He is the creator of the Street League Skateboarding - a professional skateboarding contest.
This cause is close to Dyrdek because of the ties he has with being a professional skateboarder.
Practicing this sport is hard for most people because street skating is illegal in most communities and these communities often do not have legal skate parks available.
As part of the launch campaign, he performed a "kickflip" with a Sonic (a full 360 degree rotation of the vehicle) over the world's largest skateboard (on record), which he also created.
He performed the stunt at Six Flags Magic Mountain. This foundation builds legal skate parks for skateboarders in their communities.
Dyrdek was also featured in the video games skate., and Skate 2 (which also featured Boykin).
During the days of Rob & Big, the two were featured in an episode where they were actually going to the EA building to shoot for the game.In 2014, Dyrdek was labeled as one of the 'Most influential skateboarders of all-time' by Fox Weekly.Of his early interest in the sport, Dyrdek has stated, "I was a pretty driven young man. 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." At the age of twelve, Dyrdek acquired sponsorship from the same company that Blender was a team member of and began his skateboarding career.During the course of the first season, he also opened his first Safe Spot Skate Spot with the sponsorship of Carl's Jr.At the grand-opening, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa rode with Dyrdek on the world's largest skateboard.Fantasy Factory aired a total of six seasons, with the season finale airing on March 13, 2014.
