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.

They did go into why he left Flip, and all his other sponsors in tow. He even said he was difficult to deal with at that time and basically sabotaged himself.

There's also been a Jenkem interview with a more Jenkem version of things.

I remember a late 90s tour article (maybe it was Transworld) and little boy Bastien got a photo in there  doing a back smith on a fun box. Within a year or so he had his am check out and ads. I always thought that was some sick foreshadowing into his blowing up. He also had that 20 some odd page Thrasher interview that had some really sick shit in. Glad he's still out there at least.

In the Thrasher interview with him fakie flipping that brick 11 stair on the cover, it mentions that Flip dropped French Fred around the time Really Sorry was released after Fred cracked it at Bastien and choked him out in the van.

Found it! Thanks for that!

Tell the story about the time in Spain when Fred put you in the headlock--the Fredlock.

When he put my head in the seat? That was seriously right before his nervous breakdown. If Rune is not in the van, we're not allowed to even play with a lighter in front of Fred. He will brake in the freeway and kill us. I was just rolling a cigarette or something. We were not even rolling. we were waiting for you guys and I was rolling and he grabbed me by my neck. He slapped my hand and everything flew up by my face. I was like, "Why did you do that shit?" Then he went crazy and grabbed me by my neck.

Are you friends with him now?

I will never be really friends, but we try to, like, work together. You know?

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

Heís def more oblivious than some but Iím betting he acts like he doesnít know about certain things to generate a discussion.

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

They play it in the olympics. It's pretty entertaining.

i think he's fucking terrified of having a public, critical opinion on any person or brand in skateboarding

during the mj interview you could tell marc wanted to go futher into leaving chocolate and lakai but chris kept trying to steer the interview away, i think chris genuinely wants to avoid criticizing anyone in the industry

i mean, probably a smart career move, just doesn't always make for a good interview

also the dude is basically a soundboard of 7 or 8 different replies at this point

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!

idk, i think he's leaving something out of the story. in the interview he says that he left Flip BECAUSE he wanted to go back to France. but then he says he wanted to go back to France because he didnt want to skate with anyone else besides them (implying that they split before he made the decision to go back)

I caught that too, he definitely re-told the story about 5 minutes apart a little differently...who knows...it doesn't really matter. I think it might have been just a language barrier that Bastien used the wrong tense or something...maybe Crob was asking before moving to France and quitting Flip did you want to ride for anyone else? And Bastien explained it in broken english.

boom. on point. when i was "young" a guy i knew (older brother of a mongo pushing friend) sometimes skated with a sponsored skater who one time did skate with bastien. boy was that a trip! he was a full on super star and role model for a german kid from the countryside. all we ever watched skatewise was contest vhs tapes though, so...

When Kelly had a request for a trick he wanted to see for Bastien's upcoming thing for the Berrics I thought he was gonna say crook back lip followed by celebratory big up yourself fist pump.

Itís sick that Prod and Bastien are on the same team. If only Evan Hernandez kept skating...
