We recently flew over to Europe, crammed ourselves and skateboard gear in a van, and set sail on a two thousand plus kilometer skate shop tour across Europe. Our Bustin Boards Summer Shop Tour 2016 crew consisted of Toti “Bicicleta”, Carla Javier, Marcus Bandy, and Josh Dunn with stops in Germany, Spain, TheNetherlands, Belgium, and France.
What an epic adventure we had! We skated so many rad places and made so many new friends. A huge thanks to Lisa Karina, Martijn Schrama, and crew of Sick Boards, our “French Connection” Erwin Thomas, Richie Loffler of MDCN, Marcus and crew from Mantis Longboards Shop, Heiko and crew at Concrete Wave Skateshop, Gordon Timpen for the hospitality in Germany, Ed Martinez-sola for the hospitality in France, Marco from The Cave, the District 16 posse, the Dumpstijl family, the Nomad shop crew, our Ride All homies, the All Bros crew, Giles and crew at Fortrate, Axel Serrat, Alexandre Gdiu, David Casabon and a huge thank you to all the skaters we kicked it with and who we now call our friends.
Bustin Boards’ Skate Everything Project is all about mixing it up and having fun. This summer’s Bustin Out To Giant’s Head Tour included three Skate Everything Project events. The first being a mini board race and slide jam at Switchbacks in Portland Oregon. Next up was a 2×4 Chinese downhill race at Maryhill. And lastly, we did a launch ramp lake jam on Lake Okanagan during the Giant’s Head Freeride in Canada.
Our friend Melvin Herrmann of Spain recently filmed this rad video of Clark Patrick ripping the Madrid and Altea streets on our new 2016 Bamboo X SHRIKE deck. If you enjoy freerding slides and classic street style trickery then this video of Clark skating on our new SHRIKE is gonna get you sparked for some stoke.
Our friends at H-Productions in South Korea just sent us this rad video of Juyoung Byun sidewalk surfing on our new 2016 Daenseu deck in the and around streets of Seoul. If you enjoy fluid, fancy footwork skate action then this video of Joyoung’s skating on our new Daenseu is sure to get you frothing for a session.
A new short film by Crystal Moselle called THAT ONE DAY and commissioned by Italian high fashion women’s clothing and accessory brand Miu Miu (a subsidiary of Prada)has just been released as the 12th installment of their Women’s Tales series and it stars Bustin Boards NYC Street Crew rider Rachelle Vinberg andaccompanied by her lady friends the Skate Kitchen. The video is pretty fun overall and if its goal was to empower young women through skateboarding and friendship, then we think it achieves it’s goal quite nicely. If its goal was to also show off some radical Miu Miu threads we think it succeeded in doing that as well.
Anyway, Rachelle has a mean kickflip (btw, she and her friends rip in general) and it’s aways rad to see a posse of rad shredder ladies doing inspirational things on and off their skateboards.
