Gear mentioned in this thread:post #7142 of 79187/17/15 at 5:54amQuote:
I think I'd ride that backwards and use the tips as a kick tail.. add some grip tape too.
I have a TechniSki. Also rides like a monoboard, If you want to work on outside edge of inside ski pressure this is a good tool. Not sure what else it's good for though. I much prefer regular skateboards..
There's a skateboard thread here but I'm the only person active there mostly..post #7143 of 79187/17/15 at 6:22pm
thanks for the link to the Retro skateboard thread. I saw 2 of my early skate boards there. G&S fiberflex's I had a shorter yellow one and a longer red one. I always liked the red one better. the Ski board rides very similar lots of soft flex and tight carvy turns.

Wow, how versatile is that? You can ride it like a monoski, or turn sideways and ride it like a skateboard, or backward and go switch. Or maybe ride a handstand, or... wait , that might be a little sporty.post #7145 of 79187/18/15 at 6:54ampost #7146 of 79187/18/15 at 2:22pmQuote:Quote:
no worries, no tricksters here. and the tips are too soft to work as a kick. we are just carving/cruising. my next project it to make a land paddle for it. I've tried it before and it is lots of fun. SUP on the land. http://kahunacreations.com/ I'll stop here. the ski aspect kept this subject relevant to the thread but I don't want to cause too much thread drift.

Tomorrow is Buck a Boad at the Summit Senior Rummage Sale. Maybe the scropions and the Dalbello's will still be there.
Lot's of K2s, a pair of Volkl Snow Rangers, Dynastar X9.
Let me know if you want anything here. Scorpions and Dalbellos are mine. ;-)post #7152 of 79188/1/15 at 6:52pmpost #7153 of 79188/1/15 at 7:01pmQuote:

What are those tail-less things? And does that read "Scorpian"?
Answered my own questions...
MR, if you see this and have a chance I wouldn't mind getting those.
Just re-read your original post - hope you snagged em! ;-)

I did not acquire the scorpions. I'm a little sorry about that, but they were not going to go for cheap before Sunday. The guys that price the skis do so when you show up with them. They aren't marked ahead of time.
I did snag the Dynastar X9s in a 203 length. I recall people cared about them and they look interesting enough to try at least once. If anyone is interested, let me know.
I did get the dalbello snow runners. I won't be able to use them, but they'll look good in the museum. They came with two extra sets of 'skis' or would they be 'runners'?post #7161 of 79188/3/15 at 9:34am
I just figured out how to translate you article on Dynamic to English. Google has a simple free link on the web where you just plug in the link and translate it to whatever language you need.
Great Article, Thanxpost #7162 of 79188/3/15 at 6:28pmQuote:
Fixed it for you hahaha. I remember making mini skis out of a pair of wooden Northlands with screw on edges many moons ago. Got some K2 Fattypuss ski blades for back yard snowstorm skiing nowadays!post #7163 of 79188/8/15 at 2:32pm
Saw some of those elusive old school Javelin GS today. Excellent condition, $50.00, but only 205 cms.. Too short for adult mens GS IMO.. Also, before my time. The Honeycombs were out about the time I started getting serious as a kid.
@Ghost are those your Kolflach boots back there?
Saw them at the Trosa Storepost #7164 of 79188/13/15 at 5:53amThe boot model used by Stenmark throughout his career was made by Italian boot maker Caber, and the model was "Alpha". This model was created earlier specifically for Gustavo Thoeni, an Italian skier who had dominated in the years prior to Stenmark's domination on the World Cup. For "business reasons", Thoeni ended up never using this boot, which was a copy of the Lange race boot that he had won all of his World Cups with. It is probably the very best design ever produced of an overlap boot. I myself skied on them for many years, having had a couple of pairs made for me at the Caber factory, back in the years when I was Caber/Spalding product manager for Canada.post #7165 of 79188/13/15 at 7:14amCaber was owned by the Caberlotto brothers (Caber ski boots and Lotto footwear). Caber was sold to Spalding sports after they had bought the Italian Persenico ski factory, effectively rebranding the product to Spalding skis. Italian ski racer Gustavo Thoeni won a number of World Cups on these, and it made Spalding become a credible name in the world of alpine skiing. After launching the disastrous early '80s "Bio-System" range of boots, the Caber brand plummeted and never recovered from the damage done. It was then bought by Warrington, a Canadian group, only to be sold to Rossignol shortly after. Since then, the original Caber factory in Montebelluna, Italy has been producing Rossignol ski boots.post #7166 of 79188/13/15 at 7:20ampost #7167 of 79188/13/15 at 9:05ampost #7168 of 79188/13/15 at 12:39pm
I found these pics on page #13 of this Retro Forum compliments of SRD. I had a pair of high end Caber's ( Squadra Courses?) They looked nothing like these those.post #7169 of 79188/13/15 at 2:11pmQuote:
Pierre, great info in the last couple of posts but please quote the original post you are replying or responding to. this thread is so large and so old it is hard to remember all that it contains. please keep the info coming.

Thanks for the update on the Caber - Lotto boot company. One of the ski shops that I worked in was an authorized Caber - Lotto - Spalding dealer back in the 70's in New Jersey. I always liked the Caber line of boots although I never owned a pair but I sold many to happy customers. You said that Spalding skies came from the Persenico ski factory and I was wondering what other skies came out of the same factory before, after, or at the same time as the Spalding line. Most of the skies were well made but we had a few pair of Siderails (not sure of the spelling) come back delaminated and I do not think this was unusual. Did you have any experience with the Siderails ?
