Like most interesting figures in the world of entrepreneurship, MTV reality star and skateboarding legend Rob Dyrdek has made a name for himself through showcasing his versatile talents. Having picked up his first deck at the age of 11, the Ohio native turned pro by 16, which marked the start of a career that has exuded creativity ever since.

As if being an exceptional athlete only would not suffice, Rob Dyrdek has launched various lines of clothing with DC Shoes, of which he is a part owner, starred in three MTV reality shoes and executed over 10 world record stunts both on the board and off, including the farthest jump by a car in a reverse, a feat for which Elite TV’s cameras were on the scene to capture.

In an all-access feature that went behind the scenes at Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory series finale in Los Angeles, the skateboarding star reflected on the progress of his ventures, the process of bringing his most creative ideas to fruition and his overall thoughts on a career that has continued to capture the imagination of his fans in part of an exclusive mini-documentary shot by Elite Daily. This is Relentless: The Rob Dyrdek Story.
