“In 2001, Bustin Boards founder Ryan Daughtridge built his very first skateboard in his father’s barn. A few years later he was in New York City making uniquely engineered longboards designed to move faster around town. Obsessed with making boards that would push farther and smoother, he soon opened the first Bustin Labs location in a 3,500 loft space outside of Manhattan. Since then, Bustin Boards Company has handcrafted over 100,000 custom boards for riders around the world.”
