PostSubject: Just getting back into fingerboarding, need some info and help!   Thu Aug 13, 2015 8:38 pm

So, I came from a much forgotten era of fingerboarding. My last "real" setup was a berlinwood old mold extra wide, td wides, summit tuning, and fbs, and G7A's. I had moved on from fingerboarding around 2009 or so. I just recently got back into it. My friend gave me a complete china setup, and it's honestly isn't the worst thing I've ever used, but I'm needing something wider, I've noticed that nowadays the regular width for decks is 32 and up, I'm looking for a good, long lasting setup that I can get used to and keep for a while until I know if I'm forsure going to get back into fbing hardcore. It's a lot of fun and I had forgotten how much fun it actually was. So, if you guys could help me out with some information, it would be great! Thanks so much! happy

you can't go wrong with a berlinwood wide. Thats what i am currently using with 32mm black river trucks and winkler wheels. Thats my personal preference but you will get a lot of good feedback here. check out flatface for all of your fingerboarding needs.

the only thing i think you'd really be in need of is a new deck. keep the china trucks and wheels for now. the majority of boards are priced around $30-$40 nowadays. you can try and get a deck second hand from someone in the bst section of the forum , instagram (some scammers on there so beware) or on ebay.

I'd also check eBay and even Instagram for cheaper secondhand "good" decks.  I'd probably search "Berlinwood" for either of those routes because that will probably bring up even more than just Berlinwood decks.  A good secondhand deck usually goes for about 25 bucks but you may be able to find something cheaper

P rep are just china decks all jazzed up im pretty sure....

I have one myself there quite terrible. sad

If you're looking for not so much of a big brand name and actually a cheap deck id try some companies in the banner or something like NeztekFB Australia sells awasem decks for about 20 bucks a pop to around 30$ beautifully hand made. Can even get customs And compleats for like 40$

In my experience id just get a brand new deck u can find them for about 20$ upwards to 50$ all nicely handmade decks from reputable companies just small not massive ones.

If you're going to buy a second hand big brand deck your probably looking at the same price for a brand new one from a small company and there just as good if not better afro

Hope this helps happy
