Axel Cruysberghs might have a Belgian last name that none of your friends can properly pronounce, his awesome blend of finesse and force on a skateboard is a thing a raw beauty that translates perfectly. A once under-the-radar ripper from overseas, Axel starting making a name for himself with runs that always stepped up the energy levels in the crowds and on the course at major Am events from Amsterdam to the United Stated. But Axel quickly became more than just a fan favorite around the event scene with his appearance on Thrasher’s King of the Road on Vice in 2016. After that season the entire skate world was tuned into his heavy duty skills as he put them on display as the flow skater with the Toy Machine team. Keep an eye on Axel as he transitions his way into the professional ranks, already with a top-10 finish at the 2018 Tampa Pro.
