PostSubject: Ambt - Monogatari Stock #2 Today!   Wed Jul 29, 2015 8:55 pm

Some of you may have seen a post on unite this morning, or information on social media. If not, you might have missed a project I'm very stoked to finally have live:


You can read more: http://www.unitefingerboarding.com/post.php?id=832
or head straight to the Ambt site: http://www.getambt.co.uk/

But if you want a little explanation...

Ambt (pronounced 'ambient') is a project I've had in my head for a long time. I've always wanted to make decks, but never managed to make it work for one way or another. I've also always wanted to merge my other interests into fingerboarding, namely my love for anime, manga, and comics. The whole thing came together thanks to FBMold, who I work with to produce part of the boards for me - as I have no space to press of shape decks. The rest of the deck creation process is done by me, and the result is a deck that comes with a fair price tag and decent quality.

The shape is inspired by a few decks I've loved over the years, and it's a medium kick shape with very low concave. You barely notice it until you need it, and then it's there. Sounds weird, but I find it amazing to ride and really comfortable whilst allowing control when needed.

The first stock drops on saturday, and decks are £11 each. That gets you a 33x101mm deck which comes with a free sheet of Weca tape and Ambt logo stickers.

I hope you guys like what you see, but I welcome all feedback. Stay tuned for more happy

love this idea (i've been making decks with anime and manga inspired graphics for myself for a while now)
the monogotari series is great! what other series do you plan on using (would love to see evangelion or ghost in the shell decks)

Looks sick, Kerry! Thought this was just a collab between unite x blosom, guess not!
I love the project you're doing, saw the guy who makes your decks offering his stuff on FFI a while back. Can't wait to see what you have in store.

Looks great, but 101mm is super long!
I'm sure many people are into it, but just not my cup of tea. Good luck with everything Kerry!

They look amazing! But, as mentioned by WantSomeSlaw, 101mm is extremely long. I would suggest shortening the wheelbase by 1-2mm and very slightly shortening the kicks? But, that said, they still look amazing and I'd love to try one!

PostSubject: Re: Ambt - Monogatari Stock #2 Today!   Thu Jul 30, 2015 3:24 am

Damn these look great! 101 mm sounds great because after you're done trashing the board after a few months you can reshape the kicks into something unique like this.
http://i.gyazo.com/231dc2ef6b22984f2abe4acaf0d9b679.jpg

One thing that scares me are copyright issues but I really doubt a Japanese company will go after a fingerboard that uses their material.

It really doesn't feel long at all, it just sounds long. I find 98 has either a tiny tiny wheelbase or kicks that are too short. Honestly, if that's your only worry I think you should try one anyway when they drop, they're really fun to ride in my opinion! @WantSomeSlaw @_jdfb

@skatemaster231 with copyright a) I intend to do much more creative things with the graphics in future so they'll be more 'my work' and thus fall under Fair Use of copyright law - like that guy who stole people's instagram pictures and sold them for like 100,000 dollars and got away with fair use when the people who's pictures they were sued him as the comment he'd posted on instagram was his own work. and b) I highly doubt they'd ever see it XD I mean if sites like teefury can get away with breaking copyright on hundreds of different geeky things each month and they've been going for years, I'm sure I can make some tiny skateboards very happy

Thanks so much though everyone! As for what's coming, you'll have to wait and see very happy

This is a really nice idea! I know anime is pretty huge so I reckon the graphics will be desirable to tons of people and the price is really on the money!

Best of luck with this project!

nope, as I said they're made in collaboration with fbmold. the mold is my design and wont be found on any other decks.

thanks though everyone! the two secret decks for stock 1 just finished drying, I'll be taking photos and taking the webshop into maintenance mode later on ready to launch with all products live tomorrow morning very happy

Everything sounds really good, I especially love the shape of the deck. Sounds quite similar to the blosom dimensions, which can only be a really good thing! The remind me of hookups decks way back when, I wanted one of those so badly!

The only issue for me, as far as I can see, is the use of paper graphics. Although I do understand the reasoning behind it, I'm still not a fan. Woodprint or real wear would totally sell me on these happy

Glad to see the first stock sold so well, fingers crossed for a Ranma 1/2 stock wink

Sneak peek of stock 2 ready for lacquer. It's a special larger stock that'll have two of each graphic rather than one, so that more people can get a chance to try these boards. Stock 1 sold out in 15 minutes so I want to give more people an opportunity to pick one up happy

More details soon!
