Alex Sorgente

 “Alessandro (Alex) Sorgente is a young skateboarder who is already a seasoned traveler and a skater of all terrains. He loves to session with the older guys and he learns so fast. When you show him a trick, he picks it up right away. He always skates as hard as he can. He has a heart and passion for skateboarding unlike any other kid I’ve ever met. He also helps with the Grind for Life demos and knows that he is helping GFL raise awareness about helping people with cancer through his skateboarding. He’s an awesome kid who is entertaining to watch when he rides and has a huge bag of tricks” –Mike Rogers, Grind for Life.
