Personally, this early 00s period of Euro skating with Puzzle videos, Kingpin and Lordz/early Cliché is the time I’m most sentimental about in skateboarding. I like how it sort of felt as if there was this sacred insiders-only kind of vibe, replete with no-push lines, flatground done well, and often immaculate trick selection done at gorgeous urban plazas. It was becoming increasingly difficult to relate to all the rail chomping madness over in the States at the time, so what people like William Phan and Flo were offering was such a welcomed change.
This video was rinsed by my friends and I to a ridiculous amount. I must have watched it over 200 times. Nice to gain a further insight into stories from that time in this article. Also, the article addresses the eventual demise of the brand which is something that had never really been explained before.
