DYLAN RIEDER
by Schmitty

I've known Dylan and his life for a couple of years now, and my beautiful blue eyeballs have watched young Dylan morph from a shrink-wrapped, skeleton-physiqued, brace-faced pre-teen to an un-brace-faced, shrink-wrapped skeleton-physiqued teen. I think the only thing that's changed since I've known him is that he might (and I strongly emphasize might) have hit puberty. I'm not even near a full on legitimate grown up just yet, but I think I might actually be older than Dylan's Dad. Dylan's a young fella, but he's already got some good mentals in that little dome of his—and is one of the rare few kids that seems to be influenced by the more quality things in life. Unfortunately there's not enough up and coming kids that have a noodle like his. Dylan seems to be progressing like a mofo at all types of skating. The last couple of times that I've skated with Dylan in the last couple of years he’s definitely grown some more inches and now has more power, which is giving him a proper-ass style. I'm a picky bastard and don't back too many people thoroughly in the skateboard world but I'm backing Dylan, which is a hard stamp of approval to get from me. Well hot diggity, Dylan, you've now been blessed by "The Me." —Tim O'Connor

Cover boy Jeremy Leabres front blunts through the kink and slides through a 16-page jaw dropper of an interview. Ben Raemers backs it up with a 12-page interview which leaves no doubt that he's one of our country's most valuable imports. GX1000 scrubs away at London; Volcom crushes some cobblestone in Portugal and Vans sends some notes from their video base camp. Fall may be coming but this issue is gonna lift your spirits, kid.Add this one to your collection.
