Everybody’s been to the massive twelve stair rail, or the new concrete skatepark where rumors and tall tales are shouted about at length to any skateboarder or body in the area… Tales of an unnamed shredder that makes random appearances and pulls the most unexplainable high flying stunts in the history of concrete & skateboarding. If you’ve heard of this madman chances are you’ve heard of Alex “The Wookie” Brand. Yes, that’s right! Making thousands of gnarly appearances at hundreds of skateparks, ranging from the Arizona valleys to the California peaks! Alex has successfully completed some of skateboarding’s most difficult acrobatics. Some leave the park absolutely amazed, others stumble away crying! Well , speculate no more… -J.P.
