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.

Exploring Rockaway | A Glimpse Into New York Surfing

Follow Fire and Water, the upcoming NY Surf Documentary by Thomas Brookins.

After a long day in Manhattan I made the trek across the water to the narrow peninsula that sits just southeast of Brooklyn; Rockaway. If you’ve never been to Rockaway it can be a bit of a culture shock. Roughly 3 blocks wide, this beach is home to some of the richest culture in all of New York City. The bay is situated on the north side and the south side opens up directly to the Atlantic Ocean. Modern Rockaway isn’t as much of the rough-and-tumble telltale that you’ve likely heard about. The Rockaways were met with Hurricane Sandy in October of 2012, devastation ensued for the tiny peninsula in a way that no one could imagine. “We heard there was going to be flooding, but this street had never really seen more than about 4 inches of water.” This is Thomas Brookins, New York surfer, filmmaker, and de facto ambassador for his home of Rockaway. I was told there were houses floating up the street, pieces of the boardwalk thrown blocks away, carnage. Among the structures lost, memories went with them. Pictures, keepsakes, family heirlooms; entire lives and history were gone.

“We’re old – 19 years old to be exact. We sold our first skateboard and snowboard on November 10, 1995 out of our 700 sq ft shop in Portland, Oregon. We fell in love with longboarding in 1999 and have been selling them ever since to hundreds of thousands of customers ALL OVER THE WORLD.  Today, Daddies is the largest longboard shop in the world. Really.  We have a good time here at Daddies. But we take our work seriously. Longboarders have graciously rewarded us for our efforts by voting Daddies the 2012 and 2013 Best Online Longboard Shop.”

The New EQ – Bustin Boards NYC

Posted by on May 11, 2015 in Bubbles Blog, News, Reviews, Tech Talk | 0 comments

For this year we’ve re-re-released the EQ in a whole new iteration.  2014 saw the move away from the rocker / drop profile of the original EQ and the addition of our Honey-Comb Hollow-Core tech to greatly reduce weight.  The new mould featured an elliptical W-cave in the center of the deck, a progressive radial concave that worked with the W-bubble to create a slightly rockered platform, with a peaked waist for added strength.
