Peter R.- The deck I received is so good. Easily my favorite deck at the moment. Thanks so much!

Review: Berlinwood Regular

Berlinwood Regular w/ Nollie Metal Wheels

Appearance: The deck looks absolutely amazing. The lacquer was done perfectly smooth. All the holes in the deck were aligned perfectly to Tech Deck trucks, so I had no issue there. The sides of the board were well sanded as well. The alternating plies look cool, and the graphic I thought looks great as well. There were no visible defects in my deck, even the holes were sanded well. It’s hard not to give a Berlinwood a perfect score in the looks department. Grade: 4.0 / 4.0

Performance: My personal preference is griptape for fingerboarding, however, on this deck I probably would make an exception. Having a flat deck with griptape makes it a bit harder to pop tricks higher. Nonetheless, the board performs very well. It has a very crisp, solid pop and has yet to wear out. For griptape diehards like me, I’d probably get a Berlinwood Deep, because griptape + no concave makes tricks kind of difficult. All in all, the Berlinwood Regular is very durable deck that will last a long time with consistent performance. I’d recommend it to anyone who does not like too much concave in their deck, or is looking for a change from their Wide/Deep decks. There isn’t much a fingerboarder could ask for…except… maybe another BerlinWood! Grade: 5.5 / 6
You can buy Berlinwoods from these distributors:

Overall, I felt that the BerlinWood Regular was a very solid deck. However, next time I would use Rip Tape or FBS Smooth Tape instead of Griptape.
Score: 9.5 / 10 A

No-Comply picks up a Deal! A Wheel Company fit for the Gods?

No-Comply picked up Dave Deal for its Flex Tape team. Congrats Dave on the sponsor!

New wheel company?

Featuring Apollo Wheels founded by Jordan Trachtman. Apollo Wheels are going to be metal core wheels, which kind of resemble Eurolit Wheels in that regard, with some sort of material on the outside. With bearing wheels being the rage recently, it's nice to see a few different options for wheels. Did I say that the wheels will only cost $10??

The Hi-Adventure Fingerboarding Contest on TV!

Sick stuff, David Auster's footy at the end was insane. My favorite part is when the reporter makes an attempt to fingerboard :) It looks like everyone who participated had a great time. Brazil's scene is thriving! For more information, check out Jader's blog entry here!
