Louie Lopez and Tiago Lemos keep it pumping for 2021

The dynamic duo of Louie Lopez and Tiago Lemos have both dropped nuggets of respective gold this week.
Two of our (and no doubt yours too) favourite non-SOTY winners just keep on producing.
First up is Brazilian power house Tiago Lemos with a short but banging commercial for Primitive skate.
Once memorably described on the venerable PWBC News as skating like ‘Enrique Lorenzo on high grade steroids’ – Tiago can do little wrong on our eyes. Yes, it was the over waist high switch backtail at MACBA that made him globally famous but there’s much more to him than that. Running mega pop on a Kareem Campbell level with a trick bag as wide as his smile – just sit back and soak up the supernatural skills.
State of that nollie crooks!

Once you’ve digested big man casually leaping over waist-high bump to bars, prepare your eyes for another onslaught. We post about Louie Lopez a lot and have done since his midget days on Flip skateboards. If ever there was proof of Flip’s talent-spotting prowess then it’s the trajectory of this Hawthorne, L.A. raised ripper. Fresh off the back of his recent full length part for Converse Cons back in December, Louie is back again with four and a half minutes of truly outstanding skating for Fucking Awesome (or do we call it ‘FA World Entertainment’ now in tacit acknowledgement that ‘Fucking Awesome’ is an embarrassing name?).
Nomenclature issues aside – baldy comes through as always with 3 minutes of amazing lines bleeding into a minute and a half long ‘hammer section’. Filmed at a variety of presumably Covid-liberated downtown spots, along with a smattering of classics: watch out for the Venice ledges banger and a brief ressurection of the OG Beryl bank to curb. Very little more needs to be said honestly – the guy’s a pisstake and, as the blipvert of his t-shirt says ‘You must remember shit’. Cryptic? Perhaps. Banging? Undeniably.
