Fingerboards appeared for the first time in 1985 (back then it was only a key-chain) in a famous Lance Mountain video part. They have been hand-made for almost 15 years in Europe and America, by skateboard geeks and enthusiasts! The practice of fingerboarding remained quite unknown until 2000, date of release of the first "light version" of a miniature skateboard (a cheap plastic replica that did not bring the satisfaction of nowadays models).

Close Up "finest fingerskateboards" was created in 2006.
These new decks get now different shapes and are really tailored for the miniature discipline.
