Skateboarding Wins 2020 Olympic Gold!!!!

Posted by on Jun 3, 2016 in Events, News


So it’s semi (pretty much a done deal!) official that skateboarding will be in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The buzz is buzzing and there are many who are stoked, some who are bummed, and others who are left confused. Regardless of where you stand on the spectrum, it’s an interesting and important step for skateboarding and many questions are still left unanswered: Will downhill be included, Freestyle, What about the drug testing, and what will their costumes look like?

Anyway, we’re excited to watch it all unfold, and hope to one day have a Bustin Boards rider competing (Max Ballesteros wins Gold!!!) in this arena.

That said,  Wheelbase Magazine just launched a rad little news article discussing this new development with some links to more info as well as pertinent quotes from some of skateboarding’s icons as they way in on this exciting development. Click here to check it out.
