Desillusion magazine, supported by ANALOG and ALIEN WORKSHOP are proud to present their latest video “This is Dylan”, a video portrait that pays tribute to the stylish Californian skateboarder , Dylan Rieder.

At only 24, Dylan’s name is already well engraved in the history of skateboarding, thanks to his style, his personality and his incredible gift; that of skating fast and skating well.The skateboard mag voted him as 2006’s years best am award, but since then he turned pro, came out with an insane part in Mind Field, and has been blowing minds with his steezy tricks all across the world. After a rather tormented period, where he tasted the dark side of street life, and where he found himself literally catapulted to the front of the scene, Dylan got back up again,brushed himself off and with incredible maturity, imposed his own style, a style which quickly turned him into an icon for an entire generation of skateboarders.
With the extremely stylish Jason Dill for mentor, and Mark Oblow as a teacher, nothing seems to be able to resist the boy. Design, fashion, skateboarding, everything he touches seems to turn to gold, a privilege which has allowed him to stay true to himself and to his beliefs, whatever the cost, giving him the priceless freedom of being able to simply say ‘no’. Interviews, huge contracts, photoshoots, Dylan takes care of every part of his career, of his image, his lifestyle, making him one of the most atypical skaters of
the new generation.
Quiet, discrete, with an irresistible aura that characterizes the legends of our subculture,“This is Dylan” is a total immersion in his everyday life, a celebration of raw counter culture: when aesthetics and style become much more than just a clever marketing strategy to seduce the largest number of kids, when the sun and streets of California come together to give us their utmost best.
After the great success of “This is Trouble”, a short movie portraying the life of snowboarder and musician Trevor “Trouble” Andrew that was launched last February (, the second, a tribute to Andrew Reynolds “ This is Andrew” ( ) , the third “This is Ozzie”, a dedication to one of the most influential inspirations of the board culture scene, Ozzie Wright ( ), and the fourth opus on Hippie longboarder Alex Knost ( ), Desillusion is proud to present the fifth opus of the ” THIS IS” saga , with Dylan rieder as guest host, a strong personality who’s always inspired Desillusion’s world with his particular sense of aesthetic.

The video comes with the latest issue of Desillusion magazine featuring Dylan Rieder as their exclusive guest editor, available on

TEMPLE - A monochrome skateboarding quest | David & Douglas

TEMPLE – A monochrome skateboarding quest | David & Douglas

TEMPLE is a conceptual monochrome short film, following skateboarder Sammy Montano on a journey through the Balkans and its fallen monuments. It was essential to transcribe them with respect according to our vision, to spiritualize the expression of their magnificent forms, timeless aesthetics and monumental dimensions. Confronting them with skateboarding allowed us to animate this notion of freedom and exploration. Sammy Montano places himself as a central witness, being both the representation of this quest but also its outcome. It represents the doubt that animates each of us in the face of the unknown and this constantly renewed desire to take step in search of the answers to our deepest beliefs. This film is a personal art project, a pure reverence and tribute to these monuments, better known as « Spomeniks » and their legacy.
