Ralph LePera is a college student who enjoys skateboarding in his free-time. He attends his classes three days a week and works the other four days, fitting time to skate in between. Ralph started skateboarding with his friend, Justin, when he was eleven years old and hasn’t lost interest since. He works hard everyday to improve and learn new tricks. There are simple steps to skating that he has always used and will continue to. He gets comfortable for a few minutes to begin. Once he’s feeling good he’ll start attempting tricks, remembering to keep his knees bent and to fall correctly so he doesn’t hurt himself too badly. He then continues to practice until he lands a trick. This process has helped him get to where he is today, yet he’ll never stop progressing.

Ralph is performing a fakie 360 flip.
