The Globe footwear team has picked up an innovative skateboarder on par with their pioneering pro -- legend Rodney Mullen. The El Segundo, Calif. based footwear company has added Enjoi pro Louie Barletta to their team.
Hailing from San Jose, Barletta joins Mark Appleyard, Chris Haslam, David Gonzales, Jake Duncombe, Luan Oliveira, Louie Lopez, Ryan Decenzo and Mullen on the Globe skate team.
Barletta's unique, light-hearted approach to skating and his bag of tricks bring talent and guaranteed good times to the roster. Having skated for both Osiris and Duffs, Barletta seems to be in the right place, judging by the amazing jump ramp video with fellow Globe teammate Chris Haslam to welcome Barletta onto the team.
One can only hope that the video is the precursor for a tour featuring the beard, the haircut and the jump ramp.
In related Barletta news, he recently appeared on an episode of The Ride Channel's "The Weekend Buzz" with enjoi teammate Jerry Hsu, and has confirmed that a new enjoi video is currently in production.
