Bustin Boards has partnered with OverBored.org to skate the nation in a vege-oil fueled bus. Along the way we are trying to demonstrate this new generation of skaters has more on their minds than causing mischief. We want to push a movement of service/ giving back and to do so we will be making stops to showcase green initiatives, community service orgs, nonprofits, and the like.
skate across america
Whats up people. Just touching base from the road on my way across country to setup Bustin west coast in LA. I’m driving across with my cousin David, first heading to Salt Lake City to board for the weekend before dropping down to the stunner city early next week to get down to business. With the Volvo packed to the gil, we are cruising down Rte 80 coming off of the exit for Elkhart, Indiana, made famous for yesterday’s visit by President Obama. Though his visit was a pretty big deal in Elkhart and drew a decent crowd, it paled in comparison to the welcome we received pulling into the local gas station in Bustin Force One.
The video of the day is episode 1 of OverBored, featuring Bustin team rider King Solomon. Originally planned for August 2008, the OverBored strategy to skate across America and promote conscious consumerism was delayed because of early winter weather conditions. Using the cold, snowy season to train and network, www.OverBored.org is stronger than ever.
The skate will begin late April and is single team trek from New York City to Los Angeles, different from the 2008 agenda. I will be participating and keeping a daily journal and potential video blog to share my experience. Representing Bustin Boards, I look forward to sharing the incredible sport of longboarding to the random curious and exposing our experiences on the web. My daily journals will be posted and linked to the Bustin BLog so STAY TUNED!!!
The OverBored crew is a carefully selected ramdom sample of longbarding talent that will keep every audience interested. Our talented video producer will publish frequent vlogs to keep an objective eye on our trip. Below is the 1st video procuced by the original crew, and an idea of the stoke we spread in the NYC skate scene.
