Andy Millien, always Bustin out the Fresh Grip Art for his decks.
With 2016 coming to a close I dove into what I do at the end of each year. Start making space for the future by clearing out my phone and camera of old photos and video clips. Before I hit delete I make it a point to repost some of the year’s highlights all in one place as a small time marker of current skate culture and style.
Enjoy the video and photos. 2016 was epic in NYC Skateboarding. 2017 is looking even better.

Stephan Lewis recently hosted “Picture This” at The Woods in Brooklyn. A night featuring local photographers from the NYC Skate Community. Between the Photos, Bartender, DJ, and Live Music, the night was Off The Hook. Check out the event photo highlights in the gallery below. Thanks to NYC Prince for photographing the event.
17 year old Loy Feliciano is a Williamsburg Brooklyn skater that has been putting in some work. He frequents Bustin’s Brooklyn shop and works in Greenpoint over at East River Skate Shop.
Loy recently had a gnarly foot surgery and has been focused on healing. He just got the go ahead from his doctor & surgeon to start skating again. I met up with him last week for a quick photo session and we snapped this Frontside Boardslide pic at the Williamsburg Bridge Plaza. He’s ready to dive back in full force.
We are stoked to start bringing Loy into the Bustin Street Crew and Bustin Boards Family. 2017 is looking good and Loaded with New Potential.
We recently started bringing Philly Street Skater and college student Matt Toohey into the Bustin Family as part of our expanding NorthEast team. He was injured earlier this year but has just been given the ok to start skating again. We are looking forward to having him back at full strength soon and pairing him up with our media crew for future projects. Bustin Loves Philly.
Checkout below a few Matt Facts and his pre-injury Retro Flava video part.
Age:19 School: Art Institute of Philadelphia Major: Photography Degree: Bachelor Surgery to Repair: Torn acl and both meniscus How I got injured: I was skating a gap warming up with an ollie thought I was going to hit the end of the gap. When I bailed and landed on the end of the gap with my knee turned the other way, my knee popped. Next stop was the emergency room.
Bustin Street Crew is the renegade street sect of Bustin Boards. Born out of the Bustin YoFace double kick series of decks, a crew of core street skaters coalesced in the five boroughs of New York City and have since started spreading their stoke in other cities and growing a global community. Like minded “Skate Everything & Have Fun” people that rally around the entire Bustin Brand Vision. Check us out at bustinboards.com (online) and @bustinstreetcrew (Instagram).
