Just wanted to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving and also let everyone know we are thankful for your support. For most of the last 10 years, Bustin Boards was little more than a dream for me and many times I wondered if it would work at all. Each year for Thanksgiving I would come home to my family in Maryland and everyone would ask “how is Bustin Boards? you thinking about getting a real career or do you still believe the sport of longboarding is growing? we support you Ryan, but we just worry about you. do people really love this sport as much as you?” Yada Yada Yada, I would think. In hindsight, I realize how supportive they really were because they never made me feel stupid or silly, they just worried like families do. This year as I sit in my parents house watching the Thanksgiving Day parade, I realize both how far we’ve come and how far we have to go. I’m thankful to everyone who has joined our dream and made Bustin one of their passions and I’m certain we couldnt take it any further without you. I’m also thankful to all the customers who have supported the brand over the years and I hope that we’ve always lived up to your expectations and helped improve your life through longboarding. We’re not perfect and we learn more everyday, but we’re determined to evolve and improve our products and this sport as long as you people love to longboard!
Anyway, I just wanted to give a quick shout-out and wish everyone who reads our blog and Facebook a Happy Thanksgiving! Whether your shredding with your friends or just enjoying some college football, I hope everyone finds lots to be thankful for and has a chill Thanksgiving day!
