Enrique Lorenzo has seemingly been around forever. The Spaniard was part of the World Industries crew back in the nineties and appeared in the company’s Trilogy video collaboration with Blind and 101 in 1996. He also featured in a number of films for the 411 video magazine as well as touring London with Axion.
Since 2000, he has picked up sponsorship deals with Expedition One, Tensor Trucks, FKD Bearings, Bones Bearings, Mob Grip, Autobahn Wheels and Vivo Headwear. Among the highlights of his video appearances for Expedition were the 2009 tour video Hello, Hello, Hello, filmed in Shenzhen and Hong Kong, and the later Madness and Bits and Pieces promos that showed he had lost none of his skills.
Enrique was born and brought up in Barcelona, and remains based there. He was one of a select group of skaters to put the city on the map as a skating mecca, and, even into 2013, he was releasing sick new clips filmed in the city. He is also building his own Barcelona-based skateboard brand called Louw, and appeared in a promo for the company in 2013, also featuring Octavio Barrera, Pol Catena and Felipe Bartolome.
However, he is known not only in his home city but also around the world for pushing the boundaries of switch and technical skating during trips to the USA, where he has spent much of his career. This has led to him achieving worldwide fame as a progressive pro skater and often being described as a ‘technical legend’.
