Everybody was talking about this project. Now it was time for it. Arto Saari( Flip Skateboards) got the permission to start an unique project in a cooperation with Helsinki Airport. At first he choose a group of skaters to skate the spots inside the Helsinki Airport. At the end it was a mixture of skaters from Japan, Russia, Denmark , Finland and three Flip Skateboards riders like Matt Berger( Flip Skateboards), Curren Caples (Flip Skateboards, Independent Trucks, Bones Bearings, Ricta Wheels) and Louie Lopez( Independent Trucks, Ricta Wheels, Mob Grip, Bones Bearings). The result was an unique clip with an amount of impressive tricks inside the airport. As you can see, a cooperation between skaters and a permissive airport can always bring a great result.
Louie Lopez (Flip Skateboards, Bones Bearings, Independent Truck, Ricta Wheels, Mob Grip) recently was in Switzerland with the Flip Team just a few weeks ago. Besides being a very nice guy, he’s obviously ripping like a devil. Check out the raw footage of his part from the Flip”3″ Video and get the amazed by how hard some tricks look without music.
Here we go. Flip Skateboards decided to make a short video to introduce their great riders Alec Majerus( Flip Skateboards), Louie Lopez( Flip Skateboards, Independent Trucks, Ricta Wheels, Mob Grip, Bones Bearings) and Curren Caples( Flip Skateboards, Independent Trucks, Ricta Wheels, Mob Grip). All three are great skater and everybody of them has a different style. Those guys are definitely the future of skateboarding.
