Blaklist Fingerboards are handmade in California by two best friends.
It was a crazy idea, a little intoxicated, yet completely coming from an honest place. We wanted to make fingerboards that were just fun to play with.
Blaklist is the edge of our favorite skateboard brand, the artwork from Tom Martinez Jr. and the craftsmenship of Ryan Urdiales.
Ryan and Tom are childhood friends who have been making music and pursuing creative careers.
Ryan is the guitarist for the metal band, Dimidium @dimidiumband. In High school, Tom and Ryan played in a band called PYRACY (youtube our music) and toured with such bands as Salmon, Insolence, Hed P.E., and Papa Roach. Now Ryan is hand crafting Blaklist Boards and still rocking crowds in Dimidium.
Tom is a Creative Director for a major Production Studio in Los Angeles, CA. With years of touring and filming bands such as Korn, Motorhead, Slipknot, Bring Me The Horizon, Deftones and Avenged Sevenfold just to name a few. Tom also runs VLVTT media and is now filming Tattoo Artist Mayhem Meghan. You can find his work @tommartinezjr
BLAKLIST Fingerboards are made with a great attention to detail. Every board is made with quality in mind. We hope you enjoy our boards as much as we do.
