Hello again... just a quick update... I made 16 runs this weekend down Spiral... the 1/2 mile downhill on the edge of town... 6 on Sat and 10 on Sun... 1am to 3am both sets. Set one started off when 3 units from Hastings' finest stopped by my van to ID me and see what was going on. I told them and one said, "Hey, that's a longboard... those things are fast." Another said, "Say, aren't you that guy I saw last weekend out on Spiral? You scared the heck out of me... all I saw were arms and legs... I didn't know what it was... I knew it wasn't a deer though." The senior officer then says, "Alrighty then... have a good time and be safe." They leave. Oh, thank God...I thought my fun was over when they showed up. Well, I spent the last week on the road thinking about last weekend and what I had done on the board. I had no way to anticipate how those next 6 runs would go but they went flawlessly... I was glowing and exuberant... no wipeouts... no closecalls. This morning, I turned up the heat...10 fast runs...no traverses... straight down while keeping those trucks bent left or right... at speed they wobble but that can be controlled by keeping them bit to either side. I have not adjusted the trucks since receiving the board. I brake when necessary by breaking the rear wheels loose and sliding the board. I know next to nothing about longboards... I chose yours based on the comments left by others. I do know this. I am still alive and have no serious injuries (though I am still banged up from my big wipeout last weekend)and am so far ahead of where I thought I would be and I have done something that mystifies me...on your board. I use to ski in Europe ages ago when I lived there for a time and have only been once here in the US to teach a niece...otherwise, no real attraction. I know nothing about snowboards, but I know this... I am buying my snowboard from you for this winter because we have slopes here and I feel reasonably confident that I will not die on your board when I go snowboarding this winter. Which leads me to this question... will there be boards available this winter? God bless you all at BARFOOT... many thanks...
