Desillusion magazine, supported by ANALOG and ALIEN WORKSHOP are proud to present their latest video “This is Dylan”, a video portrait that pays tribute to the stylish Californian skateboarder , Dylan Rieder.
At only 24, Dylan's name is already well engraved in the history of skateboarding, thanks to his style, his personality and his incredible gift; that of skating fast and skating well.The skateboard mag voted him as 2006's years best am award, but since then he turned pro, came out with an insane part in Mind Field, and has been blowing minds with his steezy tricks all across the world. After a rather tormented period, where he tasted the dark side of street life, and where he found himself literally catapulted to the front of the scene, Dylan got back up again,brushed himself off and with incredible maturity, imposed his own style, a style which quickly turned him into an icon for an entire generation of skateboarders.
With the extremely stylish Jason Dill for mentor, and Mark Oblow as a teacher, nothing seems to be able to resist the boy. Design, fashion, skateboarding, everything he touches seems to turn to gold, a privilege which has allowed him to stay true to himself and to his beliefs, whatever the cost, giving him the priceless freedom of being able to simply say 'no'. Interviews, huge contracts, photoshoots, Dylan takes care of every part of his career, of his image, his lifestyle, making him one of the most atypical skaters of the new generation.
Quiet, discrete, with an irresistible aura that characterizes the legends of our subculture,“This is Dylan” is a total immersion in his everyday life, a celebration of raw counter culture: when aesthetics and style become much more than just a clever marketing strategy to seduce the largest number of kids, when the sun and streets of California come together to give us their utmost best.

Desillusion magazine, supported by RVCA and RAEN are proud to present their latest video “This is Alex”, a video portrait that pays tribute to the Californian longboarder/musician Alex Knost.
Hailing from Costa Mesa, California, Alex Knost certainly stands out of the crowd; a worthy heir to a surf culture that's made up of pioneers, and numerous creative artists. After having followed in the footsteps of his spiritual big brother, Joel Tudor, Alex became in turn one of the best longboarders in the world, paddling his way to the front of the scene, in a counter culture that we thought was drowning under the waves of an extremely lucrative economy- surf industry. Almost uncatchable, the man flits like a butterfly from one art to the next (from photography to video, board shapes to music) trying to, like he says "lose himself in anything he does, hoping to exceed the limits that society has set him".
A slightly tormented soul, maybe a bit too realistic for this world, although the two obviously go hand in hand, "This is Alex "is a total immersion in his everyday life, a celebration of raw counter culture: To give, understand, learn and influence, without waiting for anything in return, if not to perpetuate a style and a philosophy of life.

Two riders, one session, the same waves, the same conditions, two very different surfing styles. The elegance of the dance of these two surfers edited together in a video that brings the best waves of the final of the Salinas Longboard Festival 2013.
Antoine Delpero and Elliot Dudley where consistent and powerful in their approach, to these waves. Salinas gave it´s best, good size and a decent period so these gentlemen could unfold their bag of tricks, and show us how a wave is read and ridden under pressure.
Dos Riders, una sesión, las mismas olas, las mismas condiciones y dos estilos de surf muy diferentes. La elegancia del baile de estos dos surfistas editada, cara a cara en un video que rescata las mejores olas de la final del invitacional de Salinas 2013
Antoine Delpero y Elliot Dudley fueron consistentes en su surf, y enérgicos en su enfoque de ese tiempo que duró la final. Salinas volvió a mostrar su mejor cara, con un swell de buen tamaño y periodo más que decente para que estos caballeros pudieran desplegar su colección de trucos y demostrarnos cómo se surfea bajo presión.
The Style Evolution project pays homage to the immense treasure of surf movies over the past 50 years, many of which are sadly becoming rapidly unavailable due to new video formats. This short film is a collage of wipeouts from 19 surf movies from 1963 to 2005. Support the documentation of surfing through buying surf movies!
