I spent two weeks with this little fake Canadian Alec Majerus (he's from Minnesota, but pretty far up there), on a Vans Midwest tour this past fall and I was blown away by his ability to do every trick I called out. He just won the 2012 Tampa Am contest and is about to graduate from high school and promptly move to California. Being in close proximity to his big-name sponsors such as Flip, Vans and Volcom, I assume that this kid will be championed and highly marketed this year.
