Professional skateboarding has no longer appeared as a rebel art form, a revolution beyond the streets of outcasts that is all about the hell ride and inherently in an anarchic stance the way pros did in the 90s and early 2000s.
Nowadays, skateboarding is about being sober, eating healthy, working out, and even becoming more corporate with contests and the Olympics.
But Dollin has maintained his fire and progressed into the man from hell as he dedicates himself to his generation's true skateboarding lifestyle and culture. His throwaway footage is gnarlier than most other skateboarders' best work.
Unfortunately, cancel culture is real, and many skate companies are afraid that they might get canceled. Independent trucks, for example, have changed their logo to avoid cancelation as their old logo featured a star design that some believed resembled too "Nazi-like," a symbol associated with racism and white supremacy.
While the company had always maintained that the logo was not intended to be racist, they ultimately decided to make a change to avoid any negative associations.
