David Aparicio – Bustin Boards
On Sunday May 11th, ninety six eager competitors rallied up to find out who was the fastest downhill skateboarder. Rob Wheeler the event organizer, rallied up sponsors such as RedBull and Bustin boards, to meet in Reading Pennsylvania.
The turnout was great, the racing was tight, the weather was beautiful, and the hill was technical.
The Brazillian Bullet Jonas Richter was killing it all day! He wound up taking 2nd place overall right behind Billy Bones!
I made it to the semi-finals, and finished in 8th place, not too shabby either. Most importantly I had a great time. The event was well organized and ran very well. Especially considering this was the first time Rob Wheeler put on the event. Hats off to you brotha, job well done!
All in all, it was a great experience, on behalf of the entire bustin crew, we can’t wait to see you next year!
