LarnaCan Skate & Paint
I love it when I find ‘something out of the ordinary’, slightly off the beaten track, run by a guy who just wants to do what he loves with a passion. Savvinos is absolutely passionate about anything to do with ‘skate culture‘ in Larnaca and I’ve known him from the old indoor skate park days, sadly closing, he’s sticking to his passions, his life these days is ‘Rolling Pleasure’
The Love of Art
The paint bit comes from his love of art, qualifying in Mixed Media in Boston, MA, in the Studio for Interrelated Media he fell in love with contemporary art, and in 2003 he opened a studio/gallery called Afydatwn which remained open ’til 2014.
Inside & Out
Limassol born but living in Larnaka, Savvinos with 29 years experience, has been skating since he was 8, he told me he would hear all the kids complaining they had nowhere to skate, so he opened LarnaCan Indoor Skate Arena so they could have a place to go, where they could skate, with a little loud music, cafe, pool table, summer or winter and he’d give lessons to new skaters. Bringing it outside, Savvinos recently designed the new outdoor Skate Park for Larnaka’s municipality.
Savvinos urge never to give in was irresistible, finding this little shop so he could continue to bring you somewhere to buy the best in Skateboarding and Graffiti Supplies and all it’s related apparel.
