Tricks Named After Fingerboarders?

After not posting for a long time, i'm back and are going to be posting more frequently.

I've been thinking alot and watching alot of videos lately, and noticed some people, like Taylor Lucas, giving certain tricks the names of certain fingerboarders. Here they are:

A Chris Daniels: Nollie flip sex change revert or any trick including a varial.
An Ethan Ebeling: Any trick having to do with an impossible.
A Darkwood: Sw/Nollie fs bigspin

I have thought of a few on my own, and these are granted not to be as good, but...:

A Maggie: Doing a trick with your tounge out.
A Jader/Phils: Tucking your fingers to the max.
A Taylor Rosenbauer: Landing a trick with the signature head bob.
A Jay Linehan: Whenever you film a line with really good angles.
An Alex McMillan: Nollie tre/landing on fingertips.
A Mike Schneider: Getting a big package of BRR in the mail. Just kidding.

Use these from now on to enhance your fingerboarding conversations hahha.

Name Change (Again)

I decided to change the name from ZEN back to Fingerboard Weekly for a few reasons. The main reason is that the name ZEN really doesn't capture what this blog is about, which is Fingerboarding. I also noticed there was a big drop in the amount of people visiting the site as well. I also decided to change the layout. Hope you guys like the new layout template.

I will be busy with work and packing up to move to my apartment 300 miles away this next week, so there may be a lull in updates. Anyways, I got a bunch of product reviews I am in the midst of writing to keep everyone occupied!

Among the items I'll be reviewing are BRR Iron Rainbow Rail, BRR Stair Setup w/Rail, Berlin Wood Deep, Flatface G7 Wheels, and an FFRC Funbox!

Fabi Mini

Recently, everyone seems to have forgotten why they fingerboard.. Fighting and being genuine jerks to each other is the main interest of people right now.. Well Fabi has a message to say to you!
