Push Culture Longboarding – The Video Contest Starts Now

written by Ryan June 8, 2010

At Bustin Boards Brooklyn we develop boards for Push Culture longboarding in New York City.  What does this mean?  It means we use our boards for everything from getting to work to going to concerts and we almost never use cars.  Living in the city, every skate is an adventure and no two rides are the same.  There is Point A and Point B, but what matters is life in between.  Where do you skate to and from?  This contest is for you to show off your version of longboard commuting in style and show the world how you live life one skate at a time.

Here is the deal.  The theme of the video should be “My Push Culture”.  Choose a Point A and a Point B and make a video showing the thrill of the line in between.  You can do tricks, you can do speed, you can do sliding, you can do off-road, its YOUR commute and its your life, JUST MAKE IT FUN.  The winners will be the people who get the most creative during their commute and capture it the best.

DUE DATE:  August 1st

1.  Video should be roughly one minute long, give or take.
2.  The rest is your call, but the general rule of thumb is “make it interesting”.  We don’t care if you jump off your board to help an old lady cross the street or ride off a dock at the end, but please don’t just hold a camera and skate down the road filming your wheels.  Take some tips from the links below and really get into it, YOU HAVE TWO MONTHS!
3.  You DO NOT have to ride a Bustin longboard, you just have to love longboarding.  The winners will be those who make us wish we could skate their town, not necessarily their board.

-The first place winner can customize a FREE MAESTRO DECK and set it up with their choice of TRUCKS and WHEELS (with standard abec7 bearings and hardware).
-Second and third place win a set of Boca wheels (your choice of size).
-Fourth place gets a Bustin hoodie (any size, any color).

-Upload your video to your personal youtube account with the title “Push Culture Longboarding:  [your board model]”.  For example “Push Culture Longboarding:  Bustin Strike”.  In the description for your video please also link back to this blog post so that viewers will be able to vote on your video by leaving a comment below.

-We would like to hear what people think of the videos.  Make sure to put the link to this blog post in your video description so that people can comment here on your video.  Also, feel free to leave a comment announcing your video and giving us some background where you skate and why you love Push Culture Longboarding.  The winners will be chosen by the Bustin Boards staff and announced in early August.  We will also feature the winner videos on our homepage and blog.

does this have to be a solo video, or can it be filmed of a bunch of people making the commute

Ryan June 8, 2010 at 10:18 pm

definitely can be either solo or crew style… your choice!

Dwayne June 9, 2010 at 6:49 pm

Super psyched on this!

Max June 12, 2010 at 7:32 am

If it’s a crew style only one person will win the deck.

Melodic June 12, 2010 at 7:37 pm

Can you submit more then one video??

sam June 15, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Are international entries accepted? 🙂

Adam June 17, 2010 at 5:40 am

NOOO I”ll only get my new longboard about the 3rd week of July T_T

Louis June 20, 2010 at 8:42 am

Is it compulsory to be a commuting longboard video from a point A to a point B ? Or can it be a simple video with tricks… ?

Nic June 23, 2010 at 6:36 pm

andrew June 25, 2010 at 12:04 am


Check it out,
Im not riding at any “great” spots but my video is more about my style and i think i had a good idea for my videos consept.

ryan July 5, 2010 at 8:30 am

Andrew – looks tight man. Great concept and execution

Louis – the concept is Point A to Point B, but I’m sure you can make it work with tricks in between.

Sam – of course international entries are accepted.

Melodic – submit as many as you want.

Max – yeah, if its a crew style we can still only give away one deck. Everyone can share.

thanks everyone

Here’s my contribution. A video made in NJ with a couple of friends just trying to make a sport we love look as fun as it is. We played with a lot of experimental filming techniques to try and make it something different.

Here’s my entry.

I decided to make a video of my commute to work. I did not attempt to glorify it at all, it is a mundane thing and I wanted to portray it as such.

This was filmed from about 6:15am to 6:45am on Friday morning, July 16, 2010.
And edited during the following hour while I was at work.

Damn this sounds AWESOME! I wish I would’ve heard of it sooner. I’m relatively new to longboarding and just started learning about bustin boards. Unfortunantly, I bought my first board based on looks and not research, a Santa Cruz. I’m really close to buying either a Maestro or Strike. SO why not try to get a free one while havin fun! By the way, your guys’ videos are pretty sweet so far.

This is a Thursday session with the Concrete Kings, led by King Sol over the bridge into the city to play in Union Square and Central Park before 3 of our crew were snatched up by the cops on Broadway in times square so that ended up being our POINT B LOL…THIS IS PUSH CULTURE!!

Just another day in Soviet Russia!:

I didn’t really know what to call it as my friend decided to ride his own homemade deck. I offered him my DH race but he said he was more comfortable on his deck. So, i dubbed it the Soviet Plank! We shot the video on the outskirts of West Chester PA. We usually don’t skate in rural areas but we needed to film somewhere more… secluded.

I wanted to post you the tiny remark to finally give many thanks over again regarding the marvelous principles you’ve shown on this website. This has been tremendously open-handed with you to offer unreservedly all that most of us would have supplied as an electronic book in making some profit on their own, even more so seeing that you might have tried it in the event you wanted. The creative ideas likewise served to become a fantastic way to fully grasp that the rest have the identical keenness much like my own to see more and more with reference to this matter. Certainly there are millions of more enjoyable opportunities up front for people who check out your website.
