Why are fingerboards so expensive?

Fingerboards, can be expensive due to several factors that contribute to their quality and value:

  1. Materials: High-quality fingerboards are often made from materials that mimic the performance and feel of real skateboards, such as wood for the deck and metal for the trucks.
  2. Craftsmanship: The attention to detail in the manufacturing process, including the precision of the trucks and wheels, can affect the overall performance and durability of the fingerboard.
  3. Manufacturing Process: Many fingerboards are handmade, which involves a lot of time and skill. This manual process ensures quality but also contributes to a higher price
  4. Design: Unique graphics and designs can add to the aesthetic appeal and collectibility of fingerboards, which can also increase their cost.
  5. Performance: High-performance fingerboards are designed to provide a smooth and responsive experience, which can significantly affect the price.
