PostSubject: Rainbow decks (quality decks from switzerland)   Tue Apr 29, 2014 7:53 pm

good day to all you fingerboarders and fingerboard enthusiastics,

i'm going to present you the company "Rainbow Decks".

i know, that this isnt going to be the best presentation because I'M NOT THE OWNER OF THE COMPANY NOR THE PRODUCER OF THESE DECKS.
of course all credits go to the official mastermind behind these decks, which is a guy from switzerland and who is not (yet) signed up on this site.

at this point in time, he's only making very few decks because not alot of people are interested in fingerboarding in general, at least where he lives and where he has his contacts so i offered him, to make a thread on this site about his decks and if there's enough interest, he'll surely start to produce alot more than right now.

all of the pictures shown in this thread are from his flickr page (https://www.flickr.com/photos/75885064@N05/) and all credits go to him -of course.

unfortunately i can't tell you alot about the story behind the company or whats the history of rainbow decks but i can tell you how i got in touch with him and i'll try to share all my information i have about the company and products with you.

my history with him goes back like 3 years. a friend of mine knew him and one day before a local fingerboard contest, he introduced me to him and we hade an nice session. we all went to the contest the next day and just had a good time. right after our runs and somewhere before the finals, my friend tol me that this guy produces his own decks and that he's sponsoring him so i came up to him and talked to him for a little while and he said, i could be on the team too. he gave me one deck and it had the coolest bottomply i've ever seen. it was a green wood which faded into some kind of yellow. i really loved it. but i've never held real contact with himm so we forgot about it. a few years later i came across a thread of his company on another forum and contaced him, asking if he'd still make decks. he saidd yes and offered to sponsor me another one.
we lost contact again and so i never got a deck.
recently i contaced him again and he said that he still had some unfinished decks laying around but his cnc mold is kinda broken and if there's no real interest in his decks, he's not gonna repair it.

he is making his own longboards now (out of a cnc longboard mold) and said, if enough people want a deck, he's gonna repair his mold.

now to the decks:

all i can say is the craftmanship is very good. by the time i got mine (3 years back), the paintjob was the on thing that was outstanding. he used many layers of clear laquer to make sure, the board doesn't get any scratches.
the board size is custom he can do anything from 100x28 to 102x32 (mm -u know how to use google!) max wide is 32 mm.
they have a same nos and tail (not liek berlinwood and most of the other companies out there).
he's a carpenter so he knows how to handle wood and he has acces to alot (and i mean ALOT) of veneers. the plies are also custom (if you want) and the basic material is maple.
the shape is pretty similar to the berlinwood, however it feels different. i can't say this any more specificly because i haven't been riding my for a long time, but as soon as i can get my hands on another one, i'm gonna test it.
i will post all the pictures now that i have. these pictures are approximately 2 years old but the boards will probably look the same.

i can't think of anything else to say so enjoy the pictures and leave your feedback.
the creator of these decks will send me a statement, some time this week and i'll try to update this thread.



P.S. from the owner: "swiss quality"

the owner just had a look through the topic and is thankful for all the nice feedback. of course, the decks can be 98mm if thats your wish and the lacquer is made out of 5 to 7 layers of scratch- proof high gloss vanish.

Hello folks
I am the owner of this Brand.
All started way back in 2005 or 2006 when i switched from techdecks to a shortwood and a berlinwood. I started to made wooden fingerboards for me and my friends and over the years my brand growed to an underground tip for fingerboards in switzerland amd germany. I sold them on contests like fast fingers and others. The i began to work as a carpenter and put my skills and knowledge into the production of swiss handmade eco friendly fingerboards and longboards. I use only certified veener and green epoxy resin to craft my popsticks.
Over the past 3 years i lost the connection to the fingerboard scene cause fingerboard.de and the biggest german forum closed their doors. Now i found fbhq and the thread about my decks. I am still using the same mold as shown in the picture.
Currently im working on a new stock
Here are some first impression what to expect in the near future:





The blank and the red one need to get laquered. I use a special antiscratch high gloss laquer as seen in the first post in this topic.
As mentioned before i also build longboards for dancing and downhill skating. The name of these deck is fenneklongboards. Put a #and the name to find them on instagram.  
I use flax fibers instead of carbon and glass. A green epoxy resin and swiss wood as the core.

To clear some facts up.
Size: max width is 32mm. I could do wider decks but i don't like those fattys. May i will make custom decks that will be wider.
The length varies because most decks i made are customs.

Veneers: i work as carpenter. So i have acces to many different woods. Just ask if you want something specific. I also can do splitplys. Dyed plys are also avaiable. I dye them on my own.

If you are interested just message me herebor on my instagram @rainbow_fingerboards

Swiss handmade precision wink

I finished 3 decks. I hope you like them. All those decks are 32mm wide.
Some detailshots showing the plys. And the reason why these decks are called rainbow decks wink
I would like to hear your feedback.
