At the Blackriver-Store birthday party Gretel came over and gave me a little box. I was really surprised because I haven´t seen something like this in fingerboarding before. To be honest, Gretel is the best miniature item builder in the fingerboard scene and this is his latest creation, the box:
I can´t believe he got a branded symbol on this super fine cardboard – not bad!
In the box – I´m not sure if the box is the package for the cube – was a Big Beudl cube keychain:
And one more:
I really like the fact that all the stuff is so basic. You know cardboard boxes for sure but nobody has created them for fingerboarding before. And all the details like the branding on the site are so perfect. Good job!
As I told you, Gretel creates great stuff. Most of you have seen the small Blackriver-Parks, couches and more. He creates the stuff you need for the most realistic fingerboard spot you could build. These item are pure gold for your videos to get the pure skateboarding look while fingerboarding. He creates a small reality around your fingers and this is really unque. Gretel does not only make boxes. There are a lot of ramps available at Big Beudl on facebook or at most of the events.

Thx a lot Gretel. Can´t wait to see what you create in 2017 buddy!

Not that long ago I ´ve started chatting with @redwolffb on instagram. Keelan is the head behind this insta acoount and even some more stuff. Red Wolf FBS and Wysocki Wheels. You´re thinking what the fuck? Where came the name Wysocki from? Well, Keelan, the owner, is called Wysocki with his last name. So he asked me to do a review about his all new and redesigned Wysocki Wheels and I said yes. So check out the Wysocki Wheels “Midnight Emerald:
And one more:
“Wysocki Wheels are made of urethane just like real skateboard wheels and are offered in a variety of different colors. The wheel is available in 99A durometer, a special Wysocki wheel urethane blend that is not too soft but not too hard (perfect for shredding). They are designed for use with Blackriver trucks and Dynamic Trucks, and with mini washers they also work great on Y-Trucks and Tech Deck longoard trucks. Wysocki Wheels are handmade in Wisconsin by Keelan Wysocki.”
As I told you in the beginning of this post, these Wysocki Wheels are the all new and redesigned version. The wheels are on the marked for long time in generell, but Keelan stopped the “old production” and invented everything new. He got a fully new product with this version and now it´s possbile to choose the wheelsize, the durometer, the amount of bearings (single/dual) and the color for sure. You´re not a fan of this colorway? Well, no problem! Check out the other colors:
Get what you like and even a deck!? Check out the full product line: Click!
Doing a comparison to other wheels is always hard. The Wysocki Wheels remind me totally to Joycult wheels. But the urethane is harder and the bearing in the wheels (single bearing) is centralized. So this is the point you´re coming closer to Oak wheels, but these wheels are not as hard as Oak´s. So the Wysocki wheels are the solution between Joycult and Oak – based on size, the urethane and the position of the bearing (my opinion). The wheels are perfect made for Blackriver or Dynamic trucks. On YTrucks you will need some FBS spacer for the perfect rolling.
Another thing I need to tell you, I´m still surprised how quick the wheelset was shipped to my mailbox. Only a few days for half the globe? While christmastime??? Not bad!
Thx a lot Keelan for these wheels! You guys should follow him on instagram: @redwolffb and check out the webshop: Click!
