I saw someone write that they thought that Cowply were fingerboardings Welcome Skateboards so I thought we could make a thread and try to name all fingerboard brands significant other in skateboard brands.

Cowply is Welcome Skateboards (write here why you think so maybe)

Flatface would be like Element because it's one of the first names you hear about in skateboarding/fingerboarding

Black river is Santa Cruz since they're both the OG's of their industries. While there are many old school skate brands like Alva, World Industries, etc around today none have remained as relevant as Santa Cruz. The same applies to BRR

I'd say that about BW because they make boards not ramps.
I know BRR owns BW but I'm just being picky haha

I would think Brt's would relate more to Ace Trucks.

Brutal has the Heroin Skateboards vibe.

Fingerboarder magazine is more like Transworld IMO.
Oak wheels seem like they'd be like Spitfire formula fours.
Brt's kinda look like indys to me.
PoP decks kinda remind me of 3D for some reason.

I feel like Homewood would be the Almost of fb'ing.
Reliable, perfect price for the quality, and the shape of the NM High just sticks to me as the Almost shape I'm using right now which is pretty hardcore for a skate deck.

What about Yellowood? I thought for about 15 minutes and I couldn't think of anything. :L

almost is cheap mass-produced china wood. i'd consider that the opposite of homewood.

Y trucks x4 > Krux Trucks. (Shape, style, color, etc)

Blackriver-Ramps > X- Games. (Biggest fingerboarding industry out there, throws tons of events each year, makes sick ramps, etc)

Y Wheels > Ricta Wheels (style)

Oak Wheels > Bones Wheels
