Words and Photos: Aaron Smith

In our recent issue, little Alex Midler handled a Who’s Hot. This little 15 year old rips in the streets and in the parks. Here’s some photos from the day we went out and got the Who’s Hot photo.

Alex started the day by boardsliding this long out rail. This thing is pretty hard to shoot to show everything. I also knew this wouldn’t be too hard for him.

We ended the day at this out ledge. This backsmith may not be the gnarliest thing he’s ever done but if you do something with style it will make up for any lack of difficulty. Having good style at that age is pretty impressive. He did this backsmith pretty easily. Here’s the close vertical angle.

Here’s the horizontal still that we used in the magazine. You’ll be seeing much more of this kid in the near feature.
