The first series of Street League Skateboarding came to an end last Saturday and amongst all the frenzy, Rob Dyrdek made time to speak with TransWorld Business about the contest and explain his thoughts on its future after hosting the first season’s comps.
After all is said and done, Dyrdek is proud of the new format but looks to the future for making the competition all it can be.
“I’m going to do whatever it takes to make it better and better,” said Dyrdek. “Ultimately I have the last say and everyone in this [industry] knows that my interest is skateboarding.”
“We created a very unique scoring system to create a range and make sure guys don’t get under judged or over judged and it just needs refining,” says Dyrdek. “Now, we get to spend the whole year refining it and making it as good as we possibly can.”
Look for the full interview with Rob in an upcoming issue of TransWorld Business where he covers the history of Street League, concerns with the new format and plans to enhance and expand Street League Skateboarding.
