Hello shredders and shreddets, welcome to the first edition of Shipping Everything. I, Layne Moffett (aka Bruce Layne), Bustin HQ’s warehouse manager and head of shipping department will be leading you on weekly adventures including new special projects, customized one of a kind boards and other skate related journeys going on around Bustin HQ.
Today at Bustin Boards warehouse HQ we invited a Baltimore City technical high school to tour our space, as well as learn the process of building a skateboard from start to finish. The warehouse crew took the kids through each step, breaking down the details of building up the board components and teaching the mechanics of how each component works together. After learning the process of building a board hands on, each kid left with their very own board, personally build by them.
In other news, today Matt K put the final touches on his special release Yoface 39 boards, signing and numbering each one personally. From there I packaged them up tight and sent them out the door to 10 lucky shredders who acted quick enough to get one of these limited run boards. (PRO TIP: Check out BustinBoards.com daily to not miss out on any special release boards.) Also stay tuned everyday to the Bustin Blog for daily events, and catch up with your homie Bruce Layne to see what i’ll be shipping next!
From the man (Bill Rice) himself:
“Everything in Korea is skate-able. The roads and the city. Gong to S.Korea was similar to getting off the plane and arriving in the future. Everyone has nice cars, clean streets, and neon lights everywhere. Illegal drugs are super illegal there but they love their legal drugs. Everyone smokes and drinks… BUT, if you’re Korean and you smoke cannabis in California, then fly home and they find out, you go to jail.
Everyone I met was super friendly and easy to talk to and there didn’t seem to be any sort of homeless problem. I can’t wait to go back for Koreas first IDF race in April – the road looks amazing.
The 1 Love Skate Shop in Seoul was one of the best shops I have ever visited. They had longboards and skateboards, giant TVs playing rad videos, and a really good vibe. We set up a rail out front one day while I was there and had a good session. The shop is also right down town and close to all the action!
Thanks and shout-out to Young for all the hospitality and love!”

A few weeks ago, New York City hosted the annual Broadway Bomb – one of, if not THE, largest gatherings of board pushers in the world. This outlawed, unsanctioned race is the result of a handful of stoked skaters growing a 15 person cruise, into the HUNDREDS of riders who assemble every year to dodge traffic, pedestrians, and sometimes the LAW! Lanna Apisukh was on hand this year and posted up at the 30th street mark to take some fun snaps of the action – so without further adieu, check out these pics and hit up Lanna’s page for more of her work!
Welcome back kids! Last week on “Built By Bubbles” we took the first steps towards developing a production level board! We thought about the board, we thought about what we wanted the board to be, we considered the board’s own personal feelings, and we landed on a shape (to be fair, we landed on version 1.0 – plenty more versions to come!)
