Testing Bustin Boards’ “Bruno PRO” Skateboard Deck:
We hit up some local spots, mild hills, and a decently-sized mini ramp to see what this board is all about.
Bustin’s “Bruno Pro” deck measures in at 33.6″ in length and roughly 8.5″ in width. It features a 16.3″ wheelbase with both new school and old school mounting options as well as some mild concave to keep you locked-in without feeling uncomfortable.
We found the length of the deck to be just right for a rider looking for a wider stance and/or some increased stability on the slopes. The nose and tail kicks provided a nice amount of leverage for aerial maneuvers and shenanigans. The thickness of the deck also allows for it to take some abuse without showing much wear.
The most appropriate setup we found for this board involves a minimal amount of riser and wheels under 60mm: anything more than that caused the tail to feel a bit funny. The weight of the deck itself could stand to be reduced as it did feel a bit heavy at times, and the width could be increased a tiny bit and we wouldn’t be upset!
The length and construction of the Bruno Pro make it a great choice as a street-, park-, and hill-slashing hybrid. We’d suggest setting it up with some 155-159mm trucks and your 60mm wheels of choice and taking it to the streets! We give this board two kicks up!
