Bustin Boards Flow Squad – Prototype Mail Delivery Service

Getting skateboards in the mail is the shit. It makes me feel like a kid on Christmas, and I know I’m certainly not alone there. Ever since I joined the Bustin roots crew I’ve been begging bubbles for a bigger board; a year and a half later, my dreams came true. We chose a micro drop single kick topmount mold(coming soon, hehe), I then sketched up a shape on graph paper(my sketch was mediocre at best), and bubbles busted out a CAD sketch within a minute or two, somehow. Bubbles asked me which graphic I wanted, so I requested the EQ graphic; I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Bubbles the next day, when he explained he may have to ship the next week because the paint shop guys “went ham” on the graphic. Went ham they did, the graphic on this deck is one of a kind. The artwork on this deck is truly beautiful, so props to you, paint shop guys. I received the board the day after he shipped it, which is awesome because anticipating the arrival of your new shred sled makes time pass at a snail’s pace. I got a notification email from the package receiving center at my university, so I quickly grabbed my Bruno and pushed like a madman; I was a little excited. After the lady at the package receiving center handed me my box, she told me to enjoy my new board; she was on to me, hehe. I pushed back to my dorm and cut open the box with my unnecessarily large bowie knife, snatched the board from the box, and swiftly dropped it on the carpet so I could stand on it. The concave on it is perfect; concaved micro drops, bacon concave for your back foot to rest on while tucking, some w in the middle, and a FAT kicktail. I set it up that night, and took it out for a rip at a local spot the next day. After my first run, I pinched myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming, because DAMN that thing felt good. A few mediocre ollies/runs down the hill later, my session came to an end. As the chronicle of receiving a new custom deck concludes, I’d like to send many thanks to the guys who made it happen at Bustin Boards: Mike Dallas, Ryan Daughtridge, Bubbles, the paint shop guys, and anyone else I missed, thank you.
