Sad to see finger sized go. Right now the fb market is so shit. I hate seeing legit businesses go under. You had a great impact on the fingerboard scene while you were open man.

So sorry to hear about this. Fingersized was always my first port of call when considering a new purchase. Fingers crossed (pun intended) that it will make a shocking comeback, sometime soon...

so sad to see this.

is a blow to UK fingerboarding for sure.

i remember the talks we had in the begging, and i said to you it wouldn't be easy, and that if anyone could make it work it would have been yourself.

times are really tough at the moment. people dont realize how tough it is for people with small companies.

every end has a beginning though, something ends, something new must begin.

you know your situation best, and im sure that if it wasn't the right decision you wouldn't have called it.

still.....its better to have tried than not too. (not that it makes it any better).

what you did with FingerSized was great.

long live Unite and all your work you do with it!

Shit dude this is terrible. I hope everything works out for you. Keep doing what you do man, you're a real help to the scene. The UK scene got bigger I feel like with the help of fingersized. Hopefully you can find something that will get you some cash you need, or something that will make you happy! Money is just money, being happy is what counts!

Sorry, didn't try to go all Dr. Seuss on you.

thanks for the kind words too, and thanks for the collabs we did back in the day happy

UPDATE:::::

All this stuff going out to one of the lucky people who picks up something super cheap from fingersized!

literally all that's left is a set of bushings, a set of bollie wheels, and a set of winklers. No one want them at cheap prices? If you're UK I'll even give you free shipping, I need this stuff gone shocked

When i started fingerboarding all those years ago, the uk had nothing, then this blog started which was cool but populated by immature kids (me!) and it started to die, until kerry came along and revamped it and made it awesome again. bringing unite with it, an identity that is now recognised all over fingerboarding. everything kerry has done has helped the uk scene grow and fingersized was the final missing piece, a uk based shop! which is why its so sad it has to go sad any future doings of kerrys make sure everyone trys their best to get involved, the amount of effort he puts in is mad. long live unite and the future ok the uk scene. best wish kezwald for everything good thats still to come x
