There is a palpable energy that can be felt in the streets of The City that pulses to a rhythm unlike anywhere else in the entire world. The residents of this mega metropolis all attempt to match this beat in their own various ways, but to those who have ever jammed down these city blocks while dipping and dodging through PED barrels and all the other mobile obstacles whilst atop a skateboards know that this is the key to true harmony with the streets. Our local crew who calls The Big Apple home has adopted this lifestyle full on and rarely will be seen braving the urban jungle without their shred sled. Through this dedicated to the Push Life, a desire to craft and create the best possible tool for the job of commute killing began to burn within the #BustinFam which ultimately was the fuel that gave birth to our signature Push Series Collection. Within that series, the Sportster holds a special place in many of our riders hearts due to its agility and versatility when out riding anything from a simple morning coffee run all the way to a mobbing Broadway rip at rush hour. We recently were able to document our dudes Dave, Leon, and Victor on just such a mission with each of them harmonizing to the beat of the street using the Sportster as their instrument.Read More
Community growth and development is a huge priority for all of us here at Bustin as we seek to support the scene that allows us to express our creative tendencies in the form of morphing and molding skateboards. One such group of skaters that has become a corner stone for their local scene in Michigan is the Tribe Supply Co homies who are constantly getting after it atop their shred sleds while attacking their home town turf with true tenacity and a Skate Everything mentality. Our dude Cameron Steger found him self with some free time this past fall and chose to spend it wisely atop his Bamboo-X Shrike working on his some of his more techy talents at some of his local favorites. From poached path runs to development descents, a new short film produced by Tribe lives up to its name, “Rather Late Than Never” by delivering a fun look into this crew’s local scene.
Be on the look out for more footage from Cameron during his most recent skate-cation down to the Smokey Mountains in NC to be dropping from the Bustin editing booth very soon but until then stay up with both Tribe and Bustin‘s Insta pages for more social media progress updates as they happen!
Despite winning the Broadway Bomb more than a handful of times, our dude Kiefer Dixon still loves pushing around the urban jungle that he calls his home. The streets of NYC are ever changing and always unpredictable which is why Kiefer stays ready for whatever is thrown at him atop his Maestro Pro skateboard. This “commute killer” awards its operator the maximum benefits toward forward momentum while retaining a sense of agility for pedestrian dodging or holding a tight line through burly taxi barrels. Follow along for some of these shred-ventures in the latest quick clip compiled from a recent trip up to The Big Apple where we did our best to keep up with Kiefer in his natural habitat.Read More
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.

From the man (Bill Rice) himself:
“Everything in Korea is skate-able. The roads and the city. Gong to S.Korea was similar to getting off the plane and arriving in the future. Everyone has nice cars, clean streets, and neon lights everywhere. Illegal drugs are super illegal there but they love their legal drugs. Everyone smokes and drinks… BUT, if you’re Korean and you smoke cannabis in California, then fly home and they find out, you go to jail.
Everyone I met was super friendly and easy to talk to and there didn’t seem to be any sort of homeless problem. I can’t wait to go back for Koreas first IDF race in April – the road looks amazing.
The 1 Love Skate Shop in Seoul was one of the best shops I have ever visited. They had longboards and skateboards, giant TVs playing rad videos, and a really good vibe. We set up a rail out front one day while I was there and had a good session. The shop is also right down town and close to all the action!
Thanks and shout-out to Young for all the hospitality and love!”Read More
Toti Bicicleta took a day trip to a secluded residential area in Spain and played skateboards all day long.
Toti Bicicleta is back at it again, going fast in the Spanish hills. Filmed by his good friend Melvin Herrmann, here’s our dude enjoying a sunset evening session.
