before the bodyguards, bulldogs and bling, Rob Dyrdek was the illest. Straight up, I grew up in the general vicinity of Lil' Rob and it was not uncommon to encounter him (before he moved) on a roadtrip and gain a firsthand account of this dude absolutely ripping shit apart.
I know its easy to hate on the Viacom-steez but dude is unquestionably a smart businessman and I do feel his heart is in the right place as far as skateboarding is concerned... one look at that prominently-displayed art collection of his proves this.
Plus, beaming footage of a Kalis tre to millions of viewers on a major cable network can't be a bad thing.... especially when one considers the alternatives.
and I still think that Bobby Light shit is funny.
(update: rob's switch f/s tail down hubba hideout had to unfortunately be taken down. sorry)
