While we were probably playing with Tech Decks in maths class, Keegan Palmer is not only riding real-life skateboards, but he’s already doing it on a global scale with conviction. Having won virtually every major amateur bowl and park contest that exists, he’s now turning his attention to the pro battlefield – earning sponsorships from Nike SB, Flip, Independent, Bones Wheels, Bronson, Oakley, Boost Mobile and Mob Grip. Not a bad list, is it?
Despite being in his pre-teens, Keegan has been on skateboards for close to a decade, and it shows with his effortlessly slick performances. Having been raised in Australia since he was 2 years old, he now resides in Encinitas, California to focus on his career. Still, he’s already an upcoming globe-trotter, having just trekked around the world for the Vans Park Series.
With two video parts to be unveiled in the near future, Keegan’s resume is stacking up quite nicely – and it’s a little scary to think where he’ll be in just a few years time. See him in action here.
