Title: Carlsbad Replica for fingerboards.
Post by: Jacob Piller on January 17, 2013, 12:30:46 PM
Hey guys, I thought you guys might like this since it is getting really close to the 1 year memorial of Carlsbad's demolition. My friend Justin made a replica of it for our mutual hobby, fingerboarding.

Some of you guys may know it as "Tech Decking" but trust me it's a lot more like skateboarding than that. We have made every part that you can make for ourselves so when you see a setup, most of the time it has no Tech Deck parts at all. Personally when someone calls it Tech Decking, I feel like you just said that when I skate I should call it Baker-ing or I'm gonna go Black Label-ing. It sounds retarded.

Back on topic though, he took as many measurements as he could from photos and video of the spot and he scaled it down to the perfect size. He's a perfectionist when it comes to stuff but even more so on this because of the memorial factor to it. So guys tell me what yout hink of it.
