At 8 years old Alize Montes is already considered one of the best young girl skaters in the world. Alize started skating when she was just five years old. And she was a snowboarder before that. Alize competed in her first snowboarding contest last month, and she plans on entering more snowboarding events this season. This coming skate season, Alize will be competing in mostly street contest. She finds skating street more challenging then skating bowls.
Alize is in her 3rd year of skating for Cool Girl Decks, and we're very lucky to have her on our team. Her other sponsors are Etnies, Volcom, Von Zipper, Bones, and Destructo Trucks.
Keep your eyes out for Alize Montes, this girl is going places!
