Patrick Lombardi drops another sick video featuring DB Keystone 39 and DL Aerolid Design

Remember Patrick Lombardi from this year’s wettest KnK run with Filippo Salerni? The young Italian swagger dropped in with another cool video featuring DB’s Keystone deck introduced earlier this year and DL Aerolids manufactured by David Lombardi.

Often to be seen slaying local hills with his Gipsy homies, Patrick hit some races this year and managed to place himself on the 27th position in IDF’s European rankings in Open Skateboards category. At Verdicchio Race he did awesome by winning the Italian FHIP Championship.

The highlight of my racing season was the Verdicchio Race. I won the Italian Championship and was so stoked about some pros paying the respect. Yeah swaggers! Haha! ~ Patrick

He managed to finish off the season by messing up his ankle on a miniramp while failing a Rock to Fakie. Bad luck, I guess. We hope to see his gangsta-ass back on the board again by the start of the season 2016. Get well soon bro!

DB’s Keystone 39, a progressive downhill and freeride longboard deck features a comfortable radial concave with micro drops to keep you locked-in in every situation.

As this is becoming a standard in the industry, Keystone also features a poured urethane at the tip and tail to protect the core in cases of hard impact and preventing potential delamination. It’s fully sublimated graphic is infused directly into the thermoplastic base, you’ll be able to enjoy it forever.

To finish it off, here’s what Patrick says about it.

The Keystone 39 is my favourite board so far. It’s nose and tail protection makes it indestructible. The concave is very comfortable and thanks to the micro drop it features, I don’t have to use a footstop anymore. It’s a perfect board for my skating style. ~ Patrick Lombardi

Some of the Root Longboard’s boards are already well known for their unique design and unconventional concave. Combined with “voodoo style” graphics done by the owner Alex Dietrich himself, they are as much enjoyable to look at as they are to ride.

Some years ago, like Alex says, he was playing around with a finish and came up with some really cool looking stuff, a burnt wood style. Since then, he already built some boards featuring this finish style, but those were only few.
