Jon Merrill's Favorite Christmas Gift
Jon Merrill got a present for Christmas this year that plenty of middle school kids would be jealous of. Merrill got a pack of Tech Decks from his girlfriend, Jess, that have made him feel like a kid again.
Merrill said that he last played with Tech Decks when he was 12-years-old and now has a solid collection of boards to play with.
For those that might not remember Tech Decks, they’re tiny skateboards that you use your fingers to control, just like a real skateboard. They’ve been all the rage among kids for quite some time, and now they’re popular in the Merrill home, too. He said that he uses a three-finger technique where his middle and ring fingers act as his back foot and his fore finger serves as the front foot. The boards, trucks and wheels are interchangeable, but Merrill said that the pieces are so small that it’s not worth taking the boards apart. Keep shredding, Jon!
