Lewis Marnell.

Nothing but the truth.

Lewis was from Melbourne, Australia. He also lived in Sweden, but returned to Oz to focus on skateboarding. He was sponsored by Almost and Nike. Lewis turned pro for Almost in 2008 and was recognized by SLAM Skateboard Magazine as their Skater of the Year. Unfortunately, Lewis was diabetic and passed away from complications of the disease in January of 2013. He was 30 years old.

I watched his part in Nike's Nothing But The Truth last night. Lewis did a good variety of flip tricks caught cleanly, both regular and switch. He also had a stylish 360 flip.

The sequence is by Andrew Mapstone.
