Peter Line in Forum’s “The Resistance”
Throwback Thursday, #tbt, or whatever you wanna call it, Peter Line’s part in Forum’s “The Resistance” was a standout. Actually, most of his parts were. From his early Mack Dawg days(pioneering inverted spins), to original and innovative street riding in the more recent Forum vids, Peter Line has always been an influence on snowboarding. This part isn’t the longest, probably not his best, but for whatever reason it definitely stands out in my mind as a favourite. Maybe it’s the song, maybe the it’s the Ralph Steadman art used in the editing, or maybe it’s just the classic Peter Line style.
Bastien Salabanzi: The Lost Part
When Bastien Salabanzi first came to the forefront of the international skateboard scene all anybody knew about him was that the rode for Flip, he was originally from the Congo and he was one of the most talked about up and comers. And the fact that he was hyped on/cheered for himself. Regardless of your opinion on the last point, his skill is undeniable.
This “Lost Part” was put together by Ewan Bowman at Flip and spans Bastien’s later years at Flip and Etnies(approximately 10 years ago!?). It certainly doesn’t disappoint. Like it says in the intro, it was ahead of the game, and still stands today. Enjoy Bastien Salabanzi: The Lost Part.
