From 2007-2011 Alex Perelson was the youngest competitor in the field. Now 25, Perelson has racked up 9 X Games appearances with a best finish of 4th (twice). The winner of the 2006 Tampa Am and the 2009 Maloof Cup still competes as an amateur as he doesn't have a board sponsor, odd considering his Nov. 2014 Thrasher vert/tranny video "Snow Blind" is considered a jaw dropper. Whether it's park or vert, Alex is one of the most focused skaters in the field. He was the second person in history to land a 900 during a skate vert run, yet he refuses to land one now. Alex has a house in the SoCal skating hotspot of Vista, CA.
- X Games Austin 2016 will be his 10th appearance; best Vert finish (4th) in 2007 and 2015
- Was the youngest athlete in XG SKB Vert every year from 2007 and 2011.
- Won his first major event, the Maloof Money Cup, in July 2009 when he landed a 900.
- Became the 4th skater in history to land the 900 in vert (July 12, 2009); only the 2nd to land it in a vert comp run (instead of Best Trick).
- Tore his PCL at the beginning of 2016.
