Bustin is taking full advantage of the snow, because we are tired of complaining about too much snow in the streets.  This year, Bustin teamed up with Cannonsburg Ski Area & Tribe Boardwear in Grand Rapids, Michigan to host a Thursday Night Session in Cannonsburg’s terrain park.  We were honored to have the Pure Michigan Antix Board Co crew on site!  Their new Hoffmaster 154 is FRESH!

We set up a Bustin rainbow Feature & Tribe set up a step-down feature, then we put the Bustin tent between the features and blasted some Tropical Trance music for all to enjoy.

Bustin & Tribe brought hella swag and we had fun getting creative with the giveaways.  From 6-8pm, 100+ skiiers & snowboarders lapped the park and had a blast.  Bustin hooked it up with some Cannonsburg Custom decks which were awarded to the heavy hitters at the end of the event.

We came up with a pretty fun game, which was more dangerous as the night went on.  We would stand next to a feature and wave a shirt in the air, like in a bull fight.  Riders would come maching in, jib the rail, and try to grab the shirt.  Between Tribe & Bustin – we gave away at least 30 shirts!  We saw some great grabs and epic slams.  The riders couldn’t get enough!  It was rad.  Another moment of badness was when we handed out a sticker to 100+ shredders at the beginning of the event, and when we asked everyone to take off their gloves and apply the stick, everybody did it! its never that easy!  i blame the cold!  #success

After awhile, we wanted to see riders jump, and clear the entire feature.  We saw some BIG AIRS!  Sketchy, and AWESOME!

Growing up, we used to make jumps wherever Ski Patrol was not.  because, if you were caught making jumps – you’d have your pass clipped.  F that noise.  These days, there is more park riding than alpine skiing, especially in the midwest where vertical is not our friend.  We’re dealing with about 900ft of vertical at #MyCannonsburg, and we slay it.  But, Michigan has 4 seasons – 3 warm, 1 freezing.  That’s why we’re so into longboarding!  We can shred all year long!  1 Love.
