Hometown: Encinitas, California

Axell “Slay” Hodges likes to film the riding he loves to do around his house and with his friends. Slay is all about having fun and doing what makes him happy. Maybe that’s why he’s built a serious name for himself by posting his massive whips, turn downs and his creative lines with wheelies, stoppies, transfers, and everything in-between to Snapchat and Instagram. Besides his on point social media game, Slay’s taken the Best Whip in X Games and competed in Step Up, Real Moto and FMX Quarterpipe. When he’s not throwing it down on his bike, Slay can be found chowing down on his favorite Mexican food at Rico’s Taco Shop in his hometown of Encinitas, California.
