Alphonzo Rawls #2.
Alf is from Oceanside, California. He basically grew up skateboarding and is even in the background of Animal Chin when Tony Hawk ollies the fence at Del Mar. H-Street was his first sponsor. He would later turn pro and did some graphics for them as well. After the Plan B defection, Alf was briefly sponsored by Sal Rocco's Bitch Skateboards. He soon switched over to Natural, a company run by Danny Mayer and distributed by Vision. It was on to Tree Fort next and finally Expedition One. Alphonzo started designing shoes for Kastel and Duffs so he moved behind the scenes as the years moved along. He is currently doing a clothing company called Everybody Skates.
