Insanity Boardshop was started in 2011 while Ehren Mohammadi was studying Business Plans at UTSA. In 2012 after graduation Ehren opened up the store near the airport in the middle of town. We have been thriving and getting new customers since then. Insanity had not grown as much as hoped, then a new location became available 3 miles from UTSA and Ehren decided to move on it. There will be a small transition time period but he hopes to have the new location open in August.
Last weekend saw one of the fastest races on the East Coast go down. The Killington Downhill Throwdown, presented by Restless Longboards, is an annual race that is celebrating it’s first year as part of the IDF circuit this year as on of the World Qualifying Series races. 3 days of racing down a 60+ mph course attracts some of the biggest names in the Downhill bracket, and among all the top racers, our boy Jayden held it down all weekend and walked away with the 3rd place spot. Congratulations Jayden! Scroll down to find a full list of results and some stellar pics snapped this weekend.

The Chief ladiga Silver Comet Skate Challenge is a 3 day, 188 mile stage race on the Silver Comet Trail between Georgia and Alabama. The course is 94 miles, longboard skateboarders compete for fastest finishing time over a 3-day period. On the final day of Ladiga, the skaters push the entire 94 miles back to the finish – a true testament to the dedication of these athletes. Bustin is an urban push company, naturally we are obsessed with this type of event. Huge respect to the field of skaters who will participate in the Ladiga event this year.
