Michigan longboarding roots are dense in distance skateboarding.  Commuting point A to B is part of everyone’s life, and it feels good on on a skateboard.  Only the past 30 years or so the majority of Americans have invested a major chunk of their savings into automobiles, and bikes- to commute point A to B.  Automotives are rad!  Bikes are pretty cool too.  But, you can’t drive an automotive on a State-Trail networks.

The Divide Distance Skateboarding Challenge is a hybrid skate event offering 5k/10k distance races + a hybrid push with speed sections.  Longboard skateboarding was added to the Manton, Michigan event because the road is closed for a bike race and the bikers are interested to see how skaters can keep up on a course with climbs and descents.  The course is not very technical, but does offer thrilling speed sections, corners and climbs.  There is a campground on a nice lake in Manton where we’ll camp out for the evening should you choose to stay and hang out in northern Michigan for the evening – bring a tent.  Family friendly event, until someone takes their pants off.

Team Bustin “For All Who Push” Tour: Sun and Snow Sports – Plymouth, MI

Posted by on Jul 7, 2015 in Mike Stories, News, Shop of the Week | 0 comments

Sun and Snow – Plymouth on Facebook!  https://www.facebook.com/sunandsnowsports?fref=ts

Bustin Boards “For All Who Push” tour is at Black Squrl in Wisconsin today, Cal-Surf in Minnesota tomorrow then on the road south to Burning Spider Stoke Company in Missouri on Friday.  The tour is pretty wild, we get to skate with a bunch of new rad people at every stop and learn a bunch of new terrain.  Everybody on the FAWP tour has different skate background and style that really helps the tour get weird.  The best part of the tour is everybody throws down.  From you who is reading this to your Mom – everybody that we meet is pretty amped up about the tour when we roll through.  I think it’s because our crew is a bunch of genuinely nice people who love to skate.  We represent 4 countries and even Alaska <Bill Rice.

There is no RIGHT way of skateboarding in our crew, The Bustin crew is all about creating a challenge and overcoming it in all aspects of skating.  We’ll find a spot and one of us will slay it while the rest of us play around until we figure out how to have fun on it.  That’s skateboarding.  Everything we skate (almost) is man-made (except grass runs, etc), so when we overcome challenging terrain – everybody gets rad.  It’s simple, its skateboarding.  Somehow, we were lucky enough to afford to send a pack of our friendly wolves into my country – the Midwest.  A Land that the bi-coasters don’t understand, the simple life.

Sun and Snow Sports is a rad Action Sports Shop in Plymouth, Michigan.  Team Bustin planned a visit in June and kicked it with the locals for the day.  Our team even had the chance to get some ZZZ’s with one of the employees – which is just the icing on the cake!  We’re blessed to work with such good people.  I hope you enjoy the video above – send to me by the guys at Sun and Snow.  We appreciate it guys!  World:  Enjoy Summer footage in Michigan.
