We recently started bringing Philly Street Skater and college student Matt Toohey into the Bustin Family as part of our expanding NorthEast team. He was injured earlier this year but has just been given the ok to start skating again. We are looking forward to having him back at full strength soon and pairing him up with our media crew for future projects. Bustin Loves Philly.
Checkout below a few Matt Facts and his pre-injury Retro Flava video part.

Bustin Street Crew is the renegade street sect of Bustin Boards. Born out of the Bustin YoFace double kick series of decks, a crew of core street skaters coalesced in the five boroughs of New York City and have since started spreading their stoke in other cities and growing a global community. Like minded “Skate Everything & Have Fun” people that rally around the entire Bustin Brand Vision. Check us out at bustinboards.com (online) and @bustinstreetcrew (Instagram).
Last week we announced the addition of a new team rider to the #BustinFam when we broke the ice that Matt K has joined our ranks. Matt has solidified him self as a prominent member within our community by promoting pure skateboarding at its very core which aligns his values and viewpoints almost directly with ours here at Bustin. With an approach to skating that is uniquely his own, Matt blends the lines between skating and surfing with a fluidity on land that draws a direct inspiration from his time in the water. After the verbal announcement last week, Matt is back from a recent trip down to NC where he collected some fire footage that has been digitally arranged into his official “Welcome to the Team” edit to add a visual element to the mix. We are honored to have you as a part of our Family Matt and we cannot wait to continue working with you to keep pushing to the next step of progression for skateboarding.

Join 6-time Broadway Bomb champion and professional photographer Kiefer Dixon for a sunday session on the Daenseu board. We think this new video offers an alternative look at a dancer board in an urban environment and we hope you like it! It’s a glimpse into what it feels like when the world’s fastest pusher puts on his headphones and just jives in his natural habitat of New York City. Enjoy!
