The Bustin EQ and its cousin, the Boombox, are the latest additions to the 2012 Bustin Boards lineup.. The EQ is designed as the ultimate foot locking freeride experience. The board maximizes footspace, allowing the feet to stand near the trucks, enhancing control and board feel, while incorporating radial drops and killer concave to lock onto your feet like bindings on a snowboard...almost. Rocker throughout the platform further locks you into the center of the deck and lowers the center of the deck to the ground, making this deck just as easy to push across town as many dropped decks on the market while still giving you the control of a topmount deck. Designed to be a rock-solid stiffy, giving you supreme control at big speeds and extreme grip through big slides!

The EQ was designed to fit 70mm wheels on most of today's popular trucks without bite. Larger wheels tend to be much less smooth during sliding, so for a freeride specific deck, we decided to incorporate as much footspace as possible rather than make room for wheels that don't really play into its strong points. If you do choose to downhill on this deck, you can set it up with 75mm wheels, and while static bite will be possible with medium to soft bushings, you shouldn't find yourself taking turns sharp enough at speed for bite to be an issue. At any rate, use good judgment and exercise caution. We particularly like Paris trucks, Calibers, Bears, and Indy 215s on this board for cast options.
