Meeting up with people

Just letting you guys know, meeting up with people that fingerboard gives a definition to fingerboarding. I recently spent a week at Ethan Ebelings house, and really learned what true fingerboarding is.

True fingerboarding is : chilling with someone who fingerboards, talking about fingerboarding, sharing tips and tricks, teaching someone how to do a trick the other can't do, listening to music just having a "soul" sesh, doing lines, taking turns doing tricks on the same obstacle forcing you to watch someone else fingerboard without having to look through the view finder or lcd, landign a trick and watching it through the playback and getting stoked on it, landing your cleanest trick yet, landing your best combo, getting something new from a trade, and most importantly wanting to fb all the time, even if you had fingerboarded the entire day.

Keep these in mind. Even if you dont meet up with someone, you should coem in contact with a few of these things. If you dont come in contact with any of these, consider rethinking the way you fingerboard. However, meeting uop with someone will make you realize what fbing is all about.

that's what I think fingerboarding is all about...
it's not about making money
it's not about being a champion
it's not about having the best setup of the world


fingerboarding is all about having fun together!
I love jam sessions, meetings (especialli Italian meetings :P) and all this stuff!

peace and fingerboarding
