A double dose of Louie Lopez courtesy of Converse Cons & FA

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020

A right old treat here with a double dose of Louie Lopez, dropping virtually simultaneously from Converse Cons and FA. Is there a better human representation of a skateboarding come-up based on sheer talent and humility than that of LA’s very own Mr Lopez?
Louie’s skateboarding journey has been documented and under the microscope from the tender age of 13. For many, this attention has proved to be a destructive force, releasing the twin demons of underage insanity and regrettable kiddy-style documentation – for a variety of reasons however, Louie Lopez has managed to swerve this wunderkind curse and mature into one of the most highly rated skaters on the planet.

Louie’s earliest exposure was as the long-haired and brace-wearing mini ripper announced in Globe footwear’s United by Fate (2007) and then cemented into skate lore in his banger 2009 Extremely Sorry part for former sponsors Flip Skateboards.
Despite the expected sniping of the time, aimed squarely at Flip skateboards‘ acquisition of Louie, (along with fellow murder midgets Curren Caples and David Gonzalez) Jeremy Fox, Ian Deacon and Geoff Rowley‘s eye for talent was vindicated once again with all three additions maturing into some of the gnarliest skaters on the planet a few years later.

A double dose of Louie Lopez

This first of this week’s double dose of Louie Lopez comes in the form of a three minute part (we think it’s solid enough to warrant that description) filmed in and around Louie’s native LA during the last 6 months of lockdown. Hands get sliced open by skate-stoppers, the infamous LAX banks get treated to an unfathomable backside noseblunt slide shove it, the Sister Sledge track rules and there’s little to no bullshit over-zoom filming. In short – it’s everything that you could ask for in a clip. Get it watched immediately.

If you’re not satisfied by the Converse Cons ‘Lola’ clip above never fear, as Jason Dill and AVE‘s FA World Entertainment have your back with a slightly shorter, slightly rawer but equally as cracking expose of Louie’s undeniable talents in the form of the ‘The Louie Lopez II’.

Louie Lopez’s “West End” Part For Thrasher

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Louie Lopez’s “West End” Part For Thrasher.

 

Everyone’s saying it but holy hell what a time to put out a part like this with the looming coveted Thrasher ‘Skater Of The Year’ title up for grabs. Louie Lopez was already well on target for achieving the peoples vote with a serious amount of footage throughout 2017 for sponsors Flip Skateboards, Converse Cons, Volcom etc etc… but pretty sure Ladbrookes wouldn’t give you good odds now after the below “West End” part for Thrasher Magazine.

 

We’ve been a big fan of Louie Lopez watching him grow up under the talent spotting Flip Skateboards and to see how he’s developed a faultless style along with taking skating to the next mental control level yet keeping it looking so effortlessly.

Volcom’s Hell of a Summer Video

Monday, July 17th, 2017

 

It’s hot and dry, standard procedure for an Australian summer morning, but as the Volcom team approached Sydney International airport the temperature kept rising and rising. They had hit Sydney the same time as a heat wave before heading into the wider land of Oz for spot hunting and alcohol fueled fun with The Skateboarders Journal on hand to capture the action as they went. So one thing was for certain, they were in for one hell of a trip, a trip that just so happens to have collided head on with one hell of a summer.

 

Featuring Jackson Pilz, Shane Azar, Axel Cruysberghs, Dane Burman, Reese Warren, Scotty Standley, Jesse Noonan, Nik Stipanovi and Colin Provost.

Volcom ‘Euro Stokes’ Edit

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

 

 

A couple of months previous to the infamous release of the Volcom Holy Stokes video the Volcom dudes decided to gather a crew and hit some spots in the UK and Europe to try and gather some last minute footage for the video. The van consisted of our very own Harry Lintell and then Ben Raemers, Eniz Fazliov, Alain Goikoetxea and Daan van der Linden, along with flow riders Dan West, Charlie Birch, Gav Coughlin and Victor Pellegrin. Now that’s a power crew and it’s no surprise the guys managed to produce enough footage to not only add to their parts in Holy Stokes but to also produce this fine edit that is featured above, Euro Stokes. Skateboarding seriously doesn’t get much better than this and if you’re after a short video that consists of all different styles of skateboarding then this is definitely for you. Start watching right now and get hyped on your next shred. There was also an article on the Sidewalk Magazine website that documented all the happenings from the trip so be sure to check that out too as there are some photographic gems in there, hit the link below to do so…
