Streets is Talkin’ – Carlos Iqui in Simplesmente Sintonia #3

Screen Shot 2015-10-02 at 12.46.59 AM

Carlos “Iqui” Henrique is one of the ILLest of the new generation of Brazilian skaters that have been making the skateboard industry sit up and take notice. You might have seen him kill it at #JKwon with that switch frontside flip over the freaking block going about Mach 10, if you haven’t, dude you’re seriously slippin’!

With a smooth style that is equal parts tech and multiple line combos, Carlos’ skating is easy on the eyes and filled with NBDs that will make you re-watch his parts with a mix of disbelief and head scratching “what the hell?” Always taking a refreshingly different approach to skating, Carlos’ part lays to rest the notion that everything that can be done has already been done.

This little known gem of a part from João Pedro Romero‘s 2011 Brazilian video Simplesmente Sintonia #3 has plenty of Carlos’ signature textbook tech and a reminder to all of us that skating fast just makes everything look so much better. And yes, that was a switch flip frontblunt. Peep the video for some of Carlos’ magic! Brasil STAND UP!! – HK

Carlos rides for Boulevard Skateboards, Thunder Trucks, Gold Wheels and DC Shoes.
