Congratulations to #RipperoftheWeek, Alex W. of Dallas, OR! Alex and the homies romped their way around Western Oregon University in the hunt for spots and came up with some gems!

Keep your entries coming and you could be next week's winner! Remember, winners aren't chosen by their skill but by their creativity, style, stoke, and most importantly, how much fun they're having.
Yo yo, Alex! How long have you been ripping for?
I've always had a skateboard but I started getting serious and loving skateing prob around 10.
Favorite spot to #CatchARip?
My favorite spot to skate... that's a hard one. Probably Portland Community College but I heard it got knobbed sooo maybe Washington-Jefferson or Battleground Skatepark.
What's the story behind your winning post?
We were skating Dallas Skatepark like any other day and dill [sic], I think kinda jokingly said we should go skate street and everyone was down so off we went on a spur of the moment street mission. We skated WOU until we got kicked out by security.. twice. But I was feeling good still so I said we should stop by the 8 rail before we head back so I can feeble it. My homies were hypin' me up to do it so I had to! Got it in like 10 or 11 tries and was just way beyond stoked!
Any thanks, shoutouts, or things you'd like to add?
My buddies Noel, Jesse, Ryan, my homie Kobe and all the DBoys too!
