Bustin YoStates Tour

Bustin YoStates Tour

Posted by on Jan 12, 2017 in Events, News, Upcoming Events

We came from both near and far but #TeamBustin has squaded up here in Southern California at Skate House in preparation to send it straight back to the east coast while stopping and shredding with the homies along the way. The van has been outfitted and is committed to the best line possible that allows us to hit up various skate shops and community sessions each stop along the way. Check out the above flyer and check the dates to see if there are any of our stops where you could come say whats up to us at one (or more) of the scheduled appointments we have arranged along our route back across the country.

We are fully prepared to barge and charge any and all paved surfaces we can find as well as lurk with the locals who call those spots home. We are simply skateboarders looking to skate and share our passion with our fellow rippers as we embark on a van voyage back home. Hope to see y’all at some point along the way of the #BustinYoStates Tour where dreamland actually has the chance to become reality!

Sportster: Beat of the Street

Sportster: Beat of the Street

Posted by on Jan 5, 2017 in News, Video

There is a palpable energy that can be felt in the streets of The City that pulses to a rhythm unlike anywhere else in the entire world. The residents of this mega metropolis all attempt to match this beat in their own various ways, but to those who have ever jammed down these city blocks while dipping and dodging through PED barrels and all the other mobile obstacles whilst atop a skateboards know that this is the key to true harmony with the streets. Our local crew who calls The Big Apple home has adopted this lifestyle full on and rarely will be seen braving the urban jungle without their shred sled. Through this dedicated to the Push Life, a desire to craft and create the best possible tool for the job of commute killing began to burn within the #BustinFam which ultimately was the fuel that gave birth to our signature Push Series Collection. Within that series, the Sportster holds a special place in many of our riders hearts due to its agility and versatility when out riding anything from a simple morning coffee run all the way to a mobbing Broadway rip at rush hour. We recently were able to document our dudes Dave, Leon, and Victor on just such a mission with each of them harmonizing to the beat of the street using the Sportster as their instrument.

Tribe Supply Co Presents, Rather Late Than Never

Tribe Supply Co Presents, Rather Late Than Never

Posted by on Dec 29, 2016 in News, Video

Community growth and development is a huge priority for all of us here at Bustin as we seek to support the scene that allows us to express our creative tendencies in the form of morphing and molding skateboards. One such group of skaters that has become a corner stone for their local scene in Michigan is the Tribe Supply Co homies who are constantly getting after it atop their shred sleds while attacking their home town turf with true tenacity and a Skate Everything mentality. Our dude Cameron Steger found him self with some free time this past fall and chose to spend it wisely atop his Bamboo-X Shrike working on his some of his more techy talents at some of his local favorites. From poached path runs to development descents, a new short film produced by Tribe lives up to its name, “Rather Late Than Never” by delivering a fun look into this crew’s local scene.

Be on the look out for more footage from Cameron during his most recent skate-cation down to the Smokey Mountains in NC to be dropping from the Bustin editing booth very soon but until then stay up with both Tribe and Bustin‘s Insta pages for more social media progress updates as they happen!

Kiefer and his Maestro Pro

Kiefer and his Maestro Pro

Posted by on Dec 23, 2016 in News, Video

Despite winning the Broadway Bomb more than a handful of times, our dude Kiefer Dixon still loves pushing around the urban jungle that he calls his home. The streets of NYC are ever changing and always unpredictable which is why Kiefer stays ready for whatever is thrown at him atop his Maestro Pro skateboard. This “commute killer” awards its operator the maximum benefits toward forward momentum while retaining a sense of agility for pedestrian dodging or holding a tight line through burly taxi barrels. Follow along for some of these shred-ventures in the latest quick clip compiled from a recent trip up to The Big Apple where we did our best to keep up with Kiefer in his natural habitat.

Grom Patrol: Curren Atterbury

Grom Patrol: Curren Atterbury

Posted by on Dec 20, 2016 in Grom Patrol, News

When I first met Curren a few years ago at a local skate park I instantly knew this dude was the real deal as I watched him charge burly transition sections that even I would think twice before hitting. His skills on a skateboard speak for them selves but once you get the chance to know him, you discover that not only does he absolutely rip but he is a genuinely good kid just looking to use skating as a tool for his own personal expression. Curren quickly has solidified him self in his home town back yard DIY scene in which he is a very active and accepted member with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Bustin is very excited to have this Grom as part of our Family and we look forward to showing off more from this talented transition killer as he continues to progress with us.

Name:  Curren

Age:  10

Home Town:  Wilmington, NC

Years Skating:  3 years

What originally got you into skateboarding?  I lost interest in popular sports (football, soccer, etc.) and told my parents all I wanted to do was skateboard.

Who is/are your favorite skateboarder(s)?  Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Curren Caples, Ben Rayborn, Jaws, Brian Drake, Todd Johnson, Wyatt Wisenbaker, Collin Graham

We hear you recently got a “mini-ramp” in your backyard.  Tell us a little about your personal training facility:  The ramp is 24 feet wide, 9 feet high (no vert), 12 gauge metal surface, Federal Stone pool coping on one side with metal coping on the other. Architect:  Chad Troutman.  

How did you convince your parents to put a ramp in your backyard? Luckily I really didn’t have to convince them.  They are both cool with it and many skate friends helped build it! Massive thanks to Chad Troutman and Randy Rose!

The Sunset Park of the Road just went off in your hometown.  For those who do not know, explain to us a little about this gathering as well as how it was to actually get to skate it:  This is a super fun event where teams work together to earn points by completing certain “challenges”.  The event travels to three locations to skate in the Sunset Park neighborhood.  The session was SO fun and I am honored to have the opportunity to skate with such a great group of people.  

What is your favorite pre or post skate sesh snack?  No real pre snacks, but ice cream is always a nice treat when I get it. 

-If you could only skate one place for the rest of your life, where would it be and why?  Charleston, South Carolina’s new Team Pain skate park.  It offers a crazy long snake run, a street course, a small bowl and (best of all), a big bowl.  All with buttery, smooth concrete. 

What does “Skate Everything” mean to you? It means skate all aspects of a park.  Skate every surface and terrain.  Respect all skaters no matter what type of board they have under their feet.  Skating should be for fun and always share the stoke!
