After the Euro Tour team rider Max Ballesteros joined fellow skaters Pepe Laporte, Patrick Switzer and the Utah Slut City crew for some fun freeride sessions in Switzerland. Sleeping under the stars and surviving baguettes, the boys encountered some new amazing roads and some old classics, and took full advantage of the perfect weather on the Swiss Alps. Join them for the ride and see what it’s like to skate down miles of crazy curved descents!

Whether you’re smashin’ down mountain roads or flippin’ your shit at a local D.I.Y. spot, it’s all skateboarding and it’s everything you want it to be. Get some!!!!

A couple of behind the scenes pics from the making of this video:
We are stoked to welcome Brad Parker of the #Gnaratz to the Bustin Boards Team. Brad is from Long Beach, California and a D.I.Y. building maniac with a distinct style of skateboarding that is totally raw, way rugged, and fully rad! Brad also rides for Paris Truck Co. and he skates everything including downhill, street, bowls, ditches, and whatever else crosses his path—just the way it should be! Brad has also been featured on the covers, and within the pages, of numerous skateboarding magazine including Wheelbase, Confusion, CW, and a few others.
Anyway, please enjoy this video welcoming Brad Parker to the Bustin Boards team, featuring a D.I.Y. build and session way out in the middle of the Southern California desert. Stay tuned for more videos coming from Brad featuring DIY builds, ripping skating, and other such radness. Signature board too? All signs point to: Hell Yes!

For this year’s tenth-annual Ditch Slap event we opted to forego the traditional recap formant of simply showcasing our team and other shenanigans; instead we focused our attention, and camera, directly on the wide variety of skateboarders who were in attendance at this year’s event and who joined us in riding the endless ditches of Albuquerque, New Mexico with new and old friends of all ages, backgrounds, and origins.
Thanks to all the riders who took the time to share their histories. A special thanks Joe for hosting all of us yet again.
If you missed our first Skate Everything Project challenge of year that we also did at Ditch Slap then make sure to also check out the two winning teams here & here.
