THE DUSTERS CALIFORNIA TRIAD
As skateboarders, we thrive to discover and experience new spots to ride and hills to bomb. Every season we pack the van up with all of our new boards and camera equipment in search of hidden gems to ride. This time we were itching to get something off of our bucket list. It’s something you can only do in very few parts of the world... Surf, skate, and snowboard all within the 24 hour anomaly that we like to call a day. Everyone talks about it but we asked ourselves, who has really done it?
The crew who set voyage to conquer this marathon consisted of Dusters riders Tom Ryen, Justin Burbage and Malachi Greene, Cinematographer Brent Black and Dusters Creative Director Nano Nobrega. Tom is best known for his appearance skating and snowboarding in the Fuel Tv show "The Adventures of Danny & the Dingo." Justin was born and raised on the east shore of Oahu surfing and skating all day every day and Malachi is a downhill machine out of Santa Cruz, CA. Wether you were directing, filming or riding, everyone in the van was down for completing the full triad.
Starting off the day at 7am, we headed to Breakwall, Venice Beach for a quick dip. The ocean was flooded with Los Angeleans from Burbank to PV, the conditions were glassy, but it was still a fun time nonetheless. After surfing was checked off the list, we moved east to skate one of San Bernardino’s most attractive skateparks, Fergusson Park. This is where the boys shined and the park had lots to offer for testing out the new Grind Frames and the Cusco Cruiser. From there, we headed up the mountain towards our final destination, stopping briefly for Malachi to get a taste of the gravel on our brand new Keen Downhill board. Once we made it to Big Bear Lake, the sun was long gone, but we still had time to get in a night session in at Snow Summit, ending the day with some icy carves and fun park features. As always, the discoveries were exciting, the laughs with friends were memorable, and the fun we had testing out new boards was epic.
"All we roll is surf, skate and snow... The California dream is real!"
