PostSubject: Tech Deck Forum ( A place to reminisce )   Thu Sep 01, 2016 8:06 pm

Who was on board during the days of the Tech Deck forum? Im 23 now and just picked a fingerboard back up ( Fingerboarding saved my life ) I had to be younger than 14 at the time....

Man has this completely evolved.. I remember the days when we were bootlegging our own parts customizing trying to make the tech deck better. It evolved into making decks wheels I remember so many things that are now offical branded parts ! I want to say I remember Riptape when the dude that started it was just doing old skool snail mail ordering with pay pal !

Fingerboarding is just as fun as I remember.. if not even more fun.. Hell I even picked up my skateboard from 2007 and started hitting the actual skate park..

Just some food for though.

PHX AZ USA cheers.

Tech Deck forum was where I got my start! That place was so fun while I was on there, even though I had no idea what the fuck I was doing. FFI was a really big upgrade though once I finally got an account on there.

I remember when FFI came out and I remember that it was pretty "Exclusive" they wouldnt accept me because I was just your average joe I couldnt afford any of the badass stuff and my parents didnt want to support my habit lol..

I remember I finally copped a "morningwood" fingerboard it was dope!!

It was on the Tech Deck forums where it all got started for me around 8 years ago. After that I was on another fingerboard forum for years (I think it was called Fingerboard Collective but I can't remember.) Right before I quit I had finally got accepted into FFI, I come back years later and its completely dead.

I was on a he techdeck forums many moons ago. Back when Keith aka Disco frog posted all the time but never posted any FB videos ever.

Oh and anyone remember Ryan (Batman360) or gabe4baker? I remember Gabe was pretty good and I'd love to find his insta or something.
