Chalk it up to good genes, parenting tactics, or basic sibling rivalry, but there are a lot of ripping relatives in the skateboarding world. Enter “Brothers,” a three-part series on brothers who all share a common bond around skateboarding. In each episode, we’ll meet siblings whose combined passion has propelled them both to a life centered in skateboarding.
First up, the young prodigy Alex Midler and his brother Todd Midler, who is an aspiring photographer and filmmaker currently studying in NYC. The two grew up skating together, which eventually lead to Todd starting to film Alex and putting out his parts. Those edits showed the skate world how talented Alex is, and were his first big steps toward where he finds himself today.
