Oliver Barton’s Top 5 YouTubes Of The Week: Bastien Salabanzi

This weeks OBTFYTOTW is inspired by the interview that Mackenzie Eisenhour posted here on with Bastien Salabanzi about the emergence of his lost video part. For a lot of people, the first time they got to see Bastien skate outside of a few scattered clips on Puzzle or at some European contests was his part in the 2000 Lordz video release Conspiracy.

Lordz videos were always choc full of before it's time skateboarding insanity, Alex Carolino in They Don't Give A Fuck About Us being a perfect example.

Seeing the way Bastien would skate in real life was way more shocking than anything video or photos could ever depict, when you're blessed with incredible talent, you don't need to warm up…

I still can't believe how face melting Bastien's good homie Florentine Marfaing's Puzzle 13 part is, check out how young Bastien is in the intro for idea of how long ago this dropped.

Really apologizing from the pinnacle:
