Part 1 of Dylan’s series was a lot of fun to make. I would say that I pride myself on knowing quite bit about skateboarding, but I was almost completely unaware of his presence in this video until I heard Dylan mention he was in it. Dylan already has a history. He is an old school Cali skater, he came up through CASL contests, he can rip parks and street at the same level, and has the video coverage to prove it. Dylan is the most exciting skater out right now, hands down. That is a pretty bold statement, but it is based on Jim Thiebaud’s face. Now Jim has probably seen some of the some of the craziest and most innovative skating in the past 25 years. He hosted probably the greatest contest of all time, and has overseen teams with guys like Cardiel, the Gonz, and Busenitz. So when he makes a face like this after seeing someone do a singular trick, you know he’s got it.
In this part we hear more from Mark Oblow about Dylan’s rising star. Most younger skaters might not know about Mark or remember some of the companies he ran/owned like Color and Prime Skateboards. They were sick, and you should look up all the videos on YouTube and realize that Mark has been behind some of the most powerful and innovative skaters for the past 20 years.
Has it all from Time Code era Kalis footage to Dill talking about what it takes to create a memorable look. Oh yeah, Bill Strobeck also fills you in on how it all goes down when two of skateboarding’s most eligible bachelors enter the same bar in LA.
Dylan Rieder wraps it up with a little talk about his Mind Field and Gravis parts.

Some skate purists (and a few Barneys) aren’t feeling ledge combo tricks. At the beginning of this amazing line, Dave shows how a proper one done fast is a thing of beauty.
