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.
For all the ones who missed David Loy (Birdhouse Skateboards, Bones Bearings, Ricta Wheels, Mob Grip) ripping in Switzerland with the Bones Bearings Team a couple of days ago. This kid is not just a amazing all-round skateboarder, he’s also a party beast and a super nice guy.

Simon Stricker (Flip, Bones Wheels, Bones Bearings, Silver Trucks, Mob Grip, Shorty’s Hardware) is a very productive fella and he just releases another leftover part. I guess not many people would consider these tricks as leftovers. If I would have been filming all these tricks, the clip would have been called “after dark bangers” 🙂
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).

Louie Lopez(Flip Skateboards, Independent Trucks, Ricta Wheels, Bones Bearings , Mob Griptate) is member of the Flip Skateboards team since some years.

After a long time on Globe he became member of the Converse Skate Team. Here is the welcome clip for his new sponsor.
Billy Marks(Toy Machine Skateboards, Pig Wheels, Mob Grip) was already showing us his high technical level in the last X-Games Real Street part. Now it`s the turn of his grip sponsor Mob Griptape. Billy Marks is telling us why he likes Mob Grip most and showing his big bag of tricks everywhere on this plaza. It doesn`t matter , stair set, flat rail or flat curb.
