Kabbeverb. Thats some of the strangest words ever!? I even don´t know how to pronounce it right :-D But thats maybe normal for a guy from Germany, because Kabbeverb is a danish word. Or lets say it´s not just a word, it´s a brand from Denmark. Ya heard right, a fingerboard brand Denmark. After all these years running fingerboardTV this is the first time I´ve received a deck from Denmark.
Denmark is is a Nordic country and the southernmost of the Scandinavian nations. Denmark lies southwest of Sweden and south of Norwayand is bordered to the south by Germany. The capital of Denmark is the city Copenhagen, you may have heard of. Gustav, the owner of Kabbeverb is based in a smaller town called Brønshøj. So whats up with fingerboarding in Denmakrk!? The only things in the past few years was like the BRR-Tour in 2011, 2012 and the Prison contest in Faengslet in 2016. I´ve seen a few fingerboard HQ Denmark videos as well, but thats just it.
So I´m really proud to present one more nation of fingerboarding on fingerboardTV with a fingerboard company from Denmark. So check that beast out:
This shape is a medium one in a classic popsicle shape. This deck is about 32mm wide.
And one more:
Hearing the name Gustav made me think about the movie “The Grand Budapest Hotel”. This movie is available on Netflix and I´ve watched it a few weeks ago while doing a turbo trainer session. But let´s talk about the deck. Gustav the owner of KVFB contacted me on Instagram. We talked a bit and he wanted to send me a special board, because he´s reading fingerboardTV for a couple of years now. I´m really happy about this and I really love the fact, that there is still some fingerboarding in the Scandinavian nations. I´m a big fan of the multicultural society, not just in fingerboarding.
About the deck. This one is a handpainted one for FBTV. The graphic is not available at all and in the webshop there are no other handpainted decks available. So Gustav offers graphic and mini logo decks in his webshop. The graphics look like a mixed up real wear/woodprint thing. Haven´t seen then in person so I really can´t tell. The shape of this deck is a medium one in 32mm. It´s just clean and equably. You can get wider decks at the webshop. The holes are straight and clean, you won´t have any issues mounting your truck on the board.The deck is made from 5 sheets of colorful veneer. YOu know fingerboards wich are sprayed with lacquer like 100 times and you have more lacquer than fingerboard at the end? Well, not at Kabbeverb. The deck is shiny at all but did not receive a bath in lacquer. I really like the fact because toooo much lacquer is a small thing that kills our planet too.
Well, you´re interested in Kabbeverb? Hop over to Instagram and show some love: @kabbeverb.fb If you´re from Denmark too, just hit Gustav up with a message. Maybe you could arrange some meetup. A Kabbeverb webshop is available as well: Click!
