I think it's Bastiens time to go back to Europe. Didn't he win the best trick at Mystic cup this year again? Maybe Lordz will make a board for him?

Cliche? i dont think so.
actually, i dont think he fits on any team, besides flip cause he has been for quite long.

i say the new and improved (?) World Industries. They need someone to win contests.

He was still on Flip during the last Mystic Cup, and it was last Sunday, so I think that the webmaster just made a mistake.

Yeah, judging by the quality of the website, I doubt it's a completely reliable source of information. Even if he is a total pothead, I doubt they would kick him off. It's nothing compared to what Penny has done over the years, and besides Bastien has amazing talent and is utterly marketable, which is what Flip go for.

lots of rumours that bastien is on plan B.

i'm sure people on here don't like him but kids and other pros always seem to be into him.

He may be cocky, but the dude has some serious skills. I can't see him on any other company except Flip

yea dawg definetely. companies make decisions about what riders they are gonna put on based on race. it doesn't have to do with talent or marketability. no way. they need to have a diversified team and at least one black rider to show they aren't closet racists.

it makes sense that someone would leave flip with the amount of pros that they now have. There is only so much money to go around on a team with such big names on it. It would be cool if he formed a new European based team with flo and javier sarmiento but I doubt that will actually happen

^ speaking of...what's the deal with javier and a board sponsor?

in barcelona, theres this rumor floating around that bastien was convinced by natives from his home place that if he gave up skating he would become immortal, through some voodoo shit. apparently to test his new found greatness he jumped off a tree and broke both his legs. at least he didnt die!

brian wenning was saying apparently bastien was telling alot of people he saw some witch doctor bitch that put some wierd voodoo cast on him when he was young that gives him amazing abilities and if he gets salt water on the wound she cut in his hand he will lose his abilities

sounds like bastien is just one big ball of floating shit, i bet hes actually from south central and just likes to run his mouth. i hope he ends up on hectik.

Effective immediately:
Due to irreconcilable differences of opinion, Flip Skateboards has decided to terminate sponsorship and support of Bastien Salabanzi.
Although this has been a very difficult decision, we believe it to be in the best long term interests of both parties.
Flip wishes Bastien good health and success in his future.
