In the early 2000s, Barcelona was a mythical skate utopia. Here's Arto, Appleyard, Bastien, Rowley, and Boulala.
An entire city is one big skate daydream for this young Flip squad. Here's Arto, Geoff, Appleyard, Bastien, Boulala, and others.
It's hard to imagine footage like this getting "lost", but things happen. When Ewan Bowman told us he was working on a never-before-seen part of Bastien we were stoked, but the final product is heavier than we ever could have imagined.
There's been a lot of mystery surrounding a full Bastien part that's never been seen. The rumors are over. It's real, it's jaw-droppingly incredible, and we're premiering it here this Friday.
This Lyon, France rail was the kind of spot that would give up 15 or 20 makes a session including an NBD or two. Or three.
You won't see Bastien, Sheckler, Gravette, Bingaman, and the rest of these bros in today's Dew Tour finals—doesn't mean they weren't ripping though.
This beast of a spot has witnessed many battles over the years. French Fred revisits a few of his more memorable sessions.
Time for a trip down memory lane. 2005 was a good year for KOTR, featuring high level trickery and top shelf hijinx.
The head to head brackets were set with the top 12 and it went down to Creager vs Reynolds for the finals. Big ups to the Boss for skating his ass off all weekend and walking away with 160 large.
Kyle Camarillo came back from Maloof with five sequences featuring Torey Pudwill, Dustin Dollin, Theotis Beasley, Bastien Salabanzi, and Felipe Gustavo. Plus a bonus sequence with Gonz.
Here's the zone 3 finals from the Maloof Money Cup. This was where the big guns went down but it was just one third of the contest, more to come...
