On its way to you as of 35 minutes ago!
Sorry for the wait, will be with you soon though!
Don't forget the fist pump in the air quoting ''im better than Mike on a fingerboard'!!! :)
Also big thanks for your end of the deal, im waiting in anticipation of your tasty work!
So yeah, Ive not been too active recently....Ive been experiencing a few issues with some of the suppliers of certain things....Nothing runs smoothly in deck making unfortunately. You think you have everything sorted, (and for the most part they are). But then new problems arise which you have no control over.
Anyway heres the next batch of decks ready for shaping/finishing.
As you can probably see, there are some shaped decks in this lot. I cant finish them off as im waiting for some graphics. (ThIs would be the Amprsnds decks) (Thom get at me)!!!! Also blank Blosoms (obviously will be back). Hard Knox's and maybe even something different? who knows?
More news soon. Thanks for your support and love :)
Hey Ho. I'm going to have a few of these available sometime in the near future.
They are lovey lacquered wood decks, then primed in a white coat, then a heavy coat of fluorescent paint. This is exactly how real skateboards are done, other than my decks are lacquered first, so when all that paint smudges off (if you ever get that far) you will be left with a lacquered deck.
These 2 were just for test purposes, But ill have them in all Fluroro colours. They smudge up beautifully. Also because the paint rubs in the way it does, it picks up smudges of paint from obstacles. You can see some red on the bottom of the deck, and that was from sliding on my Amprsnds curb.
This is probably going to be a one off thing just to keep things mixed. I got loads more projects im working on/that will be coming to light as and when.
Check the smudge.
I'm not really one for looking through YouTube videos. For one i dont get the time too, and also because we all know Kerry puts the pick of the bunch on his site, so he makes our lives that much easier.
I was stoked to see this on Unite.
Ive not seen any support videos for a good while, so this brought a huge smile to my face after a good 8 hours deck making/related today.
Props to you George. Appreciate the love and for you taking the time to make a video dedicated to Blosom.
As it goes the team section of Blosom has faded. I have the uttermost respect for Kerry and Eddie, those 2 guys live fingerboarding so i will always be grateful to those guys, but Harry and Billy seem to have vanished....I know people come and go in fingerboarding, and its a real shame those 2 guys dont contribute to the scene like they once did.
Maybe its time to bring on some much needed new blood to the team. It could certainly do with it.
As soon as i saw this picture on FBHQ i knew it was special. Ive not posted it here yet thus far because i was waiting till the end of the week. (Hint, hint).
I'm glad Kerry agrees, and i know Pete who is feeling under the weather will be stoked...Also his Birthday is beckoning so thats a nice treat for the old timer too :)
Its got the full package really. backdrop, decent camera and nicely coordinated setup.
Keep to the beat.
Hard at work today on a new Ampersands project. Involving oldchool shaped boards. These will be a super limited run of Ampersands decks.
They are still in the early stages of production, but you can get an idea as to the shape. Obviously these still need sanding and lacquer.
Also these decks are made on their own mold, so please dont confuse these with a Blosom/Ampersands collab...These are Ampersands oldschool decks. Made by me.
Be sure to check them out when they drop.
In the meantime, why not show your love and support by buying one of the super limited caps on the Ampersands store? Quality bespoke caps made for you, at a decent price.....On sale too!
