Dylan Osborne, so Hot Right Now!

Words and photograph by Sydney Goldberg

Most 13-year-old boys are kicking around soccer balls or dreaming about girls. Not Dylan Osborne, he is showing up hesh skaters twice his age. His dirt biking parents built him a full-fledged skatepark in his basement! Osborne is straight out of Bloomington, Ind., home of the Hoosiers and skateboarding prodigies. He is the youngest member of the Rise Skateboard Shop family which has fostered Lee Bender, Kris Markovich, Steve Fauser, and Jeremiah Smith. In 2007, Dylan placed in the final 25 of Cartoon Network‘s national street skating competition “Toonami Klik Tour.” This kid is a diamond in the rough, and with the right shot expect him to give Sheckler a run for his money.

Catch Osborne in Rise’s shop video “Stolen Saddles,” premiering Dec. 10.
