What do all these decks have in common? They’re all small producers while still keeping the great quality of a Berlinwood. I know there are alot more of homemade, top quality decks and I will be sure to write about them one day but Artifice, Finga and Evolve decks seem the most unique, as of now.
Artifice fingerboards are 100% Peruvian work evolved from 3 years of experience in the highest qualit material and inovation. “Since its inception we have applied technologies never before seen in sports” – Artifice facebook.

Evolve decks are handmade in Brazil by Jade Muller which officially started in 2003. This gives him 9 years experience that reflects the amazing quality of Evolve decks. The graphics are superb and make me want to buy out their whole collection. “They feature deep concave and medium/steep kicks, each deck is made with 4 plies, being lacquered later, providing a really shiny look. The measures are about 98mm-26mm” – Flatface.com. Evolve decks have been sold in over 20 countires over it’s history and at the moment only a few online stores sell them. -Click here for store-
