Fingerboard Ramps Soon!

Prowood Fingerboards will soon be offering fingerboard ramps and obstacles soon!

We have been working very hard to develop the best designs with superior craftsmanship so that once again we will be able to offer hand crafted, USA made, BEAUTIFUL wooden fingerboard ramps and obstacles.  It has been a long and difficult journey but we insist on only the best products for our customers so I know it will be worth the wait!

As you know, I have had a life long love of beautiful woods and with my skateboarding kids, making fingerboards was a natural next step for me!  Our family created Prowood Fingerboards in 2008 and since that time we have never stopped to look back.  We do our best, every, single day to offer you top notch products at reasonable prices.  We think our new ramps and obstacles will not be an exception to that rule.

We know that using ramps and obstacles, our friends can spend hours practicing tricks and enjoying their hand crafted Prowood fingerboards.  Do you want to do a 180 on the mini half pipe?  Yep, you can do that – and if you don’t know how, you can practice until you do!  Like to grind?  Most of our new products will have aluminum ledges that will be perfect to allow you to perfect your style! You are going to love our new fingerboard ramps and obstacles!

Lastly, we know we couldn’t do all this, as we do, each and every day, without the support of our great friends – YOU!  Thank you so much for letting me do what I love.

For now, check out this pic of our newest samples, freshly created in the workshop! In the future, you will find (maybe in early October?) at our webstore:  www.prowoodfingerboards.com.   Thanks!

Making Fingerboards on a Friday!

Fingerboards on a Friday? Hey, it is Jim Vickers here.  I’m taking a break from my workshop to drop you a quick note and say Happy Friday.

I have been making fingerboards all day and I am very lucky that I am able to do what I love.  I have some great tunes on my ipod – today it is a Black Sabbath kind of day and the machines are making all kinds of noises and I’m truly having a blast!

fingerboards all day long

Grinding a fingerboard in the workshop. Making fingerboards is what I love!

So, I’m going to get back at it.  I’ve got some new graphics I need to work on and then I am back to getting the new ramps up and going.  It’s a busy day but there is nothing else that I would rather do!

Let’s roll, and mold, and grind!  I’ve got fingerboards everywhere! For more info, check us out on facebook!

 

Obstacles and Ramps

We are counting down the days until we can unveil our new obstacles from Prowoodfingerboards. I will have 5 in the next week or so and even more after that. I will be offering all of the great fingerboard ramps and obstacles on the official Prowoodfingerboards web page and I encourage you to check for the updates next week.

Do you love to fingerboard? Do you have a favorite obstacle? Let me know so I am sure to make just what you need!

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?

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

Hello!

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.

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!
