I thought I open this topic about FBS as I used to have one like this back in days at FFI as well.

Website is still: www.fingerboardstore.de

You can change the language (German/English) and the currency (EUR, CAD, USD, GBP) on the top of the page next to the FBS Logo.

I'm working on some new stuff that will be released during 2016 so I will post something about that here for sure. Meanwhile I will use this topic to update you about what's new at FBS.
Since a couple of weeks I'm trying to get more smaller brands on FBS, so besides me checking out different brands you might have any suggestions as well. So this topic is for - lets call it - generell suggestions?
Feel free to let me know what you think about FBS and what could be better.
Hope you guys like the new website. wink

As always, if you have questions regarding a specific order please send me an email instead of sending a message via social media.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And now to the first news.

Yesterday evening this years XMAS bundles dropped at FBS:




And there is still this going on (in case you didn't saw it already) for everyone who's not into getting a XMAS bundle.
You can find more info about that on the FBS blog (Link)

Sick! FBS is such a well respected Co! Glad to see you showing some love to the smaller Company's flower

So what would be the process for having a Company like mine on FBS?
Like what the Profit of each sale, how much percentage do you take from each sale? I would defiantly be able to produce a couple decks for FBS if your up to it very happy  My Instagram is @Skatecandyfb and Skatecandyfb.com

@azskater234 Well, I didn't expected that someone would ask about getting their own products on FBS but I guess many people have the same question.

So, as you know all companies on FBS have some kind of a unique feature like hand painted decks, unique material, professional graphics and so on. All of them are made by companies which give back to the fb scene.
The way new companies get featured on FBS works like this:
I get to know about your company because you have something unique.
Then I follow you on Instagram or where you are most active to checkout what it's all about.
I will order something from you and try it myself. If I like it and you seem to be legit and others are also hyped about your stuff I will send you a message asking if you would be interested in getting your product on FBS as well. The prices I discuss individualy with everyone.

An example for that is Chubz Bushings. I ordered some bushings like 2 month ago and I'm still using them on my bowl setup - they are soooo good haha. The swirl bushings are something nobody else is doing, others are as hyped about the bushings as I am so I asked him about getting some sets for FBS.
A lot of people asked me if I could get Chubz on FBS because they don't like the order process (only by DM on Instagram) or they don't want to order from the US or for whatever reason.

So that's how it works most of the time. I always take a look at requests like yours but most of the time I have to say that it's nothing for FBS at the moment. I try to encourage people to stay making their stuff but if it's nothing outstanding it has no chance to get on FBS. With FBS I try to get the best brands - and the ones that give back - in fingerboarding in one place.

Your decks look nice and I guess they will performe well, but with fingerboards it's really hard to stand out of the crowd. I hope you don't get discouraged I just wanted to give you a honst answer that really is some kind of advise for you - and others who might had the same question - instead of just saying no.

Ahhhhh!
No problem! I get what you mean about uniqueness and stuff drunken Been working on some pretty crazy original stuff that has never been done before, so watch out when they get released flower


FBS is the bomb btw, i have tried it several times and of course it is out of this world affraid

Hey guys & girls (Hi Mallory!),

finally the lock nuts collabo I was working on with Clark from Karat Fingerboarding is online.
One set contains 6 lock nuts with improved, extra strong nylon rings. Very similar to your skateboard lock nuts. The good thing about them is that the nylon rings don't squeeze out of the nut itself - only if you have overtighten them. They are 7,80€ and with shipping costs (anywhere world wide) they are 9,50€ that's around $10.30 at the moment.

If you want to read more about the lock nuts and the collabo itself click here: >>FBS X KARAT Lock Nuts<<



Another thing you might have seen on my Instagram (>> Link <<) and on unitefingerboarding (thanks for sharing @kerryDETH) are the photos of this new Shen-inspired bench:


First stock of 10-20 benches will be online on February 1st. The red top is made of some granite like material and the white bottom is a special made concrete mix. They will be 25€ (around $27) and so far limited to 40 benches - hope I can make some different style obstacles with that material in the future as well.

Hope you like the news - enjoy!

@Danny H: With the bubble wrap and everything I guess it will be a small DHL package. That will be around 9€ within Europe.

There is no coupon code at the moment. There was only once a discount during holiday season last year.
