Alien Workshop – While he was twelve years old, after refining his craft for only a year or so, Rob was awarded a sponsorship from a skateboarding company that Blender worked with; his dream of becoming a big-time skateboarder had begun to come true.

After a few years, Rob and Blender branched from their sponsors and started their own company, Alien Workshop. At 16, Rob knew it was time to devote himself entirely to his goals.

To that end, he dropped out of high school and moved to Southern California to pursue his skating career. Later on, Rob would obtain ownership of Alien Workshop, increasing his income.

DC Shoes – After arriving in California, Rob was commissioned to ride for the company Droors Clothing, the precursor company to DC Shoes.

Rob was said to earn $60,000 per episode.

Rob Dyrdek Foundation – Dyrdek founded his self-named foundation in 2003. When it was prudent, he oversaw a merger between the foundation with the SLS Foundation.

The organization aims to build legal skate parks for skateboarders in their communities. This cause is close to Dyrdek because of the ties he has with being a professional skateboarder.

Practicing this sport is hard for most people because street skating is illegal in most communities and these communities often do not have legal skate parks available.

Dyrdek believes that “the skate plaza is essential to the future of skateboarding.”

Race Horse Owner – In an episode of Fantasy Factory, Dyrdek managed to jockey a race horse for his buddy Joe Ciaglia Jr. This went so well that Rob decided to take a shot at performing as a race horse owner.

He also built a music studio inside for his Pfaff. During the first season of Fantasy Factory, Rob opened his first SafeSpot SkateSpot, one of his signature parks.
