i lost one of the most important people of my life. someone that is as close to me as a son. my chosen son. someone i was with for the past 17 years. someone i traveled the world with, someone i fought every battle with,someone i celebrated victories with. someone i shared friends and love for our friends with. dylan fought a battle like a warrior! i could not believe the strength he had. thank you to all his friends, fans for the support and love. he loved you all very deeply. with all this and the heart break i'm feeling i truly know dylan would want us all to smile and remember him and how he spoke to all of us with his magic. i'll love you forever and not 1 second will go by that your not in my heart or on my mind! till we meet again in the next life! a l o h a my warrior a l o h a my hero a l o h a my love...... dylan forever

Dylan Rieder - Love and Aloha, Brother...




May 26, 1988 - October 12, 2016 

These photos below were from our brother, Kenny Brimer's Celebration Of Life Memorial on Oahu, Hawaii in 2010. Mark Oblow always shared his home island with Dylan and it became his second home.  At that time, Dylan came to pay his respects with Oblow for Kenny, who passed from his own battle with Leukemia.  Dylan is and always will be an island braddah... and both he and Kenny are already ripping, Together Together.

3 Boards...True Love ...

• I rode two of these @art_is_tree / jef hartsel boards when they first came out on alva (both red at the time and with that unique tri-tail). harts was always a huge influence as the salt lake / aliamanu crew I grew up with had his younger sister in our 8th grade math class. she shared his photos in thrasher mag and we felt connected for the first time to a pro skateboarder. with harts being asian, it was even more of a connection than any other, especially since he ripped pools, curbs and everything else with style and power. most importantly, harts has been a brother to me in friendship and support for years. besides @bxlx, harts was the reason why I truly had fun with my last board company. mahalo, braddah! stoked to have a few of these decks around with me. #jefhartsel #chosenbrothersratherthanblood #hawaiiskateboardingroyalty

Mark Oblow reaches 100 on his weekly photo column, "Back Den" at What Youth Magazine

Congratulations to Mark Oblow for his 100th submission into his weekly column on What Youth called, "Back Den." 

They made a video of all 100 photographs and I slowed it down to a 57 second clip with Oblow's personal request of a Dennis Kamakahi song entitled, "Ulili E."

Also check out my personal favorite song from this legendary Hawaiian musician and songwriter with, "Wahine 'Ilikea."
