the same site has Rodney Mullen at 30 million and Rick Howard at 45 million, so not sure how accurate that is.  not saying they shouldn't be that rich, but i just don't see it.

Net Worth includes ownership in companies and whatnot, not just cash in the bank.  Rick Howard is part owner in Crailtap, which is pretty bigtime.  And Rodney and Daewon started Almost, on top of all the royalties he's had from video games he's appeared in.  I can imagine both those dudes being pretty well off.

Quote
Los Angeles, CA ? April 17, 2012 ? 20 year skateboarding veteran, television star and entrepreneur, Rob Dyrdek announced today that he has acquired DNA Distribution which includes skateboarding brands Alien Workshop, Habitat and Reflex, from Burton.
The combination of Dyrdek?s brand loyalty and financial strength, with the unparalleled design and quality of DNA?s skateboarding products, will enhance the brands ability to participate more aggressively in the growing skateboard industry.
Confirming the previous purchase buzz, Dyrdek has been in discussion with Burton and DNA Distribution throughout the last year. ?It?s hard to put into words what an amazing opportunity this is for me. I am extremely proud to now own the company that first sponsored me 20 years ago,? stated Dyrdek, President of Dyrdek Enterprises. ?DNA has truly amazing brands that have incredible growth potential, and I look forward to helping guide these brands over the next 20 years.?
?It?s been an honor to call DNA part of the Burton family for the past four years,? stated Jake Burton, Founder and CEO of Burton Snowboards. ?And as we look to the future, I have no doubt that DNA is in extremely good hands given Rob?s history with the brands and the sport. On behalf of everyone at Burton, we wish them all the best.?
?We look forward for what?s to come with Rob and DNA,? said Chris Carter, General Manager and Co-Founder of DNA. ?Rob has shown his dedication for the past 20 years and we are excited to continue to build the brands.? Carter will continue to oversee DNA Distribution in Dayton, Ohio, while Dyrdek will consult directly on all marketing and creative from his Los Angeles based office.
In conjunction with the purchase announcement, ?Rob Dyrdek?s Fantasy Factory? will wrap up its fifth season on Monday April 23rd, 2012 at 10/9c on MTV with a finale episode featuring a comedic look at Rob purchasing the Alien Workshop and finding out that he in fact, actually has real alien DNA.
About Rob Dyrdek/Dyrdek Enterprises Inc.: Rob Dyrdek is a professional skateboarder, entrepreneur and television star based in Los Angeles. In 1999, Rob founded his privately held company Dyrdek Enterprises Inc. which currently holds multiple companies, entertainment brands and a non-profit organization known as the Rob Dyrdek Foundation, that seeks to build safe and legal skate plazas in communities around the world. Rob is known for his MTV television shows ?Rob & Big,? ?Rob Dyrdek?s Fantasy Factory,? and ?Ridiculousness.? He also has an animated series ?Wild Grinders,? based off of his childhood skate crew, on Nicktoons. In 2010, Rob created the first professional street skateboarding property, Street League Skateboarding? that is televised on ESPN. Other Dyrdek Enterprises key holdings include IVI Vision, Rogue Status, Loud Mouth Burritos, Ditl and ISX technology. For more information, visit www.dyrdek.com.

Did you read that recent Dylan interview someone posted?  That sounds pretty unlikely with the way both Dylan said in that interview and Dill said on the Fos radio show about the direction AWS is trying to go.  It sounds like they're trying to streamline it to just skating.  It would be pretty awesome if that's the case.

"Reflex was originally founded back in 1998 and is the manufacturer of high performance skateboard bearings, trucks and accessories. Reflex is produced through DNA Distribution, the makers of Alien Workshop & Habitat Skateboards, and over the years has sponsored such legendary skaters as Kareem Campbell, Guy Mariano, Josh Kalis, Danny Way, Colin McKay and Rob Dyrdek amongst others."

No mention of habitat footwear, eh?  Does that stay with Burton, get nixed or just get forgotten in a press release that's already too long?

But wasn't that direction made when it was under Burton? I didn't heard the radio interview with Dill but in teh Dylan interview, it seems like he just found out that Rob bought DNA. I just wonder if Rob will somehow work with Berra somehow. Imagine if Berra got creative control of something in DNA. I wonder if Dylan's shit talking would eventually backfire on him. Anyways...I am just talk shit out my ass.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd think that Dyrdek's opinion would weigh heavily as to who is on and off the team since he's been around forever.  Dyrdek would have had to sign off of Berra getting kicked off AWS.  Maybe we're both talking out our ass.

Berra's booted from the Workshop because he clearly does not skateboard whatsover... sure... but what about Dyrdek?  I was flipping channels the other night and came across "Fantasy Factory" thinking how much of a shame it is there's that beauty park right there and they've got "Big Black" dressed in a penis costume to drive off in some penis car.  Dunno what the hell that was about.  Why not have people visit and do more skating cameo's?  I'd be happy just to see Dyrdek do like a kickflip and a lipslide in each episode, it should be mandatory in the contract, there's at least two or three new skate tricks in each episode, no matter how basic...  really....  I have total respect for Dyrdek through the years, understand he does run businesses and what not, as does Berra, but he could easily appease the true skating masses by just throwing in a go to trick every now and again...  I remember him doing the tre-double flip after the game of skate vs. koston, I'd love to see him pull that over a hip or something, and he obviously could...  Either produce some consistent skate footage, basic or not, or drop yourself from the pro team.

Fuck yeah, so I guess Berra is not coming back. Rob is tight, and to give a control of a team to Dill and AVE, this couldnt be any better.

I think Rodney gets royalties whenever someone does a flip trick on flat.
