Fingers of Steel chronicles the hardcore world of finger skateboarding. Warning: some of the tricks are so gnarly you'll wonder how fingerboarder Chris Heck escapes with fingers intact.
Via filmmaker Sebastian Linda:
Chris Heck fought his way up over the most dangerous, lifethreatening tricks, with numerous sore finger injuryies, and nerval breakdowns to where he is today.
Since winning the German championship in 2003, he worked everyday on his inventive tricks while phoning with his wife wife Anna, on his wooden kitchen table.
Through this hard training his fingers became harder than any industry steal you can buy.
His Pro Model, with a a red Skwirral, (which is his favorite animal, right after turtles and foxes) crowns his legendary 21 years of Finger Skateboarding.
Includes behind the scenes footage and a great workshop with some young kids.
