We’ve watched Louie Lopez grow up over the years, from a little long haired tranny ripper to young tall street slayer who has style for miles. Fast forward to last weekend and we are very proud to call him 2017’s Skatepark of Tampa, Tampa Pro CHAMPION! Once we saw him roll away from that fakie 360 flip at the end of his finals run we knew it was over. Louie was ripping all weekend, popping frontside 180’s out of those back smiths with so much style and those alley-oop frontside flips over the hip were on lock! Watch his run below and click the images to see more photos from The Skateboard Mag and Transworld Skateboarding. Congrats Lou, the Volcom family is so proud of you!
