Keeping this thread going!
Here is my slalom collection as of now. I'm still looking for a Santa Cruz cut away.





The Tunnel and Jaguar decks are all NOS The others are not but have all period stuff on them. Mike SDO let me trace some Tunnel logo grip of his that I made that grip job from! Thanks Mike!
The Fibreflex is a re-issue I got new in about 1990 with Indy 149's and Kryptonics C-62 wheels. Notice the early and later Lazer base plates on the Tunnel and Blizzard boards.

I always always curious about the Criddle, who knows if it should be gripped on the black side and the graphic should be on the top or bottom.

The board is flat (no camber or rocker) so it is hard to know which way it should be gripped. The guy I got it off gripped it with the name facing upwards.

 

Any info would be great.

 

Thanks,

 

Tony.

The Benjy is a sweet board huh? It's a down hill model, it came from the UK, the guy I got it off was the son of the pro shop owner at Rolling Thunder skatepark, it apparently sat in the window for years, so he bought it with him to Australia.

 

I checked out the Criddle on old man army, i'll shoot an email to "H" and find out. I never saw one set up, so it's hard to know, plus the deck is dead flat so there's no obvious way.

 

Nice Bill Hanes model, love the stickers under the grip.

 

Tony.

Deck: Cut up a Gashead II, perfect 19 wheelbase, wheel weels so you can have a lower center of gravity. Concave for da feet. Trim a half to 1 inch off each side. Cut down the nose and tail. More soulful than buying something specific.

 

Wheels: You can get slalom specific wheels, but MY dubcons work pretty well if your just having fun. Zig zags are pretty nice too. But I'm not running cones enough to really need a set. Dragons work well too although they are a bit small and therefore slower.

 

Trucks: I'd go with Tracker RTX/RTS OR Bennetts. Or if you got em old Indy 109's and/or Tracker mid tracks. Wedge the front. Leave the back flat or wedge it forward like the front.

 

Bearings: Are there other bearings besides Rockets???!?!

 

You can get all techy, but if you don't have the flow it's not gonna matter
