Julien Stranger
« on: March 04, 2007, 08:47:39 PM »
One of my all time favorites.  Just got his most recent Anti-Hero deck (Keep Iraq Beautiful!) and it got me wondering.....has there been any recent footage of him?  I haven't seen Tent City yet, so I don't know if he is in that.  But what's he been up to other than writing all over photos for Anti-Hero ads.

he's still skating tough as ever and manages to stay away from cameras. he recently left sf to live across the bay in oakland.

this should be changed to another of the ever so popular appreciation threads so we can get some youtube up in this.

Damn,

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  if you can't perform in front of a camera, then why do you think you are worthy of earning an income off skateboarding.  What kid really cares about this guy?  Where and when was his last part?  How much of an impact did it make?  The answer:  NONE!


If a tree falls in the woods and no body's there to hear it........

you should just fuck off...yes, first to front board a rail (nearly 20 years ago)... check the skypager video and get schooled fool.

i hadn't put that together, but you are spot on.  i just watched the gnar gnar part again, and they have very similar styles and tricks. i think it's an even more apt comparison than that of olson and fowler.

being ancient, i prefer julien, but still it is rad to see a kid skate like that.

Julien will kill anything you put in front of him. he's no camera whore and that adds to his appeal. straight,raw , real skateboarding.

he has the best nollie flip i've ever seen, and the only one i'd ever use the word gnarly to describe.  it's kind of like how ave makes tech ledge skating look like he's skating a backyard pool.

He has the most beautiful railslide to fakie out in the middle of a ledge.  Changed my mind about railslides on ledges.  He needs a photo section devoted just to him.  Starting with that photo at china banks with scabby ankles.

both of his lines at blackrock are perfect.  1. boardslide to fakie, backtail to fakie. 2. backlip, fs 180 nosegrind revert.  the backlip is hands down the smoothest ledge trick i've ever seen.

Julien is one of the best, period. He's done what few other skaters have, made the public want more footage and photos.

when did he get so damn good?  i know the front board was milestone, but other than that his footage in sick boyz and  speedfreaks doesn't really stand out for the time. 

what about in fucktatrds when he skate benicia? that kickflip straight over one of the banks is definitly one of the best ever.

that backside 180 over the street gap, it's like he just pops a little ollie and turns his shoulders.  arms never above his shoulders.  he's too fucking good.

blood was good way before you ever heard about him and has been since. public exposure was not his friend.  you must actually skate with someone in person before you can truly know there skating. he will be dope 4-ever
