Professional skater Rob Dyrdek took a second to talk about hip hop superstar Lil Wayne and Weezy's boarding abilities. Wayne's love for skateboarding has been well-documented, and Dyrdek says that the Young Money captain has gotten good for a guy who started late.
"I think it's pretty amazing, because a lot of rappers have gotten into skateboarding over the years, but this is like, he's so dedicated," Dyrdek said. "He goes to all the contests, flies out to street leagues ... he's friends with all the pros. He's really, really committed, which is strange, you know, but we love it. ... I just think it's interesting to us, you know? I think that the fact that he has embraced it so much, has embraced all the pros, embraced all of the events, every last aspect, he's really embedded himself in the sport in a pretty cool way."
"He's getting better," Dyrdek laughed. "I mean, you couldn't possibly start skating at 26 or 27, it's going to take you some time to get good, that's just the reality, but he is learning at a pretty remarkable rate, which we all love, because he will get so excited; like we all know the feeling of what it feels like to land a trick for the first time, and now we see that coming out of him, where he'll freak out! He understands that true feeling."
