This past weekend’s skateboarding events at the Dew Tour in Chicago have wrapped up where the Flip Skateboards team had very impressive and commanding afternoons against the invited competition. Saturday’s sweep by Flip’s rookie pros took to the Streetstyle podium with Curren Caples on top followed by his cohort Louie Lopez and teammate Alec Majerus. On Sunday, Brazilian dark horse Kelvin Heofler stacked up points in the Street Best Session above all the rest and earned $25K for his efforts. He was followed by Alec Majerus in second and Louie Lopez in third.
