“Hey Guys, Great site, BUT you should give credit where credit is due. Sam Puccio was the first at signal hill 1976. My luge was made the next week in San Diego. The 1976 race, I raced a kneeboard and got 2nd place, because of Sam I traded to LUGE>>>>>>>> Thanks,

The cost of the sport of street luge.
Originally posted atStreetluge.net BBS

Alright. Street Luge IS quite expensive. The bottom line is, theres no way to get around it safely. People want to ride with the top of the line equipment on the biggest hills and go really fast like the "pros" do. Well, unfortunately, the fact is, that ain't gonna happen unless you got money. I don't mean to be synical, but hell, i've been through the money problems and everything too. I'm 17 and I started luging when i was 12.
