Early Life: Dyrdek was born in Kettering, Ohio on June 28, 1974. He was involved in sports growing up and started skateboarding when he was 11, after pro skateboarder Neil Blender gave him his first skateboard. Of his early interest in the sport, Dyrdek has stated, "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." When he was 12, Dyrdek was sponsored by the same company that Blender was a team member of and began his skateboarding career. A few years later, Dyrdek and Blender quit their board sponsor and created Alien Workshop. He left his home at the age of 16 to move to Southern California to become a professional skateboarder.

The league paid out the highest overall purse in the history of the sport, at $1.6 million for its championship event broadcast on ESPN in 198 countries.

The organization was also the focus of Dyrdek's documentary film The Motivation, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
