For the past several months Alex Olson has been tight lipped regarding his future alliance and endorsement with a board sponsor. As we remember, he abruptly dipped away from Brian Anderson’s 3D Skateboards corral before it got off the launch pad. Well, it has been recently disclosed that Alex’s past social media posts tied to the number 917-692-2706 have in fact pointed to his very own skateboard brand now fully disclosed and titled as Bianca Chandon.
Mackenzie Eisenhour caught up with Alex in this TWS interview to discuss his launch of the brand, the polar opposites of skateboarding, and much more.
