From The MagPro RidersLORENZO CASATI 

LORENZO CASATI 

DATE OF BIRTH: 11/25/2005 
COUNTRY: ITALY 
LOCAL KITE SPOT: EL MEDANO, TENERIFE, SPAIN 

KM: What motivates you on the water? 
Lorenzo Casati: Every time I land new tricks I get even more motivation to keep training harder and harder. 

KM: What is your off-the-water training like? 
LC: I always try to be active. I will do a workout, go for a run or a swim in the sea or if there are some waves I will go for a surf session. 

KM: Any recommendations for learning new tricks? 

LC: I think that the best way to learn new tricks is to watch a lot of videos of the trick you want to learn and then try it in the water. Also I think that it’s really important to progress by steps; If for example you can’t do a Boardoff there’s no sense to try a Kiteloop Boardoff, you’ll only get hurt.

KM: What would you say to anyone wanting to learn to kite? 

LC: That you must try kitesurfing because it’s a special sport that keeps you connected to the ocean and nature. It can let you fly in the sky or surf big waves. 

KM: What inspires you? 

LC: Flying high in the sky, surfing big waves, discovering new places and meeting new people. 

KM: What do you like about big air competition? 

LC: I like competitions because you can learn so much from them; you can compare yourself with other riders, meet many people and discover new places. 

KM: How did you get to where you are today? 

LC: Training a lot of hours in and out of the water, making a lot of sacrifices and the desire to always improve. Also thanks to my dad for getting me into the sport and always believing in me. And thanks to my sponsors Duotone and Ion for supporting me with the best gear.
