Los Angeles is on place #2 of the biggest cities in the US and at the moment I would say that California is the hotspot #1 in fingerboarding on this planet. I´ve been once to L.A. and this city is just crazy! As I told you guys more than once I liked this coast of the US more than the “other one”. No hate, I´m just a fan of sunshine and all these California girls.
Los Angeles Fingerboards are named like this, because this brand started in L.A.. @losangelesfingerboards got not only the attention of the scene because of the decks he made, he made some of the best replicas of skateboarding spots in fingerboard size. On the instagram site there is just more than fingerboard decks. You guys would be stupid not checking @losangelesfingerboards
Let´s have a look at some fingerboard deck. Today We will start with the second deck of four. It´s a real wear graphic deck from LAFB called “Flying Fortress”, check that beast out:
This deck is made in the “super” shape. Low concave, medium kicks and 34mm wide.
And one more:
The real wear graphic is sharp and colorful. It´s plotted perfect oon the deck and the quality of the print is super nice. On this one you have a little LAFB lettering on the site of the deck.
Let´s talk about the craftmansship of the second deck: And again PERFECT. Only one word, PERFECT.
The countersinks are straight and so fucking clean, you won´t get cleaner countersinks in heaven.
Talking about the craftmansship, you need to talk about the sanding job on the edges. Every company has their own style of sanding edges. I´ve never seen a sanding job with this sort of round edges ever before. These edges are just smooth, clean and super round. Like on a realy skateboard. It seems like he is watching the curves of California girls while sanding. I had a lot fingerboard decks in my hands within my “fingerboarding career” but I´ve really seen such round edges on a fingerboard. I´m really stoked.
LAFB offer 4 shapes. Thats the reason why I´ve recieved 4 decks. LAFB is more than just decks, it´s miniature art you can use.
How to order? Well, a few different sorts of decks are available on the website. There are a lot different graphic decks available at the moment. This graphic is in stock too: Click! You guys and girls should really follow the instagram site to get the latest news about events, crazy replicas and the next stock. You really won´t regret!
THX a lot for these decks. The next review will be up soon!
