  1. Felipe Oliveira "WORLDXIT PART 3" / PREMIERE

    As promised, today on LIVE, Felipe Oliveira exposes his message via WorldXit the audiovisual way, with this self-edited compilation of his own footage as gathered throughout the years by valiant Converse Brazil videographer, Guilherme Guimarães. And the product speaks for itself; although, of course, we felt like tracking Gui down for the extra bit of commentary, below, regardless. And for more from Felipe, one can still watch his former video appearances here or go and (re-)read his interview about this very project that is "WORLDXIT PART 3" - but not just that - here!

    "Filming with Felipe is always a pleasure; it never made me feel like it was a “job”. Since we started working together in 2016, we've created this type of connection that came in naturally. It’s like a bond between a filmer and a skater - something that just happens and you can't force it. What you see in this part is just the beginning of a series of hard work we're dropping throughout this year. I’m sure his name will be heard globally from now on. And he deserves it. Thank you - I love you, Felipe!" - Guilherme Guimarães

  2. Felipe Oliveira / INTERVIEW

    The Felipe Oliveira case is one of the many LIVE has been closely watching for quite the years now; a post-modern style dictated by a persistently free spirit, dozens of more or less local appearances throughout the years, a constantly boiling Instagram feed and, from now on, the head of a project of his own: WorldXit, really the direct extension of his creativity and approach to daily life via original textile-based productions, but not just that. Indeed, right now, it is audiovisual matter Felipe is just about to drop, under the form of a new self-edited "web part" (as they say): "WORLDXIT PART 3", the receptacle of footage contributed by Converse Brazil camera maestro Guilherme Guimarães then reinterpreted by the skater himself, on LIVE as soon as tomorrow. To keep you waiting, in addition to reposting this other recent clip of Felipe, here are his answers to our questions that obviously raised themselves by themselves and he didn't sleep on as one more opportunity to express himself with enthusiasm - if not a certain urgency.

  3. Felipe Alert!

    Heading out to Latin America, now, with a fine selection of the Cons heads, and they sure as hell tackle it all in style, as those guys have gotten us used to! Let's salute our personal favorite Felipe Oliveira, that plays home, here, but mostly plays to his very own tune, as he always does…
  4. LDSxZSU / PREMIERE

    We already knew, now we are sure: the Brazilian scene has nothing to envy to others. The style is unique, and the creativity is here, especially if you speak about the Salvador da Bahia scene. No piece of sidewalk is spared and anything can be turned into a spot. In brief, we may have to believe that Felipe Oliveira and the rest of the crew are able to do anything, from the impressive pop to the technical grind passing a doubtful pole-Jam. All that captured by the camera of Alan dos Anjos under the beautiful Brazilian sun. What more can we ask for? Apaprt from an actually cool clothing line designed by the Lukdetxit heads for the local skateshop!?

  5. LADOB

    Fernando Gomes operates from Salvador in Bahia, Brazil, where amongst other personal enterprises he keeps busy documenting the local skateboarding talent, producing both moving and still images then invested in project SSAlitre, the eventual centralization, orchestration and crystalization of that very effort. So, that's the exact place "LADOB" falls into, as well as next to "LADO A" from the yesteryear in the entity's legacy (as its YouTube attests, here); this new audiovisual offering consists in fourteen minutes of H.D. skateboarding courtesy of many a LIVE regulars such as Cotinz or Felipe Oliveira (whom we will be giving you more news from real soon), but also in the usual mixed cascade of raw styles and colorful, improbable spots (including a few bump-to-bars Jimmy Lannon would unquestionably have fallen for), and the photo gallery above, by Fernando.

  6. Taking the L?

    By now you are well aware of the Felipe Oliveira case, and you can already guess that he used a trip to NYC to reach new levels of coolness, even putting himself in danger in the process! But this edit also gives us a chance to get more acquainted with that Kaue guy that might have a more orthodox approach, but sill drips of relaxed technique.

  7. Kmugerē

    Today, LIVE is featuring even more of Felipe Oliveira (after his recent video and interview one can still check out here), as Converse just granted him a pro colorway, as the skate shoe world calls it. To celebrate, once again, we're talking a video offering by Guilherme Guimarães who managed to get three minutes of footage out of only seven days spent filming around Salvador da Bahia, and got Felipe involved as far as in the creation of the soundtrack, along with genius Fernando Denti and Pivaratu. The project appears to be of the collaborative sort also on the skate front since, amongst all of Felipe's mindbenders, can also be remarked the shine of intertwined appearances by Luis MoschioniAlison Rosendo and Ruan Robert.

  8. Ciao

    Little information has been surfacing about "Ciao" besides it being a new, mastered H.D. 16:9 full-length filmed entirely in N.Y.C. by Ricardo Napoli, already the author of the 2017 "Making It Happen" which followed a similar concept. Ricardo appears to be very much into documenting not just the established locals, but also the prowess of 'skate tourists' visiting from worldwide, and developing their take on interpreting the Big Apple. His Brazilian connections run deep as in addition to Kaue Cossa having a full partFelipe Oliveira repeatedly appears, not too far from a more American, but just as exotic Connor Kammerer who comes through with over a minute of opening clips. Even certain French speaking heads such as Bastien Regeste or Quentin De Briey earned their clips! But a major link Ricardo especially seems fond of cultivating is his bond to Japan, the scene of which gets the heaviest overall representation here, with full parts for Kento Yoshioka and Ryo Motohashi.

  9. Felipe alert!

    Our coverage of Brazilian skateboarding would have put the idea in your head that we dig it spicy and diverse… And be reassured, it hasn't changed! But, let's just be honest, here, we do have our favorite, and it is Felipe Oliveira! This new edit from Cons Brazil should have more than a few of you siding with us on this one. It will also confirm how skateboarding can be practiced in many beautiful ways, wether we talk Kauê Cossa or Victor Süssekind… The ill shit, we tell ya!

  10. Big red heart Emoji

    You might not be aware of it, but your favorite skateboarder is named Felipe Oliveira… At least, it should be the case! Why, you ask? Well, it all lies here: skills, off course, spontaneity, power, a borderline supernatural type of class, and the (always rare) ability to see things (and therefore spots) differently. This is why I will actually sign this platonic love letter/post.
