Unbelievably consistent Floridian skater, Alex Sorgente, is looked upon as the international pace-setter in concrete contest culture today.

Born in 1997 in Lake Worth, Florida, USA, ‘Alex’ grew up between his family’s home in the Sunshine State and his father’s native home in Bologna, Italy.

Alex honed his cross-continental skills in the amateur Bowl Rider circuit with back-to-back wins in the vaunted Vans Combi Pool Amateur series, bronze in the 2011 World Championships and became Grind For Life’s Champion for five years running (2007-2011).

Alex took his first Pro win in Newcastle, Australia at the Pro Australian Bowl Championships in 2013. He then followed up with a first in the bowl contest during a now-legendary dogfight at Prague’s fabled Mystic Cup in 2014, leading to back-to-back X Games Park gold medals in 2016 and 2017.

2018 would see Alex take first place at the Vans Park Series in China and then first place overall at the 2018 Vans Park Series.

Alex was a shoo-in to the USA Skateboarding team for Tokyo and uses his base in Carlsbad, California to dial in new benchmark tricks on the skateparks throughout the state.

January 2020 saw Alex debut his first full video part, turning heads and blowing minds on behalf of truck sponsor Independent.

Why is there so much skateboarding heat coming out of Florida currently, we asked Alex. “I guess we’re just super-hungry. All the skating is on the west coast, so we have to work harder to get onto the scene. We’re all dreamers, so we all put our heads down and just learn everything we need to learn.”
