At the ASI Berlin contest a few weeks ago I came in touch with some fingerboarding people from Russia I did not know before. We were talking about the scene in Russia and I told about my thoughts, that the scene in Russia is growing fast at the moment because there are new companies, events and you see a lot more output from russian riders on the internet. I really like this fact.
However, even before I went to Berlin, I´ve recieved a new fingerboard deck. Surprisingly this deck was made in Russia by a guy called Nikita and his company called ROUND|SIDE Decks. I haven´t heard of ROUND|SIDE Decks before so I was really interested in fingerboarding products from Russia. Since I don´t understand the language at all, I´m not checking russian websites on daily basis. SO let´s have a look at it:
This is the Side B mold, that means it´s mellow like a real skateboard.
And one more:
This deck is a deck with a real wear graphic on it. The shape is called the SIde B mold and it´s mellow like a real skateboard. Thats something really realistic! The decks are 100% handmade and pressed in a hydraulic press with 10 tons. The package of this deck is made from cardboard. Every deck comes in such a package and includes some really cool small stickers and a sheet of tape. The package is simple and looks fancy = good job.
The shape of the deck is mellow as I said. This is something for the flatshape lovers out there! The colors of the real wear graphic are solid and the top ply is made from a really nice zebra exotic wood. All the edges on the deck are well done.
Nikita does not only make decks. There will be screw mount boardrails out soon. This graphic deck is available in some color mixes on the ROUND|SIDE website right now: Click! Support fingerboarding in Russia and show some love and likes on Instagram: @roundside

THX a lot for this deck Nikita. The work you do for the russian scene helps the worldwide scene growing. You´re on the right way!
