Remember those Tech Decks you played with as a kid? Well not only are they still around (albeit under a different name) but they’re bigger than ever apparently.

A new video by Great Big Story goes inside the life of the 23-year-old owner of Flatface Fingerboards and learns about the current fingerboarding scene, as well as what drove him to start a company around the tiny toys. Based in Dracut, Massachusetts, fans flock from all over the world to compete in tournaments and show off their two-finger skills in the brand’s nondescript warehouse lined with various “skate parks.”

Enjoy the video above and find out how Palace Skateboards blew up.
