Happy St. Patrick’s Day

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand

An Irish blessing for all my friends!

Protrucks 32mm mod

Hey guys ! It’s Xavier Brandon here , the newest Prowood team member!

Today, I have an amazing modification you can make to your Pro-Trucks so that they fit any size deck!  Have you ever wanted to buy 32mm trucks, but couldn’t afford them? Well , now you have a chance to make your own.. using spare parts that you already have!

First things first:

You will need :   Prowood HP Pro-trucks ( will not work with basic Pro-trucks )

4  Pro-wheel bearings ( or any wheel bearings will work 😉

( for those who don’t have 4 available bearings, a multiple layer of large or small truck tuning washers will work just as fine.)

You will need a total of 12-16 washers for this method.

A little bit of super glue ( optional) ( this is for those who are using  older Pro-trucks and the wheel axle screws are not as tight)

___________________________________________________________________________

Start off by removing the wheel axle screws ( for those who don’t know , those are the four Allen key screws poking out of the sides of the hanger) from the truck hangars .

Choose your favorite set of Pro-wheels and slip them on the screws. Now, instead of screwing them back in .. take those 4 old bearings and also slip them on the remaining  part of the screw ( one bearing per screw) over the Pro- wheels ( if you are using washers, stack 3-4 washers over each wheel).

If you have new trucks , please disregard the following step.

Place a small dot of super glue on the threaded part of the axle screw before screwing in. This will add thickness to the screws and prevent them from loosening during riding.

Please note: Take special care not to get glue on your Pro-Wheel or the bearing,  for this will cause seizure of the wheels and will prevent them from spinning.  Now, just screw in the whole thing. Viola!

Instant 32 to 32 1/2 mm trucks 😀 ( depends on bearing thickness).

Thanks you guys for checking out this cool project! I want to thank former team rider Dany Mato for the original idea . And remember, this procedure works best with Prowood fingerboarding equipment.

Making Finger Size Skateboards

Fingerboarding Today and a Little History

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.

Here at Prowood Fingerboards, one of the leading makers of finger skateboards in the Unites States, we offer durable, unique, and affordable boards. We have plenty of cool designs to choose from and Tech Deck lovers would definitely appreciate the quality and care Prowood uses in the unique creation of our boards.

We also customize designs, sell stickers, ramps and obstacles for more challenging and fun fingerboarding. Our bestsellers are our Pro-series and Complete Pro-series fingerboards which are all handcrafted and made of high quality 5 ply boards, just like how real skateboards are made. We offer inexpensive but still superior fingerboards to those who are on a tight budget.

Three model boards are offered by Prowood Fingerboards:
– Classic: medium to high kicks and medium concave.
– Extreme: shorter between the deep defined kicks and more concave
– Venti: designed for riders with bigger fingers or those who prefer longer boards. Deep defined dips, medium kicks and concave.

At Prowood Fingerboards, decks, tapes, trucks, wheels and tuning kits with tools are also available and of course, we are willing to customize, assemble or modify your preferred finger skateboard for an affordable price.

Prowood was chosen by UFBA or United Fingerboard Association to supply fingerboards and will be one of the sponsors on the grand opening of TIMZ XL Tour Chicago this November. We receive a lot of event sponsorship requests from their fans and there is no need to wonder why Prowood brand is successful! We think it is because of the great fans we have who continue to support us and help spread the good name of Prowood Fingerboards to all.

In addition to the quality of materials we use, our attractive designs and reasonable prices, we also give freebies from time to time with our orders. We also host give-a-ways, contests and more and you can find us right online in Facebook, youtube, twitter, our own website, Amazon.com and more!

Don’t forget, shipment is free in the United States and available at a very reasonable cost outside the USA. Won’t you check us out today?

Why?

Lots of folks ask my why do I make fingerboards. Why did I start making fingerboards? The answer is simple.  It’s just too awesome not to!

As I hope you have all seen in our TV interview, I got started making fingerboards when Weston (my pro-skateboarder son), asked me to make one for him.

Prowood Makes the News! Click here to watch!

I have always loved working with my hands…… making things, fixing things, just getting dirty.  I’ve built skate ramps in my own and have bought and fixed up and sold more cars than I can count.  It’s just what I do.

When it comes to making fingerboards, for me, it’s about the building and creating.  I love to work with wood.  I love finding new ways to shape it, new designs to add to it, new ways to make fingerboards better.

I am not a web savvy person so I have lots of help when it comes to updating my webstore and the like.  I am learning, slowly.  It’s fun to do, but not nearly as rewarding as simply ‘building something’.

So, yes, that is why I do it.

So, I am interested to know more about you. Why do you do what you do?  Comment below.
