Bustin Out Holiday Cheer

It is always better to give than to receive and being the Holiday Season, there is no better time to remember this simple proverb.  We here at Bustin have been beyond blessed this year to have had so many of y’all out there support us by giving one of our skateboards as the gift that keeps on giving to so many of your loved ones. Feeling all of this Community Support made it very clear that we had to reciprocate the gesture and spread the stoke for our selves.  In line with this theme, a couple members of The Bustin Crew packed up the van and mobbed over to a local middle school to dish out some early gifts from Santa to a group of students who achieved perfect attendance this past semester.

Skateboarding is much more than an activity or simply just a means of transportation around your local neck of the woods. To us here at Bustin, skateboarding is the ultimate gift that teaches life lessons that can propel individuals physically, as well as mentally, through any hurtles thrown at them. These 15 students are now members of our community and we cannot be more stoked to have them on board with us as together as we will continue to Push More and Stay Stoked! 

Thank you to everyone involved on the backend to make this a reality for these very deserving young people. Looking forward to seeing y’all pushing through the streets and hopefully getting some more sessions in at HQ together soon!


Push More Rep Events: Huaxtla Dh 2017

This past weekend, our Push More Rider Rep Salvador De la Torre went full send on a radical event which brought out riders from all over his local area of Guadalajara, Mexico.  His race, Huaxtla Dh 2017 was held on a user friendly incline that allowed each participant to push themselves but also catered to progression for riders of all skill levels. Running heats for Girls, Amateurs,  as well as Masters, this truly was a #CommunityCommitted event with an end goal simply of providing a place for everyone to rally together and have fun wiggling down a hill.

This is exactly the reason we started the Bustin Push More Rep Program which was and is to help support fellow skaters as they support grass roots movements like this in their neck of the woods. Skating is much more than just an art style, its a life style composed of real life community members that collaborate to create one of the most unique atmospheres on earth when they assemble in numbers. Salvador is one of the latest Community Contributors but we are amped to see how our growing number of Push More Reps are able to impact skateboarding as a whole in the upcoming future.

To join the ranks and begin earning not just Bolts for simply Pushing More but also to start working toward building a bigger and better skateboarding community for us all to enjoy, mob over to the Rep Portal and toss in your application!  We are skaters looking to give back to the fellow skaters out there who have supported us along the way so sign up today to join the Push More Family and together lets build the community we desire to be a part of!

Each 1 Teach 1 Baltimore Lessons

Here at Bustin Boards it is not only our passion to create unique one of a kind skateboards but also to develop skateboarders to ride them. Skateboarding is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give a person which is why it’s one of our main objectives to make skateboarding accessible to anyone who may be interested.

To facilitate  this we are going to be hosting our Each 1 Teach 1 Free Lesson every second Saturday of every month at Bustin HQ in Baltimore MD. This is a place for anyone and everyone to come out and test out shapes from our line up and receive expert riding tips no matter what skill level you may be at. Skateboarding is for everyone which will be reflected by this light hearted, fun focused atmosphere that is welcoming to riders of any type.

Boards and helmets will be available for anyone who wants to try them or may not have equipment of their own to bring. All participants must be 18 years of age or have a parent or guardian present to sign a release waiver before beginning to shred.

The session will be hosted at Bustin HQ located at City Garage in South Baltimore from Noon until 2pm. All info will be blasted out via our social media channels prior to the event going off so make sure to give us a follow on Instagram or Facebook to keep up to date on all the details!

The Bet on Baltimore students took to skateboarding almost as well as they took to entrepreneurship skills.

Also, for those who got the bug and simply cannot wait for the second Saturday of the month, we will be offering private lessons by appointment only from 9am-11am each Saturday and Sunday (excluding the Each 1 Teach 1 Saturday) in which personalized lessons can be given to any age or skill level rider.
