Watch Brazilian soil get rinsed by the incredible technical ability that only Luan Oliveira brings to the scene. The Flip pro smashes this and the filming coming from Fernando Granja and Ewan Bowman with Public Enemy putting the cherry on the cake.

Here’s a statement nobody was expecting. Geoff Rowley announced last night on his social networks that he has quit Flip as a team rider:

“I am proud to have been riding for Flip Skateboards for over 20 years, enjoying many years of success and good times. But, as a rider the time has come for me to part ways with the brand. I have nothing but love for the team, past and present, and wish all continued success for Flip. Exciting new opportunities will allow me to be utilized to my fullest potential, and I’ll be divulging more in the coming months on the positive change for the future.”

Geoff is still an owner of Flip but will no longer have a board as a team rider. We wish him and all at Flip our very best.
