William Royce – Somewhere In Spain (Part 3)

The third installment of Somewhere In Spain is live! In this new edit, William Royce smashes some of the fastest lines the mountains of Spain have to offer.

This summer we sent team riders Max Ballesteros, and William Royce to skate and film with teammate Toti Bicicleta along with Perropro and the crew at Salsito House in Spain. From their 10-day adventure, Perrorpro captured a series of short videos and raw-runs that we will be releasing as they are produced.

Traveling over 2,000km in 14 days, Bruno and Toti take you to places long forgotten across the farthest reaches of Spain. Oh and the skating? The teaser speaks for itself.

Coming this fall.

Battle at Boyne Mountain Presented by Action Board Shop

Battle at Boyne Presented by Action Board Shop, Sponsored by Bustin Boards among other industry sponsors was a rager!  Boyne Resorts is the second largest owner of Ski & Golf resorts in the United States.  We have successfully hosted an event on their turf which could mean more events at more ski resorts next year!  Everybody was stoked to play skateboards in the woods for 2 days.  Nobody complained.  Everybody wins!

Now for a little Boyne history lesson: Boyne Resorts was founded by Everett Kircher, Jim Christianson and John Norton in 1947, when a hill in Northern Michigan that was too steep and wooded to farm was sold to the co-founders for $1 by former State Senator Pierson.  A desire to keep his employees on staff between ski seasons led Kircher into golf. A friend suggested that a golf course might attract summer visitors. That was all Kircher needed. Using his father’s ancient Ford farm tractor, he carved out a sporty nine-hole, par-three layout near the Main Lodge. For decades the Hemlock course was a favorite to Boyne Mountain guests and visitors.

Basically, the lesson is together we have created a niche which Mr. Kircher might be interested in.  Originally, he created the Boyne Resort Golf Course to support his staff during the warm months of the year. he created jobs for skiiers.  Downhill skateboarding and Distance Skateboarding is now healthy enough to quantify a reason to design and build gravity sports specific paved courses to be used during the summer time.  Battle at Boyne was hosted on a service road, Whister Longboard Fest is hosted on a resort service road.  Push Culture Family Picnic event series utilized resort roads…

The state of the Skateboard union is the inception of ISF – International Skateboard Federation.  Downhill Skateboarding is regulated by the IDF.  Are ski resorts in the future of recreational skateboarding?  It seems to have happened with Camp Woodward at the hot spots. Street League? State Games of America?  Olympics?

This engine called skateboarding is just starting to rev up, whether some like it or not.

Skateboarding will always be skateboarding, but I am fascinated that we have new options to look forward to!  Thanks Boyne!  Thanks ABS!  Thanks Christian Lefley for the Edit!

Bruno the Kid has been turning heads for years with his innovative, flowing and effortless style. From the moment he stepped into our Brooklyn shop in 2010, we knew it was only a matter of time before he would be riding a pro-model designed just for him. As his style developed more flip-tricks, he transitioned from the Robot and Boombox of yesteryear, to the double kicked YoFace 39. In 2013, with his own oversized blend of our YoFace board, he took on Spain, Cali, China and (needless to say), New York City and showed the world what a 39″ skateboard is capable of. This year, a more sophisticated, high-flying, free-range style required a more refined, smaller board with the same hyper-skateboard feel and pop. We are stoked to release the 34″ double-kick BrunoPRO adorned with a painting of Bruno’s hometown in Spain by artist David Goode Hill.
More details will be available on August 15th, but here are some key specs to line up those setups:
33.5″ Long
8.5″ Wide
16.25″ Wheelbase
.375″ Concave
6.75″ Nose
6.25″ Tail
Laid up with 100% Canadian Maple right here in USA.
