eres flipado = you are crazy, flipped out, ridiculous
el sitio puedes flipado = that place will make you flip

Flipar can mean crazy or crazy about in English, depending on context. Some Spanish speakers hate saying the letter d.

Hi, I think that this question deserves more comments. smile

Lorenzo is in the good way, however, note that there is a big difference in accordance with the use of this word. "Estar flipao" is not the same that "ser (un) flipao".

Well pointed by Lorenzo, flipao is the incorrect lazy form of flipado.

Tío, eres un flipao = Mate, you are crazy, flipped out, ridiculous (by Lorenzo).

Tío, estoy flipando = Mate, I'm very susprised, this is unbelievable, amazing

El sitio puedes fliparlo = You'll love the place

Tío, el sitio... pues (estoy) flipao = I'm very impressed for the place.
