Timeless: Enrique Lorenzo.

Arthur Derrien Arthur Derrien

Many consider Trilogy to be one most influential videos of it’s decade. The Menace montage, Kareem’s stiff legged push and Lavar’s lines probably all played a major part in this, but its also because of how well it aged. People still love that type of skating, look at Palace’s L.A edit!  Yet strangely most of the guys from this video either aren’t really about anymore (what happened to Maurice Key?), or don’t skate the same way at all ( Jason Dill’s Alien part is slightly different to his Trilogy one). Luckily, some people from the those Trilogy days managed to stay true to the skateboarding we’ve grown to love and Enrique Lorenzo is definitely one of them. He’s one of the few you can count on for sticking to the same old shit: long smooth lines with a good trick selection. He’s put out tons of parts over the years, and I don’t really see the point of posting the one I think is his all time “best”, because they are all so sick that it’s just too subjective. But I will post my favorite of less obvious ones: I always tend to forget about that old Logic part he had, it was mind-blowing. I can’t think of anybody else who could do a 3 trick line that includes a switch flip front crook pop out, let alone without pushing.

Here’s a little bonus treat, he had a minute of footage in Rodney vs Daewon 2. He was killing it during those Deca days, I wish that company was still around…
