Getting Started with Fingerboarding: Learning the Basics Tricks  

Are you ready to embark on an exhilarating journey into the world of fingerboarding? If you've ever dreamed of becoming a pro skater or are simply looking for a cool new hobby, fingerboarding is the perfect place to start. In this guide, we'll walk you through the basics and help you kick-start your fingerboarding adventure.

Why Choose Fingerboarding?

Fingerboarding is more than just a fun pastime – it's an art form, a sport, and a creative outlet all rolled into one. The best part? You don't need a massive skate park or a full-sized skateboard to get started. All you need is a fingerboard, and you're good to go. With its smaller size, it's a fantastic way to practice tricks, develop balance, and build finger dexterity. Whether you're a kid or just a kid at heart, fingerboarding offers endless excitement.

Choosing the Right Fingerboard

To begin your fingerboarding journey, you'll want to get your hands on the right gear. At Spitboards, we offer premium fingerboards crafted to perfection. Our boards are designed for ultimate performance, complete with concave control, real wear graphics, and high-quality bearing wheels for that authentic skateboarding feel. When you ride Spitboards, you're in for a fingerboard experience like no other.

The First Trick: Ollie

Let's dive into your first trick – the Ollie. This fundamental maneuver sets the stage for countless other tricks in the fingerboarding world. Here's how you can master it:

  1. Finger Position: Place your index finger on the tail of the board and your middle finger on the edge of the grip tape.
  2. Pop the Tail: Quickly flick the tail down by pressing with your index finger and then pop it up by bending your middle finger.
  3. Slide Your Fingers: As the tail goes up, slide your fingers towards the nose of the board.
  4. Level Out: Level the board out and land back on all four wheels.

It might take a few tries to get it just right, but once you land your first Ollie, you'll feel a rush of accomplishment like no other.

Pop Shove-It: Adding Style

After mastering the Ollie, it's time to up the ante with the Pop Shove-It. This trick adds a bit of flair to your fingerboarding style:

  1. Start Like the Ollie: Begin with the same finger placement as the Ollie.
  2. Pop and Flick: Pop the tail of the board while simultaneously flicking your wrist to make it spin 180 degrees.
  3. Catch It: As the board completes the spin, catch it with your fingers and land smoothly.

The Pop Shove-It is a trick that'll make you stand out at the fingerboarding park and is an excellent way to showcase your skills.

Your Fingerboarding Journey Begins

Now that you've learned your first tricks, it's time to hit the fingerboarding park and practice. Start with simple obstacles, gradually work your way up to complex tricks, and don't forget to have fun along the way. Fingerboarding is all about creativity and expression, so let your imagination run wild.
