Tech Deck Terminology | 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 Fingerboarding. Tech deck terminology is important to understand
when you first get into fingerboarding because its helpful to be able to identify all the
different parts of the fingerboard, especially when you go and try to find new parts or upgrades
to your fingerboard. The first part of the fingerboard, which is
the wood part, is called the deck. And on top of that is a grip tape surface. Its either rough grip tape, which feels like
sand paper, or this foam type grip tape. We also have wheels. There are 4 wheels on a finger board and 2
trucks, and the trucks can be loosened, allowing you to turn more easily, or tightened based
on your personal preference. There’s many companies out there that offer
different types of ramps. For example, this ramp right here is called
a half pipe. It’s made by tech deck. Its basically a half pipe because it has 2
walls, each with transition on them, and it has couping at the top with a little deck,
allowing you to do tricks along the sides of the wall, on top of the deck, on either
side. and this right here is called a fun box. Basically, any ramp that’s called a fun box
is an obstacle with 2 ramps on each side connected by a flat piece in the middle and typically
you’ll see a fun box that either has a ledge going down it or in this case, a rail right
in the center.
