“The world’s first electric scooter designed around a skateboard. New York’s Bustin Boards and California’s La Scoota Company came together to create the most fun, most portable and most affordable premium electric scooter ever. Built around a custom Bustin Boards (E)Core™ skate deck for unreal levels of control, precision and flow. The custom concave and bamboo construction within the deck create a truly unique experience you can’t find on any other electric scooter.”

“In 2001, Bustin Boards founder Ryan Daughtridge made his very first skateboard in his dad’s barn. A few years later he was in New York City making uniquely engineered longboards designed for pushing around the city faster. He became obsessed with making boards that would push further and smoother, and soon opened the first Bustin Labs location in a 3,500 loft just outside of Manhattan. Since then the Bustin Boards Company has hand-crafted over 100,000 custom boards for riders all over the world.”
