Bustin x Tribe BoardWear team up for 2015


If you made it to any skate events in Michigan this summer, you probably noticed quite a few of the homies rocking Tribe BoardWear.  You noticed because the threads are sick and “The Tribe” is a pretty massive crowd!  Its rad when a Tribe of like-minded cats gang up and spread the positive.  it’s even better when they sell dope apparel out of a pop-up camper-thing that is pretty sweet.

The Tribe has created a massive following around Michigan, and I’m sure that will spread as Tribe Owner Jake Tolan & Cameron Steger join the Bustin Michigan Forces in 2015!   Stay tuned for more to come…

The Tribe Ethos:  “We are striving to provide original, high quality, and affordable clothing for those with an active lifestyle and a love of all board sports.  It doesn’t matter if you’re on the snow, asphalt, or out on the water there is no other feeling like a board under your feet, and that is what we are all about. We stand for the simple and the most important things in life: family, friends, progression and fun! Welcome to the Tribe”

Occupy Pando III – December 27, 2014 – Rockford, Michigan

Occupy Pando III

Occupy Pando III is going down Friday, December 27 2014!  For the third year, Grand Rapids #BackYardUnderground shredder Zepplin Zeerip will be hosting Occupy Pando in partnership with Pando Winter Sports Park.

“Last year, as we gained notoriety and increased event recognition, we saw nearly fifty competitors and over two hundred spectators visit Pando for the event. This upcoming seasons event will be very similar to the last, in that we will add wallrides and street features to the pipe while placing emphasis on it’s natural turns by building up larger hips and quarterpipes throughout it. ” – Zeppelin

Pando Winter Sports Park is the Birthplace of Competitive Snowboarding.  Jake Burton won a competition here in the 1970′s.  Bustin is more than amped to support cross-season throw-downs like Occupy Pando because the backyard snowboard scene is the roots of many side-stance sports. It’s what got us into into skating hills, because it was cross-training when the snow melts.  DH Skateboarding is basically snowboarding in the summer, so we’re hooking it up with some mad shredworthy decks for the podium and few lucky rippers.

The homies at hooked it up with event coverage from 2013.  Zep says this year the features will be changed up and there will be a DIY section for that extra naughty.  I’m stoked to be there with the Bustin tent and crew!  Don’t miss out on Friday, December 27!
