Habitat Welcomes Flo Mirtain

Posted by Route One on 7th February 2018

When legendary Lyon based board company Cliché bit the dust at the back end of 2016, not only did the brand's passing create an outpouring of grief but it also left some seriously talented rippers without a major hook up for the first time in their careers. 

Lucas soon found a home with his boys at Palace, Brophy popped on over to the illustrious Girl camp and Kyron Davies joined up with Koston and Guy at the newly formed Numbers. Flo Mirtain however, despite maintaining his profile with an incredible part in New Balance's Tricolor, seemed to float in board sponsorship limbo and we have to admit we were worried the gig might actually have been up for Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes native. 

Thankfully, as this brand new 'Welcome to Habitat' clip illustrates, our fears were unfounded and one of the most technically gifted skaters on the planet is receiving free wood once again. Filmed predominantly around his home region, with a smattering of Catalunya thrown in for good measure, Flo digs deep into that crazily varied trick bag of his and pulls out some genuine shockers for your viewing pleasure. 

Congrats on the Habitat hook up Flo, skating the way you do it's a wonder it took this long!
