Louie Lopez and Tiago Lemos keep it pumping for 2021

Saturday, March 27th, 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!

Louie Lopez and Tiago Lemos

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.

Tiago, Suciu or Milton: Who’s your 2019 Thrasher Mag SOTY?

Tiago, Suciu or Milton: Who’s your 2019 Thrasher Mag SOTY?

 

Tiago, Suciu or Milton: Who's your 2019 Thrasher Mag SOTY?

It’s undeniable that in the world of skateboarding there is no higher accolade than the much coveted Thrasher Magazine SOTY trophy. Imbued with the literal blood of the much missed dude-with-the-glasses himself, since 1990 Thrasher have flexed their benign dictatorship and awarded one skateboarder above all others the title of SOTY in accordance with a recognition of their contributions to skateboarding during the 12 preceding months. Neither Jake Phelps nor Thrasher Magazine itself have ever made any secret of the fact that this is their award and that ultimately the winner is decided by them, regardless of what everyone else thinks. Equally, they’ve also always made it abundantly clear that one aspect of being in the running for SOTY is what each winner has done ‘for the mag’. Put another way, you could be hippy jumping over moving cars but if you’re not doing it for Thrasher then you’ve got no chance.

With the above in mind, hopefully you’ll forgive us for picking the three most worthy candidates from this year’s slightly confusing SOTY pick just to narrow the field down for you. I mean, democracy is all well and good in principle but there’s nothing like a focused choice…

 

 

 

 

First up, we have the man with hand grenades in his skate shoes (New Balance Numeric skate shoes as of last month to be precise) the one and only Tiago Lemos.
Initially dropped as a stand-alone single part on Thrasher for 24 hours, and then re-released as the curtains of Primitive Skateboarding‘s full-length Encore piece a few days later – Tiago brings the heat as always with 5 minutes of straight up skateboarding annihilation. You know a part is good when it follows a switch backside heelflip down Wallenberg and still manages to blow everything out of the water.
Put simply, this dude has the most explosive and mind bending POP in the history of skateboarding.
If you dig ledges, switch front feebles to switch heel out down handrails and the most legit switch mongo ever seen, then you need to vote for Tiago.
Extra points for all the nerds too by including a trick at the legendary Sadlands spot.

 

 

Up next is the twinkle-toed, high brow ledge poetry of Mr Mark Suciu – we’ve waxed lyrical about his Verso section previously so if you want more comment – check out this blog post.
If you’re more of a white wine and French poetry kind of skater then Mark’s probably your guy.
Here’s a reminder…

 

 

 

 

Last, but by no means least, if you prefer your skateboarding to err on the side of outright insanity and near-death-experiences then you have absolutely no option but to cast your vote for Creature Skateboards‘ own Argentine maniac Milton Martinez. If his “¡DEMOLICIÓN!”section doesn’t scare the shit out of you, then you need to lay off the Xanax. Pure, unbridled, skate and destroy ethos in human form.
An entire video section of enders without a hint of hyperbole. Fucking nutter!

Rough Cut: Tiago Lemos’ “Press Play” Part

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

 

Tiago  Lemos’ Press Play part was only released a couple of weeks ago. Arguably it is one of the best parts to be put out this year and puts Tiago into the Thrasher skater of the year debate. Thrasher have released the Rough Cut of his footage which further underlines his skill. This lets you see that he landed some of the more difficult tricks in only a few tries. Not only that, he went back for seconds for that switch bigspin back tail across the Jkwon gap. I think most people would have been happy with the first make but the DC representative wanted to it that little bit more perfect. Click play to see some extremely gnarly skateboarding.
