Quick shoutout to Bustin’s first official team rider. Harlem’s Host came on the scene back in 07′ and quickly became one of the fastest, most creative riders in the New York Scene just as it was exploding. Today Marc is doing BIG things with his organization Good Vibes Creative Minds, check him out!
While on the first leg of the #ForAllWhoPush Tour, team rider Jayden Smith made a little compilation of all the fun and shenanigans. Watch while the Bustin crew plays skateboards and in general has a good time!
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 partnered up with AGA nation Action Sports Agency to bring you the Bikes, Boards and Beach Series Distance Skateboard Race in Racine, Wisconsin July 31- August 1 2015. The event is hosted on the beautiful sandy beaches of Racine, along the Lake Michigan shoreline. The push competition is a 3 mile short-course sprint on the Lake Michigan Pathway adjacent to the beach. Will add more classes depending on participation, but podium winners of the sprint win the prizes.
