To each his own, but Bastien is a guy with a story to tell that hasn't been largely covered so far. I'm sure this is interesting to a lot people, myself included.

yeah, it would be much more interesting having bastien talk about someone else who he has never met in his
life for like 2 hours. Queff, you are truely a genius. what an innovative podcast format that would be. amazing.

We're used to Crob blindly praising his guests opinons. But now he stated that Jart was a "great company". Please Mr Roberts, hypocrisy has its limits.

This was a really good one. "Eight point two and a half" confuses me. I know what he's saying and I couldn't do a metric conversion on the fly but still.

How can Chris be so embedded in not just skateboarding but living in skateboard central southern California and have no idea about skateboarding?

I had always heard the rumor that after some skate comp he was seen with a crack pipe and thats the reasons he got kicked of all his sponnos, glad to hear that it was on his own accord wanting to go back to france!

I was at that famous Prague contest in 2007 I think, where he really seemed to be off his rocker. That's where he allegedly did blow on top of the ramps and he got kicked off / quit his sponsors soon after that.

He was definitely acting strange, crazy ego-tripping on the course. Mid-run going to the crowd stands to borrow a skate key, talking to himself etc. If he wasn't fucked up, he put on a good show. People were tripping like what the fuck is he doing. He didn't seem well.

I thought it was known that Flip made up a lot of rumors in an attempt to blackball him from the industry because he didn't wanna kf backlip el toro or whatever.

Only a few minutes in but I’m stoked he described European Handball. My lower back woes started from a high school game of this but whenever I mention it to anybody they’ve never heard of it. Apparently it only exists in Germany, France, and Saratoga Springs, NY.

i went to an overnight camp on the MA/NH border where a good euro play could turn a boy into a king.  game is unreal fun.  wish it caught on the states.

That is too bad as Bastien is awesome and this episode had a ton of laughs and insight. Easily one of the best.


Thank Bastien and the Nine Club crew.

Although it's probably too controversial for their target audience, I wish they would have touched that. Seeing not just Bastien's career, but the culture as a whole (because Bastien really was in the process of writing history at the time) sabotaged by the industry just because of the sponsors' interests was one of the first things to ever really bum me out on it. Naive young me was really bummed nobody would somehow leak that bit of general progression.

I was pleasantly surprised by how articulate Bastien is now. He has come a long way since the wildness of his early days. Come to think of his old ego trips under the light shed by this episode on his upbringing, I understand them a lot better now. Always thought he was a showman. I never expected him to be that much of a skate nerd either, he seems really passionate and liked to go in-depth about tricks and mental processes. Loved that.

My brain is numb to hearing "the Sorry video" ever again.

Chris Roberts is picture perfect for the job, but way too much.

One of the best videos on the Internet needs a repost:

Pretty nuts that he never did real rails until the Flip video then threw down hard. Doesn't really compute.

The greatest contest run of all time.
About his antics at contests, just imagine how would you act with the adrenaline of landing every trick you can think of in front of an audience going batshit crazy for you (Prague especially). Bastien seems like an eccentric guy so boom... you have a show.


All in all this was a great episode and Bastien is a legend!

Really great episode, such a chill humble guy. I'm sure the industry heads were listening waiting for something negative to be said about what happened to Bastien. Granted I wasn't expecting Nine Club to dive into it and sure enough they didn't. Here hoping for a Jenkem interview where it all gets put on the table. I felt like Bastien held back from saying things. In his weekend buzz he briefly mentioned about him and french Fred not getting along and the tension between them.
