Long May You Ride


Professional skateboarder Dylan Rieder, who burst onto the scene at 13, when he won the 2001 Damn Am contest, died of complications of leukemia on Oct. 12 in Duarte, Calif. He was 28. He turned pro at 18 and starred in many videos, making his debut in Transworld Skateboarding's "A Time to Shine" and winning the magazine's 2015 award for Best Part in "Cherry," a short put out by his sponsor, Supreme. The Westminster, Calif., native also influenced skater style through his look; his store, The Hunt, in New York City; and his work as a model, including a DKNY ad campaign in '14. "He had style and grace that most of us can only wish for," skate legend Tony Hawk told SI's sister publication PEOPLE.
