chief ladiga

The Chief ladiga Silver Comet Skate Challenge is a 3 day, 188 mile stage race on the Silver Comet Trail between Georgia and Alabama.  The course is 94 miles, longboard skateboarders compete for fastest finishing time over a 3-day period.  On the final day of Ladiga, the skaters push the entire 94 miles back to the finish – a true testament to the dedication of these athletes.  Bustin is an urban push company, naturally we are obsessed with this type of event.  Huge respect to the field of skaters who will participate in the Ladiga event this year.

You can follow live updates on the Chief Ladiga Stage Race website: Chief Ladiga Stage Race on Facebook

Bustin sends a fat shout-out to our West Michigan’s Flow Skater, David Driscoll of West Michigan for his podium finish on the Junior Final of Rage at the Ridge in Onekama, Michigan.  Daivd (skating Bustin Hollow-Core EQ) was one of nearly 70 skaters who competed in the Downhill event in Northern Michigan this weekend and we expect David to continue his journey to the top of the podium in the near future  – practice makes perfect, and Young Gunz puts in the hours. #Respect. Major respect to West Michigan’s Jay Holst in 2nd and Ed Keifer in 1st.  You guys skated a crowd-pleaser run and had a kick ass time doing it.  That’s what its all about!

“We’re old – 19 years old to be exact. We sold our first skateboard and snowboard on November 10, 1995 out of our 700 sq ft shop in Portland, Oregon. We fell in love with longboarding in 1999 and have been selling them ever since to hundreds of thousands of customers ALL OVER THE WORLD.  Today, Daddies is the largest longboard shop in the world. Really.  We have a good time here at Daddies. But we take our work seriously. Longboarders have graciously rewarded us for our efforts by voting Daddies the 2012 and 2013 Best Online Longboard Shop.”
