Louie Lopez

Age: 22
Hometown: Hawthorne, California
Setup: 8.25” Flip, Independent 149s, 52mm Spitfire Conical, Hard Luck Bearings, Mob Grip, Hardies Hardware, Converse One Star

Louie Lopez’s breakout part in Flip’s 2009 video, Extremely Sorry, was filmed in his early teens. In the ensuing eight years Louie accomplished a lot, including getting his inevitable pro board four years ago and winning Tampa Pro this year. In March, Spitfire released his highly flammable latest part.

Essentially the face of CONS, Louie has also hooked up with a diverse range of sponsors, too numerous to mention. Recent additions Beats by Dre and New Era prove that Louie’s cachet extends beyond the core skateboarder demo. But we saw him first.
