What happened to Matte Linder? I saw like a brief appearance of him in Bratte's video but other then that he hasnt released his own video for like a year. And, why did Lindroth quit?

Bother are coincidentally still freestyling again, and you can see both in a DVD by a Swedish Freestyle ("jackass") team called Maukas.

Lindroth quit ages ago really because he was bored of freestyle and felt there was no fun in improving any further. he did make a few sitdown demos after that that are on the depths of youtube somewhere...

I think, as in the dvd, he and Tobbe are still doing lps and performing as HFK.

MatteLinder is basically doing the same thing, though he was still in contact a bit more with the wider freestyle community (and Lindroth was kind of a mystery for a while).

Hes been in a few videos, a couple of performances with Palle, Bratte and i think Oli, and of course Maukas' DVD.

heres links to it, its filmed in Swedish,

Do you know what happened to Palle after the first PATW Sputnik? I mean he didn't even do it the second times in ages! I heard that was because of an injury but I didn't really think so. Do you know why? :?

Sputnik, do you know what happened to both freestylersdownunder and nasfreestyle.co.uk? Both sites seem to be down. Seems like their hosting/domains expired. I don't know if you are in touch with MickyD or whoever is in change, but I would like to help with the hosting and bring those two forums back up online.

NAS is here http://76.162.8.8/index.php , if you have an account you can log in there, it'll say 'error', then revist the link and you'll be logged in.

its basically gone to shit, Jimmy left the forum to Adam H from FDU and when the domain expired he buggered off i think.

"wtf... i thought nas was gone... i had no idea we could still get on it...

adam told me ages ago that it was dead, cus there is no1 to pay for it or anything... same with fdu...

thank god its still up...

ill be posting here from now on, feels like ive missed so much "

i dont know about the FDU situation but i think its expired too.

Beyond Football is where soccergrip relocated to.

Palle hasnt done another PATW (at least on camera) since the first one, no. i think it might well be to do with an injury, because PATW is a stupidly wearing trick on your legs, and will fuck them up if you do it too much.

another angle is that there are a load of people that do PATWs now, so whereas if he was the only one people might ask him to do it more, but as he isnt theres no need.

thirdly, all palle really does now is LPs. only one person has done a patw in an lp that ive seen, and its quite dumb to try to. so really he sticks to combos and less hard tricks for his lps.

Lol ecuabol :oops: i dont remember dates, but firstly he chaned his freestyle alias to his name, Erick Farfan. then he 'stopped' freestyle, but afterwards made a few other 'farewell' demos. then he diddnt reappear for a while and there was speculation as to why he stopped when he was improving so fast, a load of crap really, a bit like lindroth. He made a couple of funny dancing videos like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNH07kCPSCM and very recently he's come back and made a video entering the BeyondFootball competition with this vid here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8zoEZfyi3c
