Q&A: ClipEyz rider Lorenzo Palumbo

We discovered Lorenzo through our own KrakApp a while back and were amazed by his talents and style despite his really young age. So last year when we asked ClipEyz about chatting to one of their riders, it was a no-brainer for us: let’s talk to Lorenzo. This great kid isn’t only a good skater, he’s a nice dude and definitely forms a cool team with his father Carlo. You’ll see more of him in the near future for sure. -k

Hey Lorenzo, how old are you? where are you from?
I’m 13 years old and I’m from Hyeres-les-Palmiers in France.

When did you start skating?
I started when I was 8 years old so I’ve been skating for almost four and a half years now.

How did you start?
Thanks to my brother and one of his friends. I haven’t stopped since.

Your favorite trick?
Pressure flip, treflip and b/s flip.

Your favorite skater?
Cody McEntire. I love his style and his switch treflip.

Your favorite skate spot?
Probably like a lot among us I love skating Venice Beach and Macba.

What do you enjoy the most in skateboarding?
I’m in love with the gaps. It’s about the feeling I have when I’m in the air and the moment you land your trick is such a great sensation.

What do you think about the KrakBox?
I think it’s a great idea. It allows us to discover new brands.

Which item did you like the most so far?
The bearings.

Yep that happened in Hyeres, I was skating for 6 months and I won in the ‘under 13’ category.

What do you like about the contests?
I enjoy meeting with my homies there. I travel quite often with my father thanks to these contests and for the filming too and we often bring some friends along.

What are your plans for the end of this year? and 2017?
I’m cooking up a street part with some footage from Barcelona, Lyon and probably other places all around Europe.
