Clark Patrick Moped Skitch

Midwest Team Rider Clark Patrick sent me this photo of him getting to the spot on the Shrike Board.  Wakeboard boats have become a pretty badass industry, combining crazy horsepower with subwoofers and mini-fridges.   I think its about time someone develop the skitch scooter in the same vein.  Who’s on it?

The Bustin Shrike with Toti Bicicleta and Perropro

(Watch on YouTube instead – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K67uI6gWswI)

Starting from the ground up, we sourced the think tank of our team riders and flow team and began designing a board to continue our #SkateEverything mentality. The goal was to create something that could be used in our home on the streets of NYC, all the way out to the hills and mountains of CA, and everywhere in between. The Shrike (or the Mystery Model as it was known for the majority of it’s development) is born of the collective desire to skate, developed using high detail rendering and molding, and presented to the world ready to take on anything.

Skater Dater (1965)

Posted by on Jul 15, 2015 in Mike Stories, News, Video | 0 comments

There comes a times in every boy and girl’s life when attraction to the same and/or opposite sex overcomes passion for hobbies.  The first film ever produced about skateboarding, Skaterdater (1965), tells a story with no dialogue.

A group of boy skaters are suddenly at a point when one of the boys sees a young girl, and becomes interested in her. This causes a rift with the other boys, who challenges him to a skating duel that goes down a hilly street.

White Pine Trail Distance Skateboarding – Grand Rapids, MI

Michigan longboarding roots are dense in distance skateboarding.  Commuting point A to B is part of everyone’s life, and it feels good on on a skateboard.  Only the past 30 years or so the majority of Americans have invested a major chunk of their savings into automobiles, and bikes- to commute point A to B.  Automotives are rad!  Bikes are pretty cool too.  But, you can’t drive an automotive on a State-Trail networks.

The Divide Distance Skateboarding Challenge: Sunday, July 19 – Manton, MI

Divide

The Divide Distance Skateboarding Challenge- Manton, MI: https://www.facebook.com/TheDividebikerace?fref=ts

The Divide Distance Skateboarding Challenge is a hybrid skate event offering 5k/10k distance races + a hybrid push with speed sections.  Longboard skateboarding was added to the Manton, Michigan event because the road is closed for a bike race and the bikers are interested to see how skaters can keep up on a course with climbs and descents.  The course is not very technical, but does offer thrilling speed sections, corners and climbs.  There is a campground on a nice lake in Manton where we’ll camp out for the evening should you choose to stay and hang out in northern Michigan for the evening – bring a tent.  Family friendly event, until someone takes their pants off.
