Few athletes can boast of success in various sports. But Sean Palmer is one of those. Known by the nicknames “Napalm” and “Palm Daddy”, he is considered one of the founders of extreme sports.
An American snowboarder, skier, mountain biker and motocross racer was born on November 14, 1968 in South Lake Tahoe (California, USA). From early childhood, Sean was interested in activities in which there is great speed. In an interview with People magazine, his mother said: “Wheels or boards – it doesn’t matter, it should be super-fast. He was not afraid of anything. Once, when he was 13, he was punished, then he jumped out of the window of his room on the second floor, got on his bike and sped off. Sean has always been like this – pushing the boundaries. ”
