One of the most talented skateboarders of our time, Bastien Salabanzi
is the latest phenomenon to join Arto Saari, Stefan Janoski, Ryan Sheckler and Rune Glifberg on the etnies Team for 2004.
Bastien's inclusion in skateboarding's elite began after winning the World Championships of Skateboarding in Germany, not once, but twice (2001 and 2002) in a row. Bastien accomplished the back-to-back feat before he was even old enough to drive. Since then, Bastien has won several more contests, received widespread media attention and is responsible for an incredible collection of video footage that includes groundbreaking parts in Flip Skateboards' highly acclaimed Sorry video and Really Sorry DVD, as well as the Lordz Wheels presentation, They Don't Give a F--k About Us.
Though Bastien has achieved so much at such a young age, it has been his matchless style and consistent skateboarding ability that has earned him the respect of his peers and recognition as one of skateboarding's brightest up-and-comers. Please join us in welcoming the one and only Bastien Salabanzi to etnies!
Bastien is supported by etnies Footwear, Flip Skateboards, Quiksilver Apparel, Fury Trucks and Lordz Wheels.
