Suddenly, there is a new rider on Flip. Two days after officially getting on the team, he won the recent GVR contest, beating many of skating’s current elite. Luan de Oliveira is a natural fit for the Flip Team; always smiling, always progressing and probably better than you!
Luan comes from Porto Alegre in the South of Brazil, and has been secretly skating there for the last seven years. It’s probably no coincidence that Ronaldinho comes from his home town, and Luan looks like he is going to make a similar impact on our skateboarding world.
He has only just turned 17, and you can bet your money this young gun is not going to be a “Man Am”.
