Ask any skater about Luan’s skating and they’ll tell you everything… How fast he goes. How high he pops. How many tricks he’s got. How good his style is. Ask them about Luan Oliveira though—not the skater, but the person—and see what response you get. Who is he, where’s he come from, what’s his background? What exactly PUSHES Luan? That’s another story entirely, and one that nobody really knows. For the first time ever, we went down to Porto Alegre with Luan and his best friends to see who Luan really is and what life in Brazil was really like for him growing up. So next time you wonder how Luan got so good, you’ll at least know part 1 of the answer. VAI LUAN!
