Maybe it’s his shy confidence or loose perfection, but Alex Olson’s become skateboarding’s favorite enigma. Because Alex can do what he wants when he wants and so distinctly that his self-editing is almost a separate skill. What isn’t up for analysis or just too meta to digest, is that Alex’s skating combines the spirit and aggression of its California roots, refined and juxtaposed with a New York City mindset and eye.
