Louie Lopez took LA by storm this weekend competing in both street and streetstyle competitions at Dew Tour this weekend. Held at the Ace Hotel, Dew Tour focused solely on skateboarding for this stop and Louie obliged the crowd with consistent and technical skating. Getting second place in street and fourth in streetstyle, Louie had a great showing and proved just how good of an all around skater he is.
Next stop is Street League in Newark, where Louie is filling in as first alternate for Bastien Salabanzi.
Louie Lopez was on fire in Copenhagen last week and took home 2nd place in the “Triangle” during the Copenhagen Pro. One of skateboarding’s most unique and fun contests, the boys at The Boardr put on a week of events that culminate in one street contest at the Triangle. Many called this some of the best skating they have ever seen Louie do in a contest.
Stoked for Louie and glad all the boys, including Arto and Nordberg, had a blast.
As the next qualifier with the highest point score in the Street League Pro Open, Louie Lopez has been bumped up to skate in the L.A. stop of the series on 7/11. With the injury of Sean Malto, Louie has been called up to fill his spot. With a tight course with low rails and fun tranny, Louie should do really well at the event being held at USC’s Galen Center and airing on Fox Sports 1.
Best of luck Louie!
An amazing weekend of skate and BMX action went down in Chicago this weekend at Grant Park skatepark with RPRT clients making multiple podium visits. In skate, Louie Lopez barely missed the top spot with a flawless run in skate streetstyle garnering him a second place finish. In skate best session, Louie continued with incredible skating in an all out battle to get the third place trophy. In BMX, Chad Kerley dominated all three sections in BMX street best session for the win. In BMX streetstyle, Chad just missed the podium by quarter of a point, getting him 4th. Jeremiah Smith also had an awesome last run and landed in 7th.
Great times were had. Next stop for Dew Tour will be in Los Angeles and will only feature skate.
