*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Speed Skating Forum Most of the discussions in this forum will be about inline speed skating but discussions about ice speed skating and quad roller speed skating are also welcome.

Default slide board surface is wearing down quickly

Hello, I am not a speed skater but have been using a power pro roll up slide board. After a month of use, I have had a significant slowing in the middle of the board. I have used non wax polish and other products but feel that it is the board just wearing down quickly. Has anyone had this type of problem with other slide boards, or is it just a cheap model. Thank you, Sean

i've never seen a poyethylene slide board, most are formica or similar.
' power-systems.com' seems to be the maker of your slide-board, and at $250 for a 1/4"x2'x7' unbacked piece of poly, it seems like a supreme rip-off to me.
polyethylene has several commercial densities, and is used for just about everything depending on density, and that would dictate it's relative slickness, not to mention the manufacturing process; perhaps if you buffed the sticky area with a high-speed drill/buffer attachment, it would help.
