Dianda and Dyrdek’s story is exceptionally compelling because of their revolutionary design: they mimicked the city-center park that every skater dreams of infiltrating–and made it hospitable enough that they can coexist with the wheel-less. You can see the trailer for their film, “Groundbreaking,” by going here.
We also like this quote that sums up what 95% of the world’s population thinks about skateboarding:
“Our sport is so absolutely misrepresented,” groans Dyrdek. “As a pro, the first thing people ask me is, ‘Do you know Tony Hawk?’ and ‘Have you skated in the X Games?’ And the answer to both is yes. But they have nothing to do with our sport today.”
Thanks to skater dude Keith Scharwath.
