Don't forget Catamaran Races!

Scottys got one planed, Its at Ainslie

Have a start ramp off bridge, no cones just timed run, you have to go straight down jumping the teeth on each trany.

I was poking fun, Looks like I got a bite, Ha! Every digger and his dog is rolling foamies these days.

I'm loving the 1 second bonus for Retro gear. Big advantage to Bennet riders. Still counts me out though :(

sorry fitz, but I feel that as the board if made from carbon fiber not glass fiber, it should not count, also theres foam on the inside. fiber glass nothing else. but you can run it in the open class like Neil did last year.

Scotty, It looks a lot like the 1976 ad, so just you have to cut me some slack on the deck!

Hmm I just thought up the rules for Fibreglass Class:

Deck must be fibreglass, nothing else.

Deck must not be more than 7 inches wide and not more than 28 inches long!

Do what you want with the rest!


OG deck: 1 SECOND!

OG trucks: 1 SECOND!

OG wheels: 1 SECOND!

Normal coneing rules otherwise apply.

Time to get some prizes for this class!! Slalom only, no ditch for this one. Keep it old school bro's :)
