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).
