Last month, renowned professional skateboarder and model Dylan Rieder passed away after a battle with cancer. Since then, we have seen tributes from Fucking Awesome!, Tom Fry and more. Yesterday, Ripped Laces provided another glimpse at the life of Dylan Rieder by publishing an interview with Gravis designer Kelly Kikuta. Kikuta worked with Dylan Rieder for the Gravis Dylan shoes, and shared some unreleased pictures and memories for his new profile. Breaking down his perception of Rider, Kikuta calls him “easy-going, focused” and highlighted his desire to “challenge the system.” “He also understood the big picture as well,” says Kikuta. You can check out the entire piece over at Ripped Laces.
