Fingerboarding…it’s not as dirty as it sounds

Do you guys remember fingerboards? I guess they are still around, but have died down in popularity since their late 1990’s boom. A fingerboard is an exact replica (1:8 scale) of a skateboard that you can “ride” with your fingers.

While many consider theses a 90’s toy, the first fingerboard toys were around in the 1970’s and became a novelty attached to keychains, sold in skate shops. People take their fingerboarding very seriously. There is even something called the World Snowboard Fingerboard Championship….I’m not kidding.

Radical!
