Fingerboards, also known as finger skate boards or Tech decks, are a popular popular hobby and unlike skateboards, riders use their fingers instead of feet. They are often a small replica of a skateboard and were said to be created in the late 1970’s.
Real tricks or skating maneuvers can be performed on the fingerboard, In fact, there are hundreds of events organized each year for those who enjoy the sport where people can compete, shop, watch or simply test out new products.
Some professional skaters use these finger sized skateboards as a tool to plan out their movements for competition while others consider the skateboard replica as a form of hobby, collection or just for enjoyment.
Fingerboarding may look easier compared to riding a real skateboard and it is obviously a bit safer. However, don’t be fooled, fingerboarding is quite difficult and good riders spend hours upon hours practicing their skills.
Tricks on finger skateboarding resemble tricks on full size boards wherein you use the tail or back end and middle of the board to perform. Some tricks are innovative and some are more classic styles or what riders call “old school”. You simply start by putting your middle finger on the tail while your index finger goes on the middle of the board or vice versa as you visualize yourself riding a real skateboard and doing similar tricks such as ollie, super ollie, shove-it, finger flip, etc.
