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.

How I Found Fingerboards?

Hi guys,

I am Rose and I live in Hong Kong. I have been on the Prowood Family for about a year and have been fingerboarding for around 2 years. Sure as a fingerboarder, you should still remember the first day you meet fingerboards, so today I would like to share my experience.

One day when I was hanging around in a library looking for some books. Somehow the sun shined on a magazine that was lying next to a window. I was quite surprise how the sun is like a spot light lightning up the magazine but not the others. So I picked it up, when I looked at the cover, there was this finger on a tech deck which suddenly drag my attention.

As I got back home I get onto the internet and start searching “tech deck” and “fingerboards”. I was interested in it so much that I start making my own fingerboards with rubbers and cardboard,  few months after,  I called my cousins who live in the USA to get me some of those “tech deck” and start my real fingerboarding.

I’ve enjoyed doing it so much and learned one new trick every week by watching tutorial on YouTube. From that moment, I start discovering more about fingerboards such as Prowood, BlackRiver etc.  I also start making my own videos on YouTube and opened the first Fingerboard Company in Hong Kong.
