by tommy ryan. All 3 feature del mar sand for grip!

You wont find this pic on the other sites
