Skateboarder Rob Dyrdek has been riding professionally since he was only 16 years old. Since then, he’s gotten into all manner of businesses. Now, at 37, he’s come full circle.
Dyrdek announced last week that his down-town L.A. company, Dyrdek Enterprises Inc., acquired skateboard company DNA Distribution. It’s a significant purchase because DNA brand Alien Workshop first sponsored young Dyrdek.
DNA is a Dayton, Ohio, supplier of skateboard decks, wheels, grip tape and other accessories, and includes brands Habitat and Reflex in addition to Alien Workshop. The Habitat brand also includes apparel and shoes.
Dyrdek used his skateboarding stardom to get into a variety of industries, including consumer goods, apparel, video games, toys, cartoons, construction and entertainment. He is best known for his MTV shows “Rob & Big,” “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory” and “Ridiculousness,” all of which he writes, stars in and produces. He started Dyrdek Enterprises in 1999 as the umbrella company for his ventures.
Long before its popularity as recreational activity, skiing in the Sierra was chiefly a competitive sport, stimulated by wagers between immigrant Norwegian miners in Plumas, Sierra and Nevada counties, just north of Lake Tahoe. Most had learned the sport as children. They fashioned homemade 10-to-13-foot-long, 4-inch-wide skis from Douglas fir.

For twenty winters, beginning in 1856, he delivered the mail between Genoa, Nevada–the first town in the state–and Placerville, California, called “Hangtown” at the time.

With 50 to 80 pounds on his back, Thompson would make the eastward journey in three days, often returning in two. Carrying neither blankets nor a heavy jacket, he relied on his exertion and an evening campfire for warmth, reportedly surviving one blizzard by lighting a dead tree on fire.
