Push Culture Video Contest – EXTENDED!

written by Ryan July 13, 2010

We heard from many of you that you need more time.  Tons of Maestro’s have been shipping out and it seems like everyone wants to make a push culture video.  As such, the Push Culture Longboarding Video Contest has officially been extended until September 1st.  See the original post below for details and get going!!

//////////////////////—–ORIGINAL CONTEST DETAILS——\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

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.

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.

Here is my video-

This was my friend’s and my first longboard video, which is why its kinda boring, but Chandler, Arizona isn’t exactly the best place for longboarding, considering how flat it is. So, we make the best of it in this video.

A lot of planning and editing went into this. Hope you guys enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exz5JKH7Kwo&hd=1

Anwar Sadat believes that mister Stefan Friesen’s video was just beautiful, and if i was still the president of Egypt, it would be our nations video and possibly become our national support. You know, just something to think about.

Here is my entry to the bustin Board video contest kinda late but finally finished it. This was filmed in hilo hawaii. And our video shows us skating to a popular ice shave place (aka snowcone). It took us about 3 days to film and a day to edit. Hope u enjoy this video and good luck to all the other entries.

Here is the link to the video:

Here is my entry to the Bustin Boards vid contest. Finally finished it. Filmed in Christchurch New Zeakand. Our first Vid. Threw a wee plot in there, Point A and B are the same. Shows Joe enjoying a long Journey to go from A to B even though he was already there. Spent a day Shooting, and about two days editing. Was really hard to keep it close to a minute long, was a good challenge to show a journey/story line in such short time. Was heaps of fun. Enjoy

Defines what is Push Culture. You can be a trader, you can have no money to buy a MetroCard, you can be with your girlfriend, it’s just above everything . A sweet feeling of reunion and sharing with friends or strangers. In one word : PushCulture
