He’s Brazilian, he’s pro for FLIP, and he kills it on the daily with ridiculous board control and always a big smile on his face. This is Luan Oliveira we’re talking about.
CCS caught with with Luan and blasted him with a series of well-timed What’s. Here’s what happened.
What’s the best Brazilian dish? Rice, Beans, Beef, Potato And Mandioca.
What trick gives you the most trouble? Well, I think Nollie Kickflip Backtail, Bigspin Flip out. I can’t do the Bigspin Flip out of that trick.
What’s the tattoo on your arm say? Luana.
What’s filming with Ewan Bowman like? It’s always fun. I like to film with him because he thinks of the same trick I was thinking. Or when I say I wanna do this he’s like, “OK THATS TIGHT.” That’s better for me ‘cause sometimes you wanna film a trick but the filmer doesn’t.
What would you do with 10 extra G’s? Probably give [it] to my father.
What pro is killing it? Torey Pudwill, he’s gnarly!
What was the secret to taking Tampa Am twice in a row? Be happy, never think you’re gonna win and smile all the time!
What’s changed since turning pro? People respect me more than before.
What happens when we die? I have no idea, man.
What’s the secret to a proper hardflip? Just like a FS Flip but don’t turn your body. When you catch it, put your body forward. I think it’s pretty much like this.
