The skateboard community is in shock today at the premature passing of one of the true greats: Dylan Rieders skateboarding and style touched so many peoples lives, he will be sorely missed and the internet is already full of heartfelt condolences from people that knew him personally or just looked to him as an inspiration.

Info from Dylans manager stated that he passed away due to complications with leukemia aged 28 on the 12th October surrounded by family and friends.

“His passion for life, art, music, fashion and skateboarding has always been contagious”

Our thoughts and best wishes go out to his family and friends at this time.
