Introduce Yourself!


Hey all, completely forgot I haven’t done this so yeah,

My name is Elliott, I’m from the UK, London area to be specific. I’m 21 years old and have been fingerboarding since 2009 ish (I used to be awful), but took it a bit more seriously in 2010, 2011. Buying better gear, actually trying to improve etc. I took a long break in 2013 ish and have only just returned in the last month or so. I also skate but am nowhere near as good haha. I’m big into music, play guitar and bass.

I used to make videos years ago on my old channel (MrElliottBlock) but have taken those videos down since. I wasn’t nearly as good as I am today.
The only videos of me left on Youtube are on my friend Rory’s channel (@Toebex)

I will replace them on my newly made instagram account (@1510eb) I’m still getting used to it all so give me time :joy: I’ve managed to make an edit and a few random clips so far.

I’ve met so many great people through fingerboarding and I’m looking forward to making many more. Hopefully we can get some more events going in the UK! Shout outs to Xi, @Rthecruz, @Toebex, everyone on here and the /r/fingerboarding Discord.

It’s nice to see FFI back, I use to be on FBHQ all the time, I had an account on the old FFI but never really used it properly. I’ve missed the forum life.

But that’s about it really. I’m always around if you wanna chat or chill.

Cheers lads.

Hi everyone! My name is Antonio González and I’m from Spain. I have been fingerboarding for 4 years and I love it. Fingerboarding is my life. I’m always making new ramps, or filming videos (which I never post xD) or watching videos on YouTube. My favourite trick is treflip crooked. I think that we have to change the vision that people have about fingerboarding, and this is a good place to do that! So, I’m glad to be here!


Sa serais cool mais je dois encore pratiquer un peu :sweat_smile:


Sup bitches. I’m Jess Manyoky, 22 years old currently going to school in Philly as Drexel University.

I started fingerboarding around 05/06 and joined FFI in late07/early 08. Damn I missed this place and I’m so happy that I decided to type in the address to see what’s up. The countless hours I spent on this forum back in my middle school days are a time in my life that I’ll never forget. Truly made some memories and friends for life from those times.

Hey everybody! I’m David Turner. I’m 24 years old, and have been fingerboarding down in South Jersey since 2008.

I organized several fingerboard meetups in the Philly area when I was in high school, the largest having around 20-30 people attend from the tri-state area and New York. I basically dropped out of the scene around 2010, but I’ve been lurking and watching videos and coming to Airflo Rails Tour stops whenever I get the chance. Fingerboarding has been a really integral part of my life, crazy to think I’ve been doing it now for 10 years.

Glad to see FFI back! Hopefully I can rejoin the scene and get to learn more about this hobby of mine!

Hey y’all I’m jordan. I live in Minnesota and I got my first fingerboard in 2007 and it’s been a on and off on going hobby since then


Welcome to ffi bro :facepunch::black_heart:


Hi, I’m Xi from Beijing.

I started fingerboarding from around 2000 with a non-TD plastic fingerboard.

I was part of FFI before, and was just leaving home to go to university, but I needed my home PC with the DV interface card to be able to capture video from my MiniDV tapes so I didn’t really post much (HAHA REMEMBER TAPES?) I got myself a Berlinwood, Substance wheels and Arctic tuning (still have this setup in good condition) but couldn’t really contribute much so I was deleted.

One day, I found FingerboardHQ and found an event in Manchester UK. Despite knowing no one in the online scene at the time, fingerboarding was such a strong passion I turned up anyway and made loads of cool friends. The UK scene was seriously awesome. Love you guys.

The first event just made my love for fingerboarding even greater than before and I started to get hyped and posted some new videos. For the first time, I had a little acknowledgement from peers and many respected fingerboarders. I still think it’s hilarious I got sponsored without having a digital HD camcorder, but I have full gratitude to Close Up for all their support. Also, thanks to Bart Dewulf - I will pay you back, dude!

After that, I’ve dipped in and out of many online fingerboard communities over the years, and although I had an account on the new FFI a while ago, I’ve been a bit busy and just got round to posting now. Even though my online activity has sometimes fallen off, I’ve never stopped fingerboarding. I haven’t really been on Instagram either but might make a new account if I have the time.


I remember you Og bastard!


@cdplaya0 i speak to Travis once a month, dudes still the coolest - he’s really into music production so if you want him to response kind of promptly then mention something like that heehee


Hi everyone,

I’ve been fingerboarding for around 2 years and am loving it. Not too many fingerboarders nearby so it’s nice to see a forum with others.


Hi, all.

My name’s Greg and I’m from Dublin, Ireland. Started fingerboarding back in 2008. Went off it for the longest time and hoping to get back into it for casual boredom purposes. Thanks.


Hello Everyone!

My name is Cory or Cory R as most people from the old FFI would remember me by. I started fingerboarding back in 2007. I joined the original FFI in Summer of 2008. I went to Rendezvous 4-11? and a few spaced out. I fingerboarded from 2008 till I went to college in 2011. I then got back into FBing in 2014 for a few months (Went to a rendezvous again around that time and fell in love with it again) but then I quickly stopped due to still not being done with college and life stuff. Then this year I picked it up again and I really do not plan to stop this time :smiley:

My goal this time around is to give back to the community that gave so much to me when I was younger in any way I can :v:

I misread that last part as “casual bedroom purposes”. It makes sense if you think about it!
