Professional Skateboarder Dylan Rieder Has Sadly Passed Away From Complications With Leukemia.

Shred in peace Dylan.

by Hadrien Turner

It’s only once in a lifetime that a skater as talented (let alone handsome) as Dylan Rieder comes around. Starting as a young Quiksilver sponsoree (when they still had a skate team) to turning pro for Alien Workshop, and eventually blossoming into the stylish beast we all know and love as an integral part of Anthony Van Engelen and Jason Dill’s Fucking Awesome, he’s had a massive impact on the progression and culture of skateboarding as a whole. 

Today we bring you the news that he has tragically passed away at the age of 28 years old, following a two year battle with leukemia. In the end, surrounded by family and friends, it was a battle that he succumbed to. 

To celebrate the life of such an epic and fashionable skater who will be sorely missed by all for his contributions on and off the board, we have shared just a few of his standout parts from over the years. You're one of the best to ever do it, rest in peace Dylan.
