Alex Baker

For Brofile #9 we lined up local ripper Alex Baker and put him in the spotlight. We shot these photos over two sessions — a little park and a little street, challenged Alex a little and he more than nailed it. A purveyor of colourful shirts and hand-crafted griptape art, we caught up with Alex to give his two cents for our quick fire questions. Here’s what he had to say…

Name: Alex Baker

Age? 17.

Reg­u­lar or goofy? Regular.

Fav local spot/skatepark: The bean hive.

Fav trick? Nollie-flip.

Street/Park/Bowl? Street, always something new to try.

Who hooks you up? No-one.

Fav all time skate­boarder? Harry (main) Warburton.

Fav skate vid/ last one you watched? Ritchie Jackson part two.

Lis­ten­ing to music while skat­ing? Yea, Wu-Tang/the xx.

Tight or loose trucks? Loose.

Worst skat­ing injury? Nothing to worry about (rolled ankle).

Cur­rent setup? Nelson Creek board, Venture trucks, Spitfire wheels, Bones bearings and Lucky hardware.

A good skateboarder’s diet should always include? Teza iced tea and mango, gotta stay healthy.

What are you going to be doing in 5 years? Living.

Any final words? Peace, out.
