“Jason Bard and Jesse Braun!
Welcome to the team guys! Sorry that this is so un-professional. You know.. No fancy pictures or anything. Tongue
These two are incredible at what they do. They have a great outlook on the scene, are active, and enjoy fingerboarding more than anyone else i have seen. They truly represent Motive. Fun in fingerboard before anything else! They also are extremely good friends, so it just makes their fingerboarding more fun to do, and watch! If you havent gotten a chance to subscribe to their channels, they are below!
Ill be picking up a few new riders here and there too. I will also be hosting tryouts to give other people chances.
Ultimately. You guys can expect quite a bit from the Motive team. We will try to release full lengths, and montages. But all of this is still in the works. But in the end, i want this to be a team that everyone can enjoy; Whether youre a part of it or not. Smiley
Ill PM you guys the logo to put in your sig. Optionally, you guys can just put “motive” in your sig too. Whatever floats your boat!“

– Heyho, my name is Danny Friedrich. I come from a small village in Germany.
I really love to fingerboard everyday, film and edit new videos and all the other things like hanging arround with my friends or go skating in summer.
How do you get in touch with fingerboarding?
– About 2 years ago I got a Tech Deck and searched fingerboardvideos on youtube.com.
I found your channel (youtube.com/user/dermordinhimself) and I was so fascinated what you could do with a fingerboard. So I tried it, every day.
Whats your current setup?
– I haven’t any favorite trick, I love to build creative spots and ride them as I like.
Do you have any favorite rider or a video that influenced you?
– For me, the Wikingercup Vol. III was the best and most chilled event, but of course FF13 was insane, too. It was a great time!
And finally do you want to thank someone?
– Yeah, I want to thank all the fingerboarders out there, who support the scene.
Big Thanks to my best friend Philipp. Thanks to Daniel and all the other guys, you know who you are! And of course Andre Coral for beeing such a nice guy! Thank you man!
Last but not least thank you so much for the great work on fingerboardTV. I love it, keep it up!

“The American Music Awards took place a few weeks ago, and A-list celebrities were there in full force.
Guess what? Tech Deck was there too! And believe it or not, those in attendance just had to get their fingerboarding fix. We gave out Tech Deck boards, and even had a fingerboarding park set up for them to shred!
We al…so wanted to do something positive for a good cause- we had Paul Rodriguez and Ryan Sheckler skateboards on hand for celebrities to autograph, which will be used to raise money for Autism Awareness.“

“Yellowood 2011 Graphic collection
Finally we have everything ready, this is only half of the complete collection, the rest will be released around the middle of 2011. Yellowood is a creative playground so we want to thank everyone evolved in the making of these graphics especially Masserra for his pro model, Michael for Loz pro model, Ricardo for the 2 row of graphics and Colin Harris for the Portuguese Man-of-war graphic.. great work guys, the rest of the graphics was done by myself. We will also bring into the new collections 1 graphic from the past editions but in different colours, so we brought the hydrant series from back in 2007, since date we have created the total of 84 different models
Hope you guys like it.“
“This is our new packaging everything from design to production was developed by me and this was a big challenge for the last months. In the beginning of the creation we had a lot of information and graphic elements but ended up with almost nothing… we wanted the deck to speak for it self and that you could look at it from various angles to see the plyes and the mold, almost like the deck was floating on the package. We had to develop a huge metal mold for this and it was very expensive, the material we use is a recycled plastic and it isn’t harmful for the environment.
This is also a big step forward in the quality of our product, now we entered the world of professional packaging.
Yellowood Slimtape, our tape is now much better than before and we will start to sell it in packs.
As you can see we have been working hard without creating much of a hype, we have been concentrated on what we need to develop and in creating new ideas, hope you guys enjoy it. All this new stuff will be on the website starting on Friday, 3 of December.“
