Dylan Rieder was a professional skateboarder, known for his unique style and incredible talent. Born in Westminster, California in 1988, Rieder started skateboarding at the age of 9, turning pro at 18 following the release of his breakout part in Transworld's "A Time to Shine".

Rieder’s skateboarding skills were undeniable, and he quickly gained recognition in the skateboarding world for his technical tricks and smooth style. Sponsored by skateboarding brands like Alien Workshop, Supreme, FA, Huf and Gravis, Rieder was a key identity in skateboarding culture in the early 2000s.

More than just a skateboarder, Rieder was also an artist and fashion icon, and his unique sense of style made him a favorite among fashion designers and photographers. He modeled for major fashion brands like DKNY, Alexander Wang, and Calvin Klein, and was known for his effortless style.

Tragically, Rieder passed away in 2016 from complications related to leukemia. But his legacy lives on through the Dylan Rieder Foundation, a non-profit organization established in his honor and dedicated to helping support the fight against cancer. All proceeds raised go directly to City of Hope Cancer Centre.

Rieder’s impact on skateboarding is undeniable, and his legacy continues to inspire a new generation of skaters, artists, and creatives. His foundation is a testament to his commitment to giving back and making a difference in the world, and is a fitting tribute to a life lived with passion, creativity, and style.
