Rapid Movement Ignites Longboard Awareness in Midwest – Bustin Longboards NYC

Posted by on Jun 7, 2012

The Rapid Movement Skateboard Marathon presented by Bustin Longboards NYC is the most high profile skateboard event to happen in Michigan since the early 90’s.  125 registered participants skateboarded for 26 miles around Millennium Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan – marking the most skathletes at a single skateboard competition in Michigan.  The event was hosted to present the idea of Distance Skateboarding to like-minded individuals while offering an incredible race location for experienced skathletes.

Jeremy Ocean and SML Jon Butler were the finish-line marshals.

Organizer Chris Preville did an incredible job hosting the race.

This corner is the fastest area of the course and is a fun challenge.

Robin McGuirk of Eastside Longboards placed 3rd after a gnarly spill.
