Alex Midler Drops 5 Hammers in '5 FOR 5'

The young gun opens up the new Red Bull Skateboarding series with a handful of heavy tricks in L.A.
By Josh T. Saunders

Welcome to "5 FOR 5." The idea is simple: We challenged five of the biggest names in the next class of young pros to film five tricks and send the footage our way. No guidelines, no limits, just five bangers to prove to us that we should remember their name. Over the next five weeks, we're giving you one at time.

For Week 1 we sent it with Alex Midler in California. Midler's top five sets the bar high for the rest of the crew — we'll see if they can rise to the occasion.

Midler's 5:

  • Frontside Smith Grind
  • Backside Tailslide
  • Backside 270 Lipslide
  • Frontside Smith Kickflip Out
  • Frontside Crooked Shuvit Out

Like we said, Midler was first up for the "5 FOR 5" series. Stay tuned to the Red Bull Skateboarding channels to see what's dropping on a weekly basis from this fresh generation of pro skateboarders and to get your fix of the next five.
