Don’t let Rob Dyrdek’s age fool you. This athlete, businessman, and reality TV star can still hang with the best of them. Don’t let his permanent duck face fool you. Dyrdek is far from smug, although he does have a lot to be smug about. The former pro-skateboarder helped to popularize the sport right alongside other greats, such as Tony Hawk. He has several world records under his belt (although most have been beaten at this point) and several business ventures that have helped to give him the net worth that he enjoys today. That includes helping create the ubiquitous skater shoe company DC Shoes, Alien Workshop (a skateboard deck company), and Silver Trucks. Dyrdek also founded the Street League Skateboarding competition, a now international competition hosting some of the best skateboarders in the world. Dyrdek has also made several minor television and movie appearances, including one small spot in the Johnny Knoxville film Jackass 3.5. Dyrdek has been skateboarding his entire life, earning his first sponsorship when he was only 12 years old.
