Alex Berenguel

United States

Alex Berenguel is one of the earliest members of the CLYW team, and one of the most unsung heroes of 1A return top play. Since the early 2000s, Alex has been injecting fearless creativity and truly unique trick construction into the world of modern 1A return top play. Alex spent a full decade dominating the Midwest Regional contest, and his fluid and unique play style influenced an entire generation of midwestern players.

He’s a solid dude and a crazy good player and we love the guy like you wouldn’t believe.
