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, The Netherlands, 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.

Born in Vancouver, Les has been backpacking and adventuring around the globe most of his life. Skateboarding made it easier to get around, eventually leading to a long trek skate adventure across Kenya. With a new appreciation for skateboards and some good connections, Les dropped everything to make skateboarding his life and, as they say, it's all been downhill since. Now Editor at Skate[Slate] and one of the owners of Flatspot Longboards, Les spends the rest of his time raising his first kid, plugged into the skate-web, and skating with Coast Longboarding.
