Rob Dyrdek is a professional skateboarder, actor, entrepreneur, producer, and a reality TV star. He was born on June 28, 1974, in Kettering, Ohio, to Gene and Patty Dyrdek. That makes Rob Dyrdek’s age 42. He started skateboarding when he was 12, and it pretty much took over his life. About his passion, Dyrdek said, “I was a pretty driven young man. I was so focused on becoming a pro skateboarder. I would sit in school and think about all the tricks I was going to do; then I’d get out of school and skate until they made me come inside.”

I don’t want to write this post. I don’t want to believe that this is reality. I’m so thankful for you. We truly were brothers who lived an unexpected, unforgettable adventure. I just can’t fathom that it would end so suddenly. You will forever be in my heart.”
