PostSubject: Fdecks   Sun Feb 16, 2014 6:06 am


Alright hey guys, I'm making this thread on behalf of my friend Fred from fdecks. He's not familiar with the forum nor how it works/how to properly make use of it and he has asked me to make this thread for him. Contact me if you have any questions about the decks/company and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability, if I am not capable of answering the questions myself I will direct you to Fred's contact info. I would like to stress that I am not the owner of fdecks nor do i produce the decks, I am only helping a friend. Here is what he has to say about his decks:

Fdecks is a proffesionnal/artistic fingerboard company based out of quebec, Canada.
The decks are made out of 5 ply veneer ( maple, exotics even dyed colours, and split plies ) and each board has its own personality; punk-rock to new school shapes.

Fdecks have a very special feature, most other boards have a 100mm+ length, but fdecks have, for even more control, a shorter length: 95mm.

Decks are made/can be made in between 32mm-34mm and we offer 2 shapes: new school (classic popsicle) and cruiser/oldschool.

There is currently a stock of 3 decks ranging from 32.5mm-34mm up on the website. Decks are $15 and have exotic bottoms as well as split plies. I also do customs, contact me through bigcartel to work out a shape, ply combo, and price.

Here's the website: http://fdecks.bigcartel.com/

Feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns,

~Fred Bordeleau~

Here are some pics of the current stock as well as some other decks:

One of the decks in stock. (exotic)

Another deck currently available. (split ply)

The third deck currently available. (exotic)

Here is an example of the oldschool/cruiser shape available through custom order:

Thanks for checking out Fdecks!

The lacquer on the 2nd and 3rd looks good. The shaping looks like it could use some work. I'd wait selling.

The lacquer on the decks doesn't seem to show to it's full extent in these pics, not sure why that is. I assure you each deck has been lacquered to perfection. The oldschool may look dull because the photo was taken from instagram and has a filter on it.  very happy

Lacquer looks amazing
Shaping looks okay, could be improved a bit.
Some shape pics would be nice too happy

Liking them cool
Only issue I have now is that they are a bit thick. Maybe a little more pressure on the mold?
Looking really good though very happy

Looking good. Aside from the other things suggested I'd suggest making sure the holes are 100% perfect.

Ryan, the holes are 100% perfect on all decks currently, the photo where the holes were off was quite old (hence why it was removed). Changes have been made since then and I can assure you all holes are 100% flawless  very happy

The holes on the decks on your site does not look flawless. They look alright, but they could definitely be cleaner.


Just take the advice you get man.

By flawless I was talking more performance wise than aesthetics (the trucks fit perfectly), all advice is appreciated and taken in to account  happy I will be sure to update Fred and let him know that you think the holes could use some work  very happy  I would just like to remind everyone I am not Fred and I am helping him out by running this thread on his behalf. Keep the feedback coming! http://fdecks.bigcartel.com/

Yeah, if he can't figure out how to use a message board I don't know how he can manage to make good decks.
