Alex Perelson, 23, came through the ranks -- from winning the Tampa Am in 2006 to winning the Maloof Cup in 2009 -- and became a regular at X Games in 2007, when he debuted with a fourth place finish in Vert. Even though he competes as an amateur, he's always on the cusp of the top pro skaters. Whether it's park or vert, Alex is one of the most focused skaters in the field. He has technical tricks and was the second person in history to land a 900 during a skate vert run. Alex has a house in the SoCal skating hotspot of Vista, CA.
- Alex has competed seven times in Vert at X Games, but his best finish came in 2007, his first X Games, when he finished 4th. He was the youngest athlete in X Games SKB Vert every year from 2007 and 2011 until 2012 when that changed in a big way.
