Ali Boulala (born January 28, 1979 in Stockholm, Sweden) is a professional skateboarder who rides for Flip Skateboards, Flip Clothing, Independent trucks and Flip wheels. He is known for his relaxed but flamboyant style and filmed notable parts in the Flip videos Sorry and Really Sorry, Osiris "Subject to Change" and also appeared in numerous Baker skateboards videos.
His approach to skateboarding concentrates on the unusual or unobvious, preferring to skate unfilmed spots and experiment with tricks. He is also famous for his unprecedented attempt at ollieing a twenty-five stair in France. This famous attempt was featured in Flip Skateboard's 2002 video release, Sorry. He is also famous for having a part in all of the Baker Skateboard Videos.
Swedish-born Boulala has pioneered skating manoeuvres, featured in skateboarding videos, featured on the front cover of Transworld Skateboarding magazine and designed his own shoes. About 100,000 skateboards have been sold carrying his name since he turned professional in 1997.
He has a pro shoe with Etnies which features the thinnest cupsole from Etnies with G2 gel. He has since been released from the Etnies roster, most likely because he is currently in jail.
Boulala is now in jail, having been sentenced for 4 years because of Shane Cross' death. (Flip Skateboards website)
Osiris Shoes produced Ali Brothel creeper skateboarding trainers, designed by Ali.
