The Flip team visits Tom Penny in France in 1999, bringing along a young Bastien Salabanzi for the first time. This episode is just too epic.
When you head out with Appleyard, Rowley, and Arto you're going to have productive, clip-stacking missions for sure. As well as some brutal battles.
Rowley, Arto, and Bastien continue to search and destroy spots around Oz including a demo in the rain with Dollin.

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.

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.
