Ramps and Obstacles

I am awaiting the arrival of several ramps and obstacles from some local friends who have agreed to help me out with this project.  Since I spend all my time hand-crafting custom fingerboards, I really don’t have time to make obstacles too.  However, I have managed to locate an amazing craftsman and I cannot wait to see what they bring to us.

Here is a small sample of what we used to offer.  I’d be curious to see what your thoughts are?  What fingerboard ramps and fingerboard obstacles should we offer?

Another Graphic Option?

Here is a pic of another fingerboard graphic that I have been working on.  Thoughts?

kissOff

I like the design here, because it looks almost like camo.  I tried a pink and red version with ‘Kiss Me’ first and no one had anything good to say about it.  So, I decided to go for a different genre and made it more defiant.  The colors are sick and I think it would look great on a fingerboard.  If I were back in school, I think I would get this one, just to hope my teacher would try to take it away..   but then again, I was always a trouble maker back then.

Just like all of our fingerboards, this would be hand crafted, right here in Indiana.  We make our fingerboards using 5 plies of wood – making sure we alternate the plies with cross cut wood to make our boards super strong, with great pop.  From my experience, wooden fingerboards will give you a much better ride, with greater control, just like riding a full size skateboard.

If offered, the board would be available in all 3 of our shapes – Classic, Extreme, and Venti.  Sizes 29mm, 30mm and 32mm.

Fingerboard Graphic- Blue Hair

Here is a pic of a fingerboard graphic that I have been working on.  Thoughts?blueHair

I like this because it reminds me a lot of my niece, who just happened to color her hair the same exact color.  I love the colors and I think it would look great on a fingerboard.  Would it help me do better fingerboard tricks?  No clue, but it would be cool enough that I would have to try.

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!

Holiday Shipping Update

IMPORTANT ORDER INFORMATION.

Hello friends! Order volumes are definitely increasing which means the Post Office will certainly start taking longer to make their deliveries. If you need a package for a holiday gift, be sure to give us all (the post office included) plenty of time for packing, shipping and delivery.

Given this busy time of year, we require 1-2 days to prepare your package for shipping. This means that means that we CANNOT ship your package the same day you order. You must give us time to process it BEFORE it hits the post. So, if you order 2 day shipping on a Monday, do not expect your package on Wednesday, it will most likely not arrive until Friday. (no worries, we provide tracking information so you can follow the order along the process route.)

In the US, please ensure that any orders needed prior to December 24 are place NO LATER than December 16. From December 14th – 20th, I would recommend upgrading to Priority Mail.

Outside the US, please ensure that any orders needed prior to December 24 are place NO LATER than December 2. However, due to differences in customs processing in each country, I would recommend that starting immediately, please upgrade your shipping to at least Priority Mail to ensure timely delivery. If you order post December 16th, I would suggest you only use Global Express service.

A: The team of course! Everybody is just so good! So glad to be a part of a legit team.

Q. What’s your favorite Prowood deck shape and size?

A: 30mm extreme model. Anything with a graphic on it really. A black and purple tye dye graphic would be so SICK though!

Q. What is your absolute favorite trick?

A: Switch flip bs tails hands down!!

Q. Finally, any tips or tricks for beginners?
