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.
Our street decks have been in development for several years now, led by our Bustin Street Crew team in NYC. This year we’ve release and refined four sizes and continue to make them available to skaters on the East Coast. We’re stoked to now release them on a limited basis as a part of our online Custom Program. Play with the customizer by clicking your width:
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.
