Some days ago I´ve received a message from Jakob on facebook. He asked me if I would like to do a review about one of his Hütte 35 decks. I said yes and one day later (shipping in Germany) I´ve received a package from him.
In the package was a handpainted cruiser deck. I´ve checked the Hütte 35 Instagram page (@huette35) and the artwork on the deck was made by Jakob´s girlfriend. So let’s have a look at a nice handpainted cruiser deck:
The shape is a deep, well defined shape. I really like flat shapes on normal fingerboards, but in my opinion cruiser and oldschool decks should have a deep shape. You need a deep shape to handle bowls and other “hard to ride” spots.
And one more:
Hütte 35 is a one fingerboarder company from Germany. Jakob makes all the decks by hand. Ok, this time his girlfriend did the artwork. Everything else is made by him. I really like the deep brown wood and the owl on the bottom ply. The deck is overall really artsy and well done. Jakob got a lot one of a kind decks on his instagram acount. Go and show some love @huette35 ! There is a facebook page too: Click!
The last few weeks got more and more back in the days vibes. The scene is getting smaller again and back in the days there were “hundreds” of german deckmaker. I think small companies like Hütte 35 still got that vibe. Like the time before the first big boom hits the fingerboard scene. I really appreciate the work the “one man shows” do for fingerboarding even as the big companies contribution to the scene. The scene needs ya all!
Now! Go and check out Hütte on instagram and show some love. Or order something. Or order something and show some love. Or show some love and order something. No matter what you do, it only takes a few seconds and keeps the scene vivid aaaaaand Jakob will have fun reading your comments and getting some new followers and likes.
Thx a lot Jakob for this deck! Keep this going!
