How Did Rob Dyrdek Become Rich?
Rob Dyrdek was born on June 28, 1974 to Gene and Patty Dyrdek. His family lived in Kettering, Ohio at a time and that’s was the place where the future famous skateboarder started his path to fame and wealth.
We can divide Rob Dyrdek career into 3 different categories:
- His young years when he used to dream about skateboarding career and achieving this dream later on
- His 30s when he became famous after starring in several shows
- Rob’s business ventures in his 30s and 40s
Rob Dyrdek got his first money when he signed for a skateboarding company after he received a skate from famous Neil Blender, but the real cash he got only after moving to California and signing for Droors Clothing (later transformed to DC Shoes) in 1995. This sponsorship lasted up to 2016. Other skate and skateboarding-related sponsorships included Silver Trucks, EA Skate and Monster Energy.
2000s were the time when Rob Dyrdek started to be known not only due to his skateboarding career but as a TV-personality as well (although it was somewhat connected to his professional career). From 2006 to 2008 he starred in MTV reality show called ‘Rob & Big‘ which focused on a life of a professional skateboarder and producer (Rob) and his best friend (Christopher “Big Black” Boykin). For each episode he received $60 000.
‘Rob & Big‘ was a stunning success and in 2009 it was followed-up by ‘Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory‘. This time the show was about Rob’s warehouse where he runs his businesses. It was more successful than its predecessor, totaling in 7 seasons with the latest aired in March of 2014. In terms of money, ‘Fantasy Factory‘ was a level-up for Dyrdek, as it brought to him $100 000 per one episode. At the same time he appeared in a games like Skate and Skate 2, but the amount of salary Rob got from this is unknown.
His movie career started in 2008 when Dyrdek appeared in a movie ‘Righteous Kill’ although his role was nothing of serious. But seeing the prospect of making money out of movies, Dyrdek started producing films of his own. In 2009 he produced ‘Street Dreams‘ where he appeared as one of the main characters. But in reality, the movie was too far from being good and total box office was a little over $80 000. The idea of producing movies was put on a halt.
On the other hand, producing shows for TV did make some good money. From a period of 2011-2018 Rob Dyrdek produced ‘Ridiculousness‘ (the most popular episode features Sara Jean), ‘The Dude Perfect Show‘, ‘Crashletes‘, ‘Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life‘, ‘Snack-Off‘ and ‘Amazingness‘. The latest one featured him as a host.
His business career started in late 90s when he tried to launch various skateboard-related companies using money he was earning with DR Shoes. But the businesses he had started were short-0lived and didn’t bring in serious cash.
Success in this field came to him in late 2000s after launch of an animated series ‘Wild Grinders‘ for the Nickelodeon network in 2009 and Street League Skateboarding in 2010. The last one became a major international competitive series in professional skateboarding with prizes of over $1 million. This is one of the most successful Dyrdek’s ventures to this very day.
Nowadays Rob Dyrdek is an owner of Dyrdek Machine (a business incubator), Beach Whiskey, Stance and Beatbox Beverages. He is also a co-founder of Black Feather Whiskey and Ultracast. In 2016 he even invested in the UFC.
