Welcome aboard Dom.......i know you've got some great vintage stuff stashed away over there.
Since we're on Turners, here's something old and something new.
Yellow Turner Eurofighter. Steve Church's latest offering, with a Rad up front and a Geezer X Tracker Offset in rear...Avalons. Not sure exactly what this shell is made of but it's hard as nails and snappy.
Very old Turner fullnose with Lazer Slaloms and lathed Kryptonics Raised letters. Seemed like a sin to lathe off the outer edges, but that's how they did it, so that's what i did.



Turner actually made a park board at one time first. Long before the other companies came out with foamcores. I remember Ed Economy had one. When i spoke to Peg, she said they never really took off because they were fragile and it was outside of what Bobby's regular market. They sold a few, but threw most of them in the dumpster.
Imagine that.
Anybody have a pic of one?

Something else here from the Turner archives.....not a slalom board, but by the premier slalom company.....never  knew there was a wood Turner park board.

I tried the Eurofighter prototype in Antibes. it was 2 years ago during the slalom world cup. It was the board of Martin DRAYTON, a red one. That board was fantastic for me. What a change. That week end of 2004 I was racing my Fullnose for the last time.
Now I use a Pocket Pistol.

I would like to buy to Chris Church one of his Eurofighter but those boards are so expensive :-(

I'm not sure if there are any left, to be honest Dom.....but write Steve directly and check it out. I dont know what that boards shell is made of, but it takes allot of pressure to drill thru it...i used a drill press.....and it's tough enough that  hitting a curb wont crack it.....i know that Steve has a couple surprises coming up for 2007 as well.
I'm riding PP's for everything but the really tight stuff, when the eurofighter works best....it's just a beautiful board

It's funny to see all those Fullnose under that " plastic film" to protect them from the paint.

PS: " plastic film" maybe it's not the good translation? tell meplease thank you.

plastic film is correct....Dom, it's interesting really...though i'd never seen it, Peggy says that most of those old boards were built out back in a wooden work shed....That's one of the things that make those boards such classics....they were truly produced by hand, with all manual labor

Yes it's very interesting. I can assure you that my Turner is very precious to me, probably for those same reasons.

If you have the old SKATEBOARDER Mags, you can see one in one of the quiver articles they did. I think it's in Kim Cespedes quiver, the pic where she's sitting on the beach cruiser.

 

 And that yellow Turner Eurofighter is amazingly beautiful and looks fun to ride.
