A SOTY without a trophy that is what we feel Tiago is. And that what his skating has been like for a while now too. Jaw-dropping, hard popping… we could go on with some whack rhymes but you get the message, right? Press play.
In just one year this film was being produced and the first time we heard about the name “Encore” was only a few weeks ago. Good marketing, a lot of effort and the right timing combined with world-class skateboarding.
Encore features Paul Rodriguez, Tiago Lemos, Miles Silvas, JB Gillet, Bastien Salabanzi, Spencer Hamilton, Robert Neal, Marek Zaprazny, Devine Calloway, Carlos Ribeiro, Brian Peacock, Wade Desarmo, Franky Villani, Patrick Zentgraf, David Jakinda & more.
In our opinion, this is their best compilation yet!
The tested method of putting people on a plane or a train and bringing them to the people. Primitive shows us that the crowds want to just see you skate.
Watching this video you can’t help but get the feeling that the (once) big DC shoes are entering limbo. About two years ago they decided to scrap a plethora of big-name riders and started to focus more on a nostalgia led movement based on the east coast.
Some people from the Philly based Sabotage crew and NYC based John Shanahan got pushed to the forefront, while at the same time, Josh Kalis got elevated to ICON status. The rekindled interest in his older shoe designs is an authentic movement but let us not forget that DC also sponsor: Thaynan Costa, Evan Smith, Tristan Funkhouser and to some extent Wes and Tiago who somehow represent a bridge between the old and the “new” identity of the brand.
Still, DC seems to be somewhat torn between the multiple lanes it tries to occupy leading with “Street Sweeper” to a somewhat eclectic video that somehow manages to balance all these different facets of the “game”. But the question remains what is next and how will they keep reinventing themselves to stay relevant.
Maybe you “the viewer” can deduct an early answer from this video. Enjoy!
DC Shoe’s Choppy D once again shows that their team is stacked and arguably has one of the best line-ups in skateboarding at the moment.
Feat.: Evan Smith, Jaakko Ojanen, Madars Apse, Matt Miller, Thaynan Costa, Tiago Lemos, Wes Kremer & many more.
We always love when skaters have parts that are edited to music that comes from their country, it makes sense that Tiago is skating to a Kamau song. furthermore, if this is what is blasting through Mr. Lemos’ earplugs most of the time it certainly would explain a part of why his skating is so pumped up.
If you are still thirsty for more Brazilian skateboarding after watching Carlos Ribeiro‘s part today, there is plenty more of it! Tiago Lemos celebrates his new colorway on DC Shoes with this one.
Featuring Tiago Lemos, Carlos Iqui, Alex Carolino, JP Dantas and Bruno Aguero.
At the beginning of 2017 Crupiê Wheels signed a number of well-known personalities to expand their international team and also quickly took the opportunity to show everybody what they got.
Featuring Carlos Ribeiro, Tiago Lemos, Carlos Iqui, Danny Cerezini, Joey Brezinski, Javier Sarmiento, Rodrigo Petersen, Daniel Espinoza and Shmatty Chaffin.
Tiago’s skating is above and beyond at times even when you follow him on a daily basis he somehow manages to shock us. We say all that to say this, the guy who made this part finally found a song that shocks as much as Tiago’s skating. Enjoy the madness.

How the hell do you become so good and is it okay to drink the tap water in brazil? There has got to be a reason.. rice and beans, maybe? Tiago Lemos is someone who you could call “The Best”.
BLVD Skateboards ist die Company von Rob Gonzales und Danny Montoya, von der man allerdings in jüngster Vergangenheit eher wenig gehört hat. Umso schöner ist es dafür, wenn eine “Public Notice” in Form eines Promovideos herauskommt, das nicht nur zeigt, dass Montoya noch immer einen Götter-Style besitzt, sondern auch Nachwuchsfahrer wie Tiago Lemos hervorbringt. In gewohnt funkiger Atmosphäre kommt der Clip dynamisch daher und beinahe hätten wir die “Da bekommt man richtig Bock zu skaten” – Floskel herausgekramt. Funktioniert aber auch ohne.
