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?

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.

Interview With a Team Rider: Alexis Garcia

Have you ever wanted to learn more about the Prowood team? Well, here is your chance ! We ask several riders in an exclusive one on one interview for some insider details and a few tips and tricks on what it takes to make the Prowood Team. Today’s rider is Californian fingerboarder Alexis Garcia !

Q. Tell a little about how you got into fingerboarding and who inspires you.

A: One day I was so bored on YouTube, I typed in ‘Tech Decks’ to see what videos I could find. The video was called “tech deck dudes” and I thought fingerboarding looked so fun! It was a trend at my school. EVERYBODY had tech decks and I wanted to be the best around. Alexis Milant and Mike Schnieder are my true inspirations to fingerboarding.

Q. How did you come to know about Prowood?

A: I think it was through a review on vicious274’s account. He review the Prowood Speedsters and his custom “2 Fingers. PEACE!” deck. I thought that was pretty sick!

Q. What do you enjoy most about being a Prowood team member?

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?

A: Stay committed! If you enjoying fingerboarding, keep doing it. (:
