Omar Meddeb

Omar Meddeb is a Newport local who is arguably the coolest skimmer on the peninsula. He has been an inspiration to the Lopez Brothers for a long while and it has been our pleasure to get to know Omar and see what he does on a daily basis. Perpetually stoked, Omar can go out on the smallest and windiest days and still blow your mind with corked out airs and steezy turns. It's that consistency that shows how much passion he has for the sport. We look forward to seeing Omar sometime soon and wish we could see the reaction to his own mini movie! So give it up to Omar Meddeb!

Lopez Brothers scope Virgin Gorda

The Lopez Brothers took a family Thanksgiving trip to Virgin Gorda to visit Ale's godparents and hoped to score some fun skim for the couple days they were there. Although the skim wasnt good it didn stop the boys from havin' a great time and looking for new skim spots that have not been ridden yet.
