Prototyping with Will Royce – Bustin Longboards NYC

written by Bubbles April 23, 2014

Earlier this month and a little bit of last, we hosted Will Royce at the Bustin HQ for a few weeks to get him in the shop for some R&R, as well as to take the opportunity to do a little redesign for his pro model board.  He had some ideas for new wheelbases, new wheel wells, and some weight reducing ideas to boot!

You can't get em all!

It had been a while since we had Will in town, so the first step was to meet up with some NYC cats, touch base with Push Culture, and head out for a weekend of skate mania.

After a weekend of debauchery we dragged him back to the warehouse and very quickly we had him down in the CNC shop for some in house board making.  From channels, to different wheel wells, to new wheelbase options, and new tail shapes, we did pretty much anything you could think to do to the Royce Pro model.  Will’s main goals were to make it trimmer, lighter, and more appropriate for his skate everything lifestyle.

After a couple of trial and error steps (not everything works) we landed on some new wheel-wells (bite free forever!), more wheelbase options (never too many options), as well as a sleeker sexier new look!  We’ll be implementing the new features in the next month or so, so make sure to head into your local shop and check out the new-new from Bustin and Will Royce!
