Jason Dill

Artist. Skater. Fucking Awesome.

WHO THE F*CK IS THIS GUY?

Jason Dill in Alien Workshop’s “Mindfield”

He’s been on the cover of Thrasher twice. He rode for the Vans pro team and has more sneakers named after him than most people have children. He’s a huge influence on the world of skateboarding and the culture around it. The way he dresses, the crazy behavior that’s made him a legend— it’s all helped build a legacy around skateboarding that we all should be thanking Dill for every day.

The guy founded Fucking Awesome, keeping it completely independent even as it’s grown to one of the biggest skate and clothing brands on the entire planet. That’s pretty sick.

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE.

Jason Dill showed that skaters could become more than just athletes — they could become legends. He’s also managed to keep his rebel streak throughout all of his success. He still designs every single graphic, board, and clothing item for Fucking Awesome himself. When you’re the best there is, why go to someone else?
