BROADWAY BOMB 2011 – ALL THE INFO IS ON THE BUSTIN BLOG

written by Mike September 22, 2011

Broadway Bomb 2011 will be an incredible weekend for skaters in New York City.  The 3 day event attracted 550+ skaters last year and that number has been exceeded on the signup page already for 2011.  All the industry leaders will be at the event this year and are sending their top athletes to compete against NYC’s finest.  For the rest of the pack (like me), the event is possibly the most exhilarating group skate ever – through more than 150 traffic lights, one hundred thousand pedestrians, cops, road blocks, and road kill.  YOU COULD DIE!
