Tech Decks wooden fingerboards

Updated on January 29, 2015

A view of Tech Decks fingerboards from the wooden collectors series

Now, I have been a fingerboard fan for a long time, since when they first came out. I could not even start to imagine how many fingerboards I have had in the past.

Tech Deck finger boards are by far the biggest selling brand of fingerboards.

They have under their belt, most of the Big Famous Skateboard brands and sponsored Skateboarders supporting them, or their names on their decks.

I thought I'd share some of the best new products that Tech Deck have on the market with in the past with you. Thinking they may even become collectors items.

At the moment they are proving very popular and selling out quickly.

Advantages of The Wooden Collector Series

These are what we see as some of the main advantages of these boards.

1: These boards are made from 100% real Canadian Maple for a great quality finish.

2: Everything is included.

These fingerboards include brand trucks, wheels, griptape and also a sticker.

With many other setups of other brands only the ply is included, meaning not only are they more expensive just for the board, but then you have to buy the wheels, grip tape and trucks on top. Unless of course you want to pretend it is a finger snowboard.

3: Pro Skaters

There are the best Pro skateboarders decks. So chances are you can buy your favorite skaters actual design.

4: Pro Skateboard Brands

Most of the best skateboard brands available. Have a favorite skate brand? You can most likely get a fingerboard of that brand.

5: Made to scale

Expertly made to scale for the best realistic design

6: Price

With the advantages above the price is just one more to add to the list.

.

Some pro skaters boards, but there are many more out there

Nearly all of the most popular skateboard brands are included, each one with their own pro skater. Each design is of a real life skateboard.

All the fingerboards include wheels, trucks and grip tape. Of course all the fingerboards are to scale.

They are very well made, have a nice pop to do your ollies, flips and tricks. For me it is much more satisfying to have a real wooden fingerboard. Plastic one's just don't really feel real. Maybe that is because I was a real skateboarder so find it hard to image using a plastic board.

Foundation Skateboards present Pro Skater Corey Duffel. I like the style of the board and I've also always liked foundation too.

Baker Skateboards with pro skater Andrew Reynolds. Well I'm sure you all know and like this skateboarder. Even people that know very little about skateboarding know him.

 

What are fingerboards?

Fingerboards are mini skateboards that are used by the fingers to do skateboard tricks.

They are made from wood or plastic and have separate trucks, wheels and grip tape.

Tech Decks are normally sold as complete setups with wheels, trucks and grip tape included.

They own the right to make fingerboards with some of the best Skateboard brands and Pro Skaters.

      Very interesting. I received one for Christmas and honestly had to say that I had never heard of them before. Now I know what all of the hoopla is about. I see a collection of these in my future. Thanks for the lens.

      Very interesting. I have never seen a fingerboard... if it weren't for the internet, I wouldn't know about them at all.
