    A skateboard and some ingenuity carried Luan Oliveira a long way. The setting has changed – from the streets of Porto Alegre, Brazil to the bright lights, big paydays and raucous crowds of Street League – but the passion for having his feet on a skateboard are very much the same.

That next chapter begins this week with sixth edition of the ever new-and-improved Dumont Cup at Sunday River Resort in Maine. A whole new course, a decorated list of pros and then … who knows. Dumont has ideas, lots of them, but he’s not yet ready to share them in their entirety. Just know, there’s still a lot to come from the 27-year-old. We talked Dumont days before the Dumont Cup kicked off.
