Bustin is proud of our local sweetheart Micku Murgolo who captured 1st place in the Women’s Division and 3rd place in the Open Division at Gravity Skateboards – Slidefest 2008 in Oceanside, California. Micku is a talented skater with the drive to learn and the discipline to win.
We had an incredible opportunity to share our shop with the slide queen early October. Inspired by epic sliders Cliff Coleman, Brad Edwards and Sergio Yuppie, Micku sketched her vision of the perfect slider on a blank 5 ply raw shape and carefully manipulated it’s form. Hours of tireless effort fueled the creation of her ‘one of a kind’ Bustin Slider, custom built with Crail Limited 159’s and Abec 11 No Skool Sliders. Micku competed with her Bustin Dreamer at Slidefest 2008, achieving she and our debut Bustin 1st Place Podium appearance! I am very happy for Micku and stoked about her dedication to longboarding. Congratulations Micku, amazing to watch your dream come true!
New York City was also represented by the incredibly talented Jessica Corchia skating with local board bretheren Earthwing Skateboards. Holding down the East Coast in skating and music, Jess once again impressed the crowd earning 1st place for Best Trick and 3rd in the Womens Division, riding her Earthwing signature Corchia board. Congratulations Jess, you rock! NYC ladies, holding it down!
