ZEN Fingerboard Network

ZEN Fingerboard Network

ZEN Fingerboard Website
The website is currently in the process of being designed in my free time, which isn’t all that much between work and traveling. Once I have the design created, and receive my next paycheck, I will be purchasing a webhost and a domain name. The ZEN Fingerboard Website will be a conglomeration of all the various projects I am undertaking.

ZEN Fingerboard Blog
ZEN Fingerboard Blog aspires to provide the latest news from all the different fingerboard scenes from around the world. Currently, there are 8 contributors from a variety of countries representing the world fingerboard scene. Broken down, there are 4 from the United States of America, 2 from Brazil, 1 from Portugal, and 1 representing Italy. Our goal is that having a diverse group of contributors will heighten the overall reading experience and, as a result of this diversity, bring the global fingerboard community closer together!

ZEN Fingerboard Database(ON HOLD)
The ZEN Fingerboard Database will include a list of professional fingerboard companies and their riders. The goal of the database will be an easy way for companies, riders and anyone in general to view information about a specific team or fingerboarder.

Location: Baltimore, Maryland
Deck Sponsor: Noob Decks

ZEN Graphics Service
Do you want to have a professional looking logo for your fingerboard company? Or a custom-made deck with a great design, but don’t have the resources or artistic ability to pull it off?
Presenting the ZEN Graphics Service featuring custom made graphics for anything from fingerboard deck graphics, stickers to company logo design.
Whether you are an owner of a company looking to have a whole set of team graphics under a specific theme, or just a hobby fingerboard maker looking for a cool looking graphic for your deck, ZEN Graphics is the right source for you!
Prices will vary depending on the complexity of the work required. For example, a set of graphics using similar logos/graphics will be less expensive than a set of graphics that have different logos/graphics for each rider.

ZEN Fingerboard Trucks - (ON HOLD)
ZEN Fingerboard Trucks are still tentative at the moment. The cost of manufacturing the initial mold is extremely expensive and, as a result, would lead to relatively high prices in the beginning. At the moment, I am trying to find an experienced CAD designer to help design the trucks, so I can show to a die-casting company. I actually have a connection to a casting company through a friend, but I am not sure if they will cast small objects. If all goes well, there is a possibility that there will be ZEN Fingerboard Trucks!

Fingerboard Italia Blog

One of my primary goals in creating the ZEN Fingerboarding Blog (formerly known as FBWeekly) was to connect the various scenes together. Check out Fingerboard Italia Blog ran by Pietro Maltinti. It is the primary news source for the Italian scene. I have read through his blog and loved the quality. Pietro contacted me asking if he could affiliate with ZEN, and I would be more than happy to do so.

Edit: Welcome Pietro Maltinti to the ZEN Fingerboard Blog team. He will keep us updated on the Italian scene!

Flatface News

Mike Schneider posted some pictures of the new Flatface G7 wheel colors! They look really sick, and from what I've heard, they perform amazingly well.
Presenting the new G7 colors!


The 4th Rendezvous is complete, so be on the lookout for some great footage from the event.
