This year’s Skate & Create will be hitting you live in the mag and on twskate.com January 7. To get you in the spirit, we’re hosting a week of content with Louie Barletta, one of last year’s main conceptors and seasoned vets. Louie covers all the bases from painting to whittling wood to inventing tricks to stand out as one of the most creative and entertaining dudes to ever ride a board. Here’s his setup. Keep it fun. And remember kids, suicide bolts.
