He did it again. Louie Lopez is the kind of skater who has the skill set to easily film an amazing part in a few months and this is the proof. Someone is definitely putting in work for that SOTY trophy. This is already his second part this year and Louie probably has more up his sleeve. We are keen!
It´s not a common thing to found a grip tape brand in skateboarding regarding the few already well-established brands out there but it seems that the people around Miles Griptape wanted to get their friends together and create their own thing. We love that! It is even better when it results in clips like their latest offering. A feel-good video from a recent trip to Texas, USA. Filmed and edited by Johnny Wilson.
Get your Miles Griptape HERE.
Converse CONS released a new powerful part featuring Shane Farber to promote the One Star Pro. Shane proves to us that he´s an all-terrain shredder and makes the wall-crawl-o-meter hit high here. Filmed and edited by Ryan Lee.
Another instant classic by Fucking Awesome with a lot of small details in post production of the audio and photography. It’s always a lot of fun watching those edits and finding all these little references.
Featuring an outstanding Louie Lopez, Na-Kel Smith, Anthony Van Engelen, Sage Elsesser, Diego Todd, the new guy Joe Campos, Nik Stain, Ben Kadow, John Fitzgerald, Donovon Piscopo, Sean Pablo & Andrew Allen.
A lot of Louie Lopez footage in this one.
Featuring Louie, Alec Majerus, Collin Provost, Simon Bannerot & Amos Wilton.
Illegal Civ videos often have some of the best soundtracks! Many tracks have made it into our personal playlists. For Godspeed Davonte Jolly edited Ishod Wair’s footage to “CHAMP IS HERE”. A move so obvious that you start to wonder why nobody thought of it before.
Also, is the whole concept behind HARDIES, just to make us miss the golden era of NY hip hop? MA$E, DMX, JADA man that shit makes you want to wear some baggie pants and some Timbs.
Absolutely incredible Alexis Sablone section in this one.
A film by Ben Chadourne
Jake Johnson and his entourage literally somewhere in Pennsylvania. His new shoe looks really good.
A heavy one. You think they had a deal with AirBNB?
Feat.: Alec Majerus, Louie Lopez, Milton Martinez, Jackson Pilz, Simon Bannerot, Collin Provost and Jhanca Gonzalez.
LOPEZ, friends, and teammates in Mexico covers just about all that this Converse video has to offer. Stand out to us: Alexis Sablone, she is truly a great addition to an already talented crew of people. Enjoy!
Getting your own shoe on a company is incredibly tough. Louie Lopez already reached that status but it didn’t seem like it was that hard for him, right!? The world is a strange place. Watch one of Converse’s biggest success story explain a bit about it.
It seems like that nowadays the Thrasher site has become the number one choice when it comes to a media outlet even for the bigger brands. The new Converse CONS Purple video is not released on their own YT channel but via the “Skateboard Bible”.
Watch Jake Johnson, Louie Lopez, K-rod, Bobby DeKeyzer & 100 other guys go absolutely a 100% in.
Louie Lopez having a go at taking the S.O.T.Y. title this year.
Some good footage in this new QS drop off it’s got some of our favorites people like Daniel Kim, Dustin Henry, Zered Basset, Josh Wilson, Kevin Tierney, Louie Lopez, Johnny Wilson (skating) and a very underrated Keith Denley. Enjoy!
Every year Thrasher traditionally send their current SOTY on a trip. Thus, this time Kyle Walker is the one to whom the honor is due, and so together with his not less well-known friends he traveled to always sunny Australia. You may expect high-class skateboarding.
Featuring Kyle Walker, Ishod Wair, Daan van der Linden, Zion Wright, Nakel Smith, Chima Ferguson, Louie Lopez, Jake Donnelly, Reese Salken, Peter Ramondetta, Matt Bennett and more.
No Spitfire video yet but a slew of parts have come out and this one has it’s moments. The only real problem one could have is that Louie makes it all look too easy.
“As nine of us touched down in the desert oasis known as Tel Aviv, Israël, little was known of what laid beyond the great gates of Israeli customs. Over 10 days our humus powered crew, led by local skate guide Ofer Or would bomb coastal hills from northern points of Haïfa to Tel Aviv where spots flowed as if they were from a bottle of endless Munischewitz on Shabbat.
Lest we forget about the marble plazas of Ashdod… magical. A few found their deepest, most spiritual selves in the ally’s of Jerusalem’s old city. Sprawling across the tomb of Jesus, only to be lost again the following day in the blazing banks of the Dead Sea and through the desert to Eilat.
Enjoy our 4-wheeled pilgrimage into the Holy Land!” – Lee Berman
Featuring Mike Anderson, Louie Lopez, Brian Delatorre, Al Davis, Dolan Stearns and Aaron Herrington.
We have been waiting! Not for the Hardies promo but for somebody to use that Jay Z song and to be honest, it couldn’t be used in a better context. Besides that, legendary DJ Troi “Star” Torain once said that hip hop is “A business where extremely confident black men are able to flourish and prosper.” and for us that is what Hardies brings to the table with the like of Tyshawn Jones, Nakel Smith, Kevin Bradley, Sage Elsesser and many more. Enjoy!
The Quartersnacks guys are out in Europe every summer and slowly but surely CPH seems to have become their favorite spot to chill overseas. Also for the hip hop heads out there you might enjoy the Capone-N-Noreaga reference in the title of this thing.
Featuring Max Palmer, Hjalte Hallberg, Karsten Kleppan, Louie Lopez and some other Johnny Wilson affiliates.
