The Berrics has launched a new series called “PUSH” which goes back to the hometowns of today’s best skaters to learn out what drew them to skateboarding and tells the story of the people and experiences that got them to where they are today.
The first episode heads to Virgina Beach, VA with Trevor Colden and his friends. In the coming days, “PUSH” will feature stories from Ishod Wair, Leticia Bufoni, Luan Oliveira, Josh Matthews, Ben Raybourn, and Aaron Homoki. Look for a new episode Cody Cepeda this Thursday.
Tampa Pro Finals just wrapped up at the Skatepark of Tampa where it was truly a proud day for Brazil skateboarding, its nation of skaters, and its gifted professionals. As per several predictions, Luan Oliveira nailed a flawless and technical line of mastery in his third run that kept going well past the buzzer to take home the victory.
What’s more, fellow Brazilian shredders Kelvin Hoeffler and Felipe Gustavo definitively earned their places onto Street League’s 2014 World Tour with their sick runs in the finals as well. Drop by both the Skatepark of Tampa and Street League websites for more info and recaps on today’s action. Congrats Luan, Kelvin and Felipe!
