Profile:

Born in rural Pennsylvania, Buster Halterman was raised on an 18-acre farm with chickens, pigs and a barn full of ramps. He turned pro in 1985, moved out west in 1990, and he has been a mainstay on the pro circuit ever since. Although this veteran athlete's true love is skating, Buster is also a doting husband and loving father of two. When he isn't riding, Buster is a freelance designer of shoes and clothing for companies like Planet Earth. He is an executive committee member of P.R.O. (Pro Riders Organization).
