Hi, my name is Axel Cruysberghs. My discipline is street skating. I was born on 12 October 1994 in Poperinge, Belgium. My philosophy of life is winning isn't everything. The most important person in my life is anyone involved with my life so far. My favourite music is The Black Keys, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Joy Division.

Bio

Axel Cruysberghs hails from Poperinge, west Belgium, where he started skating from an early age, tearing up the street in front of his house. He soon moved on to the local skatepark, where he quickly met like-minded skaters who constantly encouraged each other to push themselves.

In 2009, Axel took first places in both the street skate and mini-ramp events at the European Skateboarding Championships in Basel, Switzerland. In the last few years, more titles have been added to his collection, including his first place finishes at both the Clash contest in Germany and the AmsterDamn Am in Holland. He has held down long- running sponsorhsip deals with Volcom since early on in his career, a loyalty which is paying dividends in terms of his coverage.

But to Axel, life’s not all about winning. He still enjoys entering competitions and demos for the fun and the social aspects of a weekend away. Ironically, it is probably because of his laid-back attitude towards competition that he's ended up doing so well.

With insane footage both in the Volcom Japan tour and independent blockbuster Where We Come From, 2015 has been Axel's most barnstorming  to date, and it doesn't look like there is any let- up in sight!
