How to Pick a Tech Deck | Fingerboarding


Hi. My name is Taylor Rosenbauer. I’ve been traveling all over the United States
to fingerboard competitions, demos, and I’ve appeared on MTV and just having a great time
with this really fun hobby. I’m taking a trip to Germany, competing at
the world championships for fingerboarding. Today I will be demonstrating finger-boarding. One very important thing when you first begin
finger boarding, is finding a Tech-Deck, or any fingerboard, thats right for you. The best place to start with that is with
Tech-Decks, because they’re relatively inexpensive and they have basically the main types of
fingerboards that you would get anywhere, just to get a feel for the different kinds. This is a wooden fingerboard, as you can see,
with soft grip tape on the top, its foam grip tape offered by Tech-Deck. And then this one, on the other hand, is plastic,
as you can see, with rough grip tape. And this wood one has a lot more shape, theres
a more concave and the kicks go up a lot more than the plastic one. Really, you can combine the two, um, you can
have a wooden fingerboard with rough grip tape or vise versa. And really just try out different types and
find out whats best for you, because in the end it really all comes down to personal preference. Tech-Deck usually makes skinnier boards around
28 to 30 mm, while other companies can even go up to 32-33 mm. As for the price of fingerboard, Tech-Decks
can go from, anywhere from $4 up to, I believe, $12, while other fingerboards, especially
ones made out in Germany can go up to $150 for even a complete.

  2. @PEZSkateVideos According to me this sport is popular amongst skateboarders. For example, I originally started skateboarding and then had an urge to fingerboard. So that is most likely the reason that people starte fingerboarding. Hope I answered your question!
