If you’re not sure who to trust in this corporate-driven world, trust one of the guys who actually skates—Dylan Rieder. He sports his signature Gravis Dylan Mid on his foot when he lays down stuff so sick we can’t even describe it in words. Well, we researched it and decided it’s not the high-traction rubber sole that helps him stick everything. And his style is only accented (not created) by the waxed upper canvas that shows scratches like your board shows rail streaks. The reason he’s so damn ill is that he works so hard at his skating, so get out there and skate if you want to get good.
