About Adnaan and FireFlame Fingerboards:
In around July 2012 I got interested in a hobby called fingerboarding. When I was younger I was in it on-and-off. This is when I became serious about fingerboarding and discovered the market of high quality, handmade fingerboards.
I received my very first wooden fingerboard that month; I was not satisfied with it! I knew how expensive fingerboards could be and how they could be better. I then set out to start my own fingerboard company to offer the best fingerboard equipment for affordable prices!
I started off selling fingerboard tape on a "sketchy" website, I coded myself at the age of 10. Speaking of that, I coded my own webpage at the age of 9. :).
Anyways, very few were sold on that website... most were close friends. As friends and peers found interest in fingerboarding, I decided to take it to another level. In August of 2012, my company, FireFlame Fingerboards was officially formed. I then sold decks, trucks, wheels, and tape. Through the months I had learned a lot about the market and actually making the product.
After a year, I had a lot of great experiences. Meeting great people and expanding the business day by day. At the same time, improved my products a whole ton, and began a distribution division of the company. My real point of success was during the holidays of 2013. I experienced a boat load of orders at once and I was overwhelmed. A huge thanks to everyone who supported me through that time. And of course my wonderful parents for helping me fulfill all the orders! :).
It is now 2014, and I have grown my business over many platforms. I have developed many business relationships throughout the years all over the globe. I hope to expand even more and spread love and support throughout the fingerboarding and skating scene!
P.S. - A special thanks to my mom and dad, and my mentor James Barbieri. :)
