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.

Bustin makes a longboard for just about every style of riding, but our roots are deep in that NY PUSH.   I was back in NYC last week for an annual dose of NYC Push Culture and to hang out with Team Bustin at the kick-off of our FOR ALL WHO PUSH tour along the East Coast and into the Midwest.  I learned that NY PUSH is EXACTLY what it used to be, and that got me fucking STOKED!

“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.”
