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.

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.




Updates – New Graphics and Ramps


It has been a bit busy with trying to get a kiddo off to college, 2 others to start their school years here and another one moving off to Colorado. I’m still making boards, but also juggling a lot of other things.. and NOT (sadly) taking the time to update my posts here.

Our Team Captain, Jacob, has an awesome new Pro-Model board available. Check it out and let me know what you think. Sadly, our previous captain, Phillip, has finally retired as he is now working full time, going to school etc. Sometimes, life does get in the way of fingerboarding.

So, I’m back to focusing on the business and getting us prepped for the upcoming season. I’ve got a few new graphics I want to offer and I am getting ramp samples from some a local supplier in the next week. I will be super excited if the quality turns out as expected and my goal is to be able to start to offer ramps and obstacles on the site again, by September 1.

Fingerboard Designs

Post your thoughts below on these fingerboard design ideas.

Ok, for now, I’m looking for feedback on these graphics. Post your comments below!

Thanks and I hope to chat again soon!

Holiday Shipping Update


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.
