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.
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.
Occupy Pando III is going down Friday, December 27 2014! For the third year, Grand Rapids #BackYardUnderground shredder Zepplin Zeerip will be hosting Occupy Pando in partnership with Pando Winter Sports Park.
“Last year, as we gained notoriety and increased event recognition, we saw nearly fifty competitors and over two hundred spectators visit Pando for the event. This upcoming seasons event will be very similar to the last, in that we will add wallrides and street features to the pipe while placing emphasis on it’s natural turns by building up larger hips and quarterpipes throughout it. ” – Zeppelin
Pando Winter Sports Park is the Birthplace of Competitive Snowboarding. Jake Burton won a competition here in the 1970’s. Bustin is more than amped to support cross-season throw-downs like Occupy Pando because the backyard snowboard scene is the roots of many side-stance sports. It’s what got us into into skating hills, because it was cross-training when the snow melts. DH Skateboarding is basically snowboarding in the summer, so we’re hooking it up with some mad shredworthy decks for the podium and few lucky rippers.
The homies at MichiganBoarder.com hooked it up with event coverage from 2013. Zep says this year the features will be changed up and there will be a DIY section for that extra naughty. I’m stoked to be there with the Bustin tent and crew! Don’t miss out on Friday, December 27!
