Someone recently asked me on Instagram – “What makes Bustin’s street decks different than any other street board on the out there?” My short reply was – “Top quality American wood, a classic and functional shape. It’s an additional tool to take your skating where you want to go. Why wouldn’t we have the basics covered?”
Bustin has a broad lineup of all kinds of equipment for every type of specialized skating. Street decks are an Essential for skateboarding. If you choose to use one of our decks, even one of our generic shapes for your skating you’re basically saying as an empowered consumer – I support the Bustin Brand. The quality of the product. The attitude and image of the company. The aesthetic of the graphics. And I like the skaters that they choose sponsor and flow.
Cover the basics, learn and grow from there. It’s survival in the city.

We print custom boards by hand but our print crew feels the pain during the holidays because most of the orders come in at once after Thanksgiving. This year we’re cutting them a break and offering a 20% Discount Custom Decks ordered before Thanksgiving Day. Be kind to the print guys, get your holiday orders in early!

Dublin Pearse D’Arcy wins “King of Huku”, a 2-man heat race on huku hill on the 14th of November. For anyone who hasn’t skated it or seen it before it’s narrow 5 corners and around 55 kph. There were a lot of potholes but they filled them in but it’s still rough in a few sections. The heats were picked by names pulled from a hat and the winners progressed. Pictured: Pearse showing his mean face!

“Skateboarding is not a hobby, and it’s not a sport. Skateboarding a way of learning how to redefine the world around you.” – Ian MacKaye of Fugazi
When you skate, things look different. sculpture looks like “SK-ulpture”, traffic jams are a playground to weave through. Everything can be potentially used and skated in some unintended way. Even without super skate skills, your mind begins to imagine what you could do if you got better. That is where a wealth of motivation comes from.
