Even at age 11, it was apparent that Louie Lopez had been blessed with an extraordinary flow and natural skateboarding ability. Now 18 and with seven years of am contests and videos under his belt, Louie is coming into his own, with perfect timing as skating has changed direction, seeking out a new breed of all terrain rippers. His smooth and masterful board control will take Louie to levels that are difficult to currently imagine. The sky is definitely the limit for Louie, as we look forward to years of his amazing talent. The Flip legacy continues and Louie Lopez is now pro.
Skateboarding seems to have come full circle and with it Curren Caples has risen through the amateur ranks with a unique combination of power and style. Appearing to have roots both from the Dogtown era as well as from skateboarding’s leading edge of today, Curren is a true individual who cannot easily be categorized. His surf influence is obvious, gracing him with an ability to skate all terrains and find speed lines to which mere mortals simply don’t have access. Congratulations Curren on turning pro for Flip.
