„Joseph Biais, den man heutzutage gut als Vans EU Teamrider und Carhartt Teammanager kennt, ist schon eine gute Zeit lang im Game. Wir schauen beispielsweise immer noch gerne seinen Ender Part in Guillaume Périmony’s „J’aime les filles“ von 2014. Für den heutigen BFTP gewährt uns der Franzose einen Einblick in die Videoparts, die ihn während seiner Jugend beeinflussten und ihn zu dem Style-Garant machten, der er heute ist.“

Evan Hernandez “In Bloom”

This is probably one of the first skate videos I’ve ever watched with my friends (most likely downloaded from e-mule). We would put it on all the time, before skating as well as afterwards. I think we loved this one so much because it featured so many younger skaters (and we suddenly felt like we could relate)… But my favourite part, by far, was Evan Hernandez. I mean, he was the smallest guy, certainly around the same age as myself and he skated a lot of gaps at the time. Me and my friends didn’t have too much pop back then, couldn’t really get up on proper ledges and thus, were hyped to jump down gaps and stairs as well. But not only that, I’ve always loved the combo of music / tricks / style in that part. I feel like it transports a certain energy. Also he had a sick style for a kid. Just check the way he pushes between those two sets of stairs at minute 1:04. I also love that massive kickflip at minute 3:17 and remember it being used as an ad for TSA.

Spanky “This is Skateboarding”

Just like “In Bloom”, I’ve watched “This is Skateboarding” countless times. My favourite part was Spanky’s, once again one of the younger guys in the video. Yet he skated in a super mature way, he skated a bit of everything (when most of the rest of the video was rather focussed around rails and stairs), and he dressed really well. You could feel that even back then, he had quite some taste… It’s because of him that I’ve put on slim pants for years to come… in this part I’ve also seen a switch bigspin for the first time, and I feel like it was him who made this trick popular for a good while.

Stefan Janoski “Subtleties”

I think this was the first time I’ve seen Janoski skate and I got captivated straight away. Obviously, his style is something particular and his somehow contorted posture makes him really interesting. But it was especially his trick selection that made the difference. One could say that he made a point of doing not necessarily the most complicated yet really hard tricks (just like all those switch 50-50s, 5-0s on round rails)… That one backside 5-0 on the flatbar is a great example. I’ve also got the impression that he made switch backside 5050s cool – one of the most classy tricks.
