DESILUSION MAGAZINE - This is Dylan | David & Douglas

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

Southsiders present: Wheels & Waves - Third Edition | David & Douglas

Southsiders present: Wheels & Waves – Third Edition | David…

The official video of the Wheels & Waves 2014 organized by The Southsiders. WHEELS & WAVES 2014 was crazy! The dream we had to one day bring together all the people we love and who share our passion for custom motorcycles is being realised each June in the beautiful town of Biarritz. More than two months have passed since the third edition of Wheels and Waves and we have only just landed back on planet Earth. As summer 2014 slowly comes to an end we’re proud to release our official video: a seven minutes edit that will take you back to the epic journey we all shared as family and friends on the road and in the water. This year we were overwhelmed by the number of participants from over over Europe, North American and even Asia who came to see motorcycles presented as art as well as to take their machines through the mountains and over the boarder to Spain on some awesome rides. W&W is not a purist or elitist event and we welcomed every type and style of custom bike with influences from skate, surf, bmx, bicycle, music, hot rod, chopper, shed, gonzo and too many other styles and cultures to mention from many generations and age groups. As Wheels and Waves grows bigger we want to keep pushing boundaries and will increase the emphasis on creativity, interactivity, enthusiasm and spontaneity, so stay aware as more is to come. Le rêve que nous avons eu un jour de réunir une communauté d’individus passionnés comme nous par la moto custom et l’univers qui y est lié devient plus réel que jamais. Plus de deux mois se sont écoulés depuis la troisième édition de Wheels and Waves et nous reposons tout juste les pieds sur terre. Alors que l’été touche doucement à sa fin, nous sommes fiers de vous présenter notre vidéo officielle : un film de sept minutes à travers lequel vous replongerez dans la troisième édition de notre réunion annuelle – et quel event !! Cette année, un nombre encore plus impressionnant de participants est venu des quatre coins d’Europe et même plus loin, pour atteindre le point de rendez vous emblématique du phare de Biarritz. Il est difficile de qualifier Wheels and Waves comme un événement purement moto, même si la moto et le custom sont un vecteur commun à la majorité des participants. Nous avons vu cette année que les cultures surf, skate et même bmx étaient largement représentées, et que Wheels and Waves attirait une jeunesse en quête de nouveaux moyens d’expression. Alors que Wheels and Waves grandit au fil des années, nous le voulons ouvert et reflet des tendances actuelles. Nous continuerons à repousser nos limites et à privilégier la créativité, l’enthousiasme et la spontanéité. Restez connectés, la suite est à venir !
