STREET ISSUES – First Generation Bustin Street Boards & Graphics. Click to enlarge.

I’ve been involved with Bustin Boards for several years. Working with them to develop and promote the brand, their mission is in line with SURE’s. With my main focus on the NYC market and developing Street Skating. I’m proud to announce that our Street shapes are being added to the online customization program for 2017.

Online customization for Bustin’s longboard and Cruiser shapes has been an important part of the company’s success over the years. Along with City Centered Push//Commuter boards, these two strengths have helped bring Bustin to the top of the Longboard market. Now they are bringing the customization experience Forward For All.

The updated website is a blast to use. Check it out as I bring you through the easy steps below. Then jump over BustinBoards.com and have some fun getting creative with design & color. Take some screen shots along the way to share. Continue reading

SURE Skateboards Founder Producing iPhone Video Series for Brooklyn’s Bustin Boards

21 Mar

SURE Skateboards owner and founder, Rob Rodrigues is filming and editing  a collection of skate videos for Bustin Boards. The series of short videos are intended to highlight the 2014 Bustin equipment lineup being ridden by local New York riders in and around the city. The videos are being shot entirely with an iPhone 5s for viewing on YouTube.

Rob shared his thoughts on using his phone for production. “The iPhone along with the inexpensive Olloclip lens system helps to keep the video clips relatively small in file size. This makes the editing process much quicker.” He added. “These videos are intended to look ‘low res’ and keep a raw street feel.”

The intention is to release several more episodes during the spring and summer season. Checkout the Bustin Boards Youtube Channel for these and all of their Video productions.

Longer Daze Part 1, Released July 10th.

Bustin Boombox, released on March 18th.

Bustin YoFace 32″, released on March 7th.

*Some of the skateboarders in the videos elect not to wear helmets while riding. SURE Skateboards advocates the use of helmets.

Skater Focus – Steven Vera

15 Sep

By Rob Rodrigues, September 15, 2013

18 year old, Steven Vera, has been ripping as a sponsored longboard skater for over two years. His style is “crossing borders and bridging gaps”. This kid is binging his flavor to the table and earning longboard respect from all areas of the skateboarding industry. Vera is also making a big splash with younger skaters, might be because he’s super Rad and super Chill. Peep a couple SURE photos of the man on the rise to watch.
