Ecuabol still freestyles kind of actively... but im not sure he'd enter a competition where he is miles better than the next contender.. of course i could try if a comp comes about but not sure thered be fun for him with little or no competition.

I guess that makes sense, why did those guys leave? just got bored of the site? or what whenever you check out old threads they seemed to dominate them at least yung ital?

i think yung ital was first to reach the 1000 post mark on the entire forum. syed went over and joined NAS but was never really very active here or there. Owen4ever was always a member of soccergrip as well as EF and just went there. and yung ital left here then got banned from Soccergrip. i think they all just got bored of the site, yeah.

Do you think it'd be possible to get a hold of some of the old members syed, owen4ever, *yung ital* etc, if expert did another comp

There's an expression from where I come from "you can't start a new brothel with old whores" or something like that. Even if we tried to revive the freestyle section this wouldn't be the right way to go about it.

Yeah, you're right Sputnik, everybody has their own thing going on now. Anyways, I think we have a nice little community as it is.

I think that there should be more competitions on here. Something that will make the users more active on here and at the same time more active outside practicing,

Like the freestyle competition is a good idea.

I have a camera so I would probably participate.

Hey Sputnik, do you know what happened to Kamal Sekri? He used to be a very good freestyler, with great style, and now he just...dissapeared. I searched the entire youtube for his videos and couldn't find a thing except his old videos! :?
And yeah, also true with the case of John Clark, a former member of the 10 with Palle. What happened to all of them?

No I just wanna see what happened to him. It's a shame that he didn't carry on doing it. He has a really smooth style that resembles Touzani.

So true. What did happen anyway?

lol freestyler jordan, idve thought youdve known :P you hung out on the fdu forums i thought?

well anyway, noone really knows no even MaccaAuz. lol. they just 'dissapeared'. not individually, but after they merged with funk seoul brothers and then the forum went down, it just kinda stopped. individially theres still the odd vid from colin or macca or bevs etc. just subscribe to their youtube accounts i guess.

Yeah Macca Joe Davies and Kane made a video on lowerbody freestyle its the best aussie freestyle video ever made so far in my opinion, look on maccas channel.

Yeah sputnik I used to be on FDU forums but I never got any warning when they split up and the server went down lol it was like one day i was just using it normally and the next day the website comes up under some bloody spam website
