I have been fingerboarding for wayy over a year but haven't had the time or willing to practice as much.. so im still struggling on basics (heelflips are out of guestion and flips are horrible very happy ) but after joining this forum i've gotten a new start at all this !  cheers

Edit: oh and the first trick i ever learned was horrible looking sketchy pressure inward heelflips

My first deck, was a No Comply m2 Wide.
First set of professional bearing wheels, were Roll 9's
Never been featured on a blog.
I've spent over $3,000 on fingerboarding products.
I've never bought a brand new set of brts all of them were given to me, or traded for.
I've never used a brr park, witchcraft bushings, temple, weca, g14, etc.
I fb a lot.

PostSubject: Re: Fingerboarding Confessions    Wed Jul 30, 2014 7:05 pm

I buy way too much fingerboard crap (though Im sure people have more)
I never watch fingerboarding videos
I also just read on the forum more than I post
I rarely use my Blackriver ramps and just sesh basic or household obstacles
I also bring setups to the bathroom
I am a freak about my graphics and do everything I can to not let them scratch off.
Crazy impatient about shipping...
etc. etc. haha

PostSubject: Re: Fingerboarding Confessions    Wed Jul 30, 2014 10:29 pm

my nollie tres are waaaay better than my regular tres

I like my homemade decks over a lot of professionally made decks

I've never been to a fingerboard event and never will go to one

I prefer flatground tricks over rail/any other tricks

I took a 4 year fingerboard hiatus

none of my friends know I fingerboard and I will never tell them

I plan on quitting soon because fingerboarding is not nearly as fun as it was 6+ years ago. also there are arguments on here and other places so often and it gets annoying after a while (although I must admit I like reading the company drama like the whole Fireflame stuff)

Once I quit selling my creamy goo tape I'll give out my source to someone to sell their own tape

I'm really sorry to hear that Milk... :/
My confession: I've owned a set of Oak RV vivid purple wheels, and have owned them since 2012... I still haven't been able to get them to wear in right, there's ALWAYS a bump or flatspot in one of the wheels. Just today I had to shred off a half a millimeter of material to try and fix yet another flatspot I out into one of the wheels.. Twice.
That's twice, in one day.

I hate filming, I can't ever land shit once that camera turns on...
I'm pretty sure if I could still skate I wouldn't be fingerboarding.
I spend way to much money on fingerboarding.

i've only been using my own boards lately because their my preference
i've been fingeboarding for 5 years (or something like that)
i used the same setup for 2 years when i started so much it chipped the nose and tail
my first trick was a varial heelflip five minutes after buying my first tech deck
i own too many big obstacles that i don't have the space or time to use
i started fingerboarding around the time of losing the ability to skateboard because of my bad knees
i rarely post here but check the forum almost daily

Rereading it I guess I did word it funny. Haha my bad b. I love you

I love this thread

-Don't own BRT's
-I have brand new BW and YW in the boxes. Not sure why.
-I've been fingerboarding and skateboarding on and off since 2000.
-I'm very picky when it comes to decks I ride, if I don't like the way it looks I'll take it apart and make a new one.
-Fb is two part for me, I enjoy being creative with deck making as much as I like fingerboarding.

I set my filming settings at random because I have no idea what half the crap on my camera actually does.
I'm very lazy when it comes to learning new tricks.
I hate playing S.K.A.T.E over video calls because I lose interest really fast.
I've never snapped a board.
I just jumped on the skate grip bandwagon.
I don't own any good xacto knifes because I ended up accidentally sanding the blade down while cutting skategrip on the grit side -_-

I've never owned a set of BRTs or ytrucks
I bought Planktoon Rool Wheels about a month ago, but they don't work with td style trucks so I haven't used them yet
It took me a few months to learn kickflip
I can't figure out how to 360 pop shove it :/
