We are stoked to announce that Max Ballesteros has joined the Bustin Team and will be competing in his first race as a Bustin Rider this weekend at the Catalina Classic. Max hails from Brazil, along with his new Bustin Teammate Jonas Richter, and currently lives and skates in San Diego, CA. Max brings a hard-charging downhill style combined with a steezy, skate-everything finesse and board control.
Max ended last season with a 6th Place IDF World Ranking and charges into the 2014 season ready to rip. We’re stoked to support him along with his other sponsors MuirSkate, RAD Wheels, Ronin Trucks and Vultur Helmets.
Max’s setup for Catalina is pictured below:. 2014 Bustin Ratmobile ThermoGlass (setup at 24’5″ Wheelbase option) + Ronin 164mm 45/40 ProLight Trucks + RAD Advantage 74mm 78a Wheels and MuirSkate El Beasto Bearings.
Look for lots of media surrounding Max in the coming months and follow Bustin for all the latest news about his race season. Here are a few videos from MuirSkate and R.A.D. that should help explain why we’re so stoked to have Max on the team. Lets rock!
Welcome to the Team Max!
