60+ pros gathered in Skate Park of Tampa’s humid sweat box to charge the street course for another year of Tampa Pro 2015. The weekend was filled with tons of damn-good shredding, but the prominent 60 second run clung to Luan Olivera. His extended superhuman run got him $20 grand in his pocket and a straight shot to the 2015 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championships on October 4th in Chicago. Coming in at a close second place was Nyjah Huston, followed by Kelvin Hoefler.
Flip Skateboards is classic. Having produced some of the most legendary videos and riders of the modern era, it’s no surprise that their latest crop of young bucks is absolutely nuts. The Flip Unmatched series includes models from established pros Luan Oliveira and David Gonzales, plus boards for their most recent additions to the professional ranks: Louie Lopez, Curren Caples and Alec Majerus. These dudes are the next generation of gnar, so I suggest keeping an eye on ’em if you weren’t already. As for the boards, Flip produces some of the best wood and shapes in the game. So when you pick one up not only are you supporting a rad brand with an awesome team, you’re also getting a top-quality product. Now thats a win-win situation!
