Get to know Pro Skater Rob Dyrdek and the MTV Fantasy Factory gang! Rob breaks records (more than 21), makes fantasies come true, gives to his community and is just an all round good guy. He lives life large and to the fullest. He's famous yet humble. But more importantly, he makes a difference in the lives of children and those less fortunate.


Who Is Rob Dyrdek?


Rob's a dreamer who isn't scared to take risks. He's got the gift to gab and a dangerous knack for persuasion. You may know him from MTV's reality series Rob And Big. But he's also a pro skateboarder who refuses to stop chasing glory, plus he's got a knack for business. Born in Ohio, Rob picked up a skateboard for the first time at the age of 12. In one month he won his first competition and became the youngest member of the G&S Skateboard Team.


Rob turned pro at the age of 16. At the same time he became one of the founding members of the legendary Alien Workshop team. His legend grew fast. He's contributed game-changing shoe design concepts, developed private training facilities for pro boarders and launched companies like Rogue Status, a streetwear line he owns with former blink- 182 drummer Travis Barker. He also created the Wild Grinders cartoon and toy line (based on his childhood skate crew) and formed a charitable foundation to build skate plazas around the country so kids have a safe place to skate.


Not one to slow down, Rob continues to think big. With a goal to "mogul up," he's created Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, a place to dream up ideas and bring them to life. So, despite his success, Rob won't be slowing down anytime soon. In fact, he's just getting started.
