Skaters like Tiago Lemos do not grow on trees. He does harder tricks, pops higher and slides longer than everyone else. No wonder why DC gave him his own signature colorway of the DC Plaza TC S shoe. He’s just too good.
Originally from the suburbs of Sao Paulo, Brazil, Tiago Lemos is one of the best skaters in the world right now. If not the best. Congratulations to DC for finding such an exceptionnal rider.
With his style, his pop, his tricks selection and his ability to skate switchstance like he was fully ambidextrous, Tiago Lemos has quickly earned a place among the best in the skate industry. Now a professional skateboarder, he continues to produce an incredible amount of content every year. Extreme quality stuff only.
He wasn’t awarded with a signature colorway of the new DC Plaza TC S for nothing. With a series of equally crazy video parts, Lemos showed the world what he was capable of. And he did it in no time.
A VIDEO PART STORY
Originally from Campinas, Brazil, Tiago Lemos humbly started to skate around his neighborhood, in the outskirts of Sao Paulo. With his natural talent on the board and his progression steadily improving, he quickly got noticed by the Sao Paulo locals, who took him under their wings and gave him motivation to pursue the killing spree he was on.
To learn more about the Tiago Lemos story, watch the video below.
Shortly after, around 2012-2013, Tiago made his first appearances in the American skate scene with a few pictures in magazines and clips in skate videos, but it's his out of this world footage from Ty Evans masterpiece, We Are Blood, that introduced him to the success he deserved.
After entering the world of American skateboarding, Lemos attacked with another incredible video, this time for DC, his now official shoe sponsor. Featuring skaters from Brazil and Portugal, Da Rua / De la Calle showed the world what Tiago Lemos was really capable of.
After filming crazy video parts, winning competitions, seeing his name on a Boulevard Board and on a colorway of the DC Plaza shoe, Tiago is well established in the industry. In 2016, he added one more video part to his impressive list: Press Play, for Thrasher Magazine.
These video parts remind us that Tiago Lemos is definitely one of the best, if not THE best. And to answer the needs of a skateboarder that legendary, you need an extraordinary shoe. Judging by the way Tiago shreds, the Plaza TC S does the job really well.
