This might be for the older heads, but anyone here remember Shortys Digidecks?
I had a few of these back in the day.

Yup, same here! I remember seeing adverts for them in Thrasher (or maybe Transworld) but never actually saw any for sale sad

HA! I haven't looked at the online Fingerboarding scene probably since '99-2001ish

I'm amazed at how much it's evolved! Wooden fingerboards!? shit is crazy now haha it's awesome

I've never stopped fingerboarding (with tech decks), i have an office job and have always had a few in my desk, but thing are at a whole other level!!

Roger I'm the same way! I'm 27... I remember Digidecks, I thought they were a Tech Deck rip-off so I never bought one >_< . I remember a few skater friends had them though. The boards now-a-days are sick though and way easier to perform with then the Tech Decks. Have you purchased any of the new wooden finger boards? Or would you like to try one out?

I haven't purchased any wooden boards yet was thinking about getting a FlatFace or Black River - definitely looking to try one out though.

Yea dude you should! If you have Instagram look up CaliFingers he makes some really good decks for under $20. Also in regards to trucks/wheels, if you start out on cheap stuff you'll most likely upgrade. So start with the good hardware and you'll save in the long run. However that's if money is not an object haha[/quote]

blackriver trucks are the way to go but they are around $65. If you don't want to spend that money, just use tech deck wides from a longboard and buy bushings
