Hughes is one of those dudes who kills it but never put out a full part so most people have no clue.

Wow, I never knew they had Bastien under the axe.  Kinda shocking. He's an ass and all but a damned good skater.  Cruel but a proper move I guess


I missed the thread...d'oh

Hmmm, not sure where Hughes will go, what about something like Popwar due to his flat mate ? or Bueno i could see that, maybe a Santa Curz potential as well

Or not, he's been wondering around in the ether of not sponsered/no coverage for a while

Greco and Ellingtons sunglasses range - seriosuly how fucking cares

Same with Reynolds clothing line

(2 more things in skateboarding not to care about)

Bastien - he's go enough comp money for him and his brother to retire, actually now he's not on Flip it'll be interesting to see if his brother actually try's to get a real sponser as he didn't need to before as Batien just sent him packages from Flip. . . .

Interesting

So what's up with York is he on or off Chocolate, that's never been confirmed

Bastien could be totally sponsoreless and still live off of skating because when he skate's a contest, he usually pulls out a top 3 finish. So I dunno which way he'll go.

Is Bastien's brother good at skating or is he just leeching off his brother's talents?

No his brother is seriously rad, skated with in Barca pertty much for a straight 4 months, really nice guy, super chilled, the best fakie flips i've seen, totally decent guy, i didn't know who he was, till Milan (one a Croation local MACBA kid i hung out with alot) was speaking to him about his brother, the is sort of clicked, but, yeah he basically said he wasn't interested in being sponsered as Bastian was paying for a flat in Barca for them, and sent him packages from Flip and Vans.

When Bastien turned up he'd just won a shit load of comps, he was actually pretty mellow, skated so fucking consitent, his brother hadn't seen him in like 9 months or something and was freaking about how much he'd improved, then his brother got all amped and him and Bastien started trying shit loads of stuff it was really funny watching them skate together - it's all in the shoulders for those backside flips hahaha (that had to be the quote of the night)

Anyway point was his borther fucking rad, and wasn't interested in sponsership at all, he was happy with what his borther sent him, got a few Flip boards off his bro super cheap to, basically for a smoke and some booze, which was rad

Thats so rad man I bet it was gnarly to watch those two just skating and hanging. Must be something in their genes, but they definitely have the talent. I can only imagine how easily they were throwing tricks down.

HA - yeah it was funny to watch, you can see his brother "learns" trick and then practices them till he's got them down, Bastien just did them then explained how to do them (like that helps)

But seriously next time you do a backside flip, keep your shoulders over your nose and tail, and swing them, it's in the shoulders, it's hard to type what i actually mean hahaha, but yeah the shoulders

5boro Is a sick company for sure, But I wouldnt really consider them an NYC company, Though thats the main image. There team has two people from NY, Bryon Winfrey and Danny Falla, The rest are from all over the place.  Steve Rodriguez is rad
They may not be from but with the exception of Charlie Wilkins they all live there and skate ther on the daily, and yes Rodriguez is rad, Pensyl kills it, and Barnes is underated nobody knows but they should!
