In the year 1974, on June 28, Robert 'Rob' Stanley Dyrdek was born in Kettering, Ohio, USA. He is the son of Gene and Patty Dyrdek and has one sibling, Denise Dyrdek. Rob's early years exposed his love for skateboarding and showed that he was focused on becoming a pro skateboarder. When he was a high school student at Fairmont High School in Kettering, he would frequently sit and think about the different skateboarding tricks, but at the end of the 11th grade, he made a big decision and changed his life as he dropped out of high school and moved to California to be the skating mecca of the United States.

Rob Dyrdek has been engaged in Disneyland to his Filipino-American model girlfriend Bryana Noelle Flores and got married in the year 2016. The couple has two children, Kodah Dash Dyrdek and Nala Ryan Dyrdek, their son and daughter, respectively.

Rob Dyrdek's career started when he was 12 and he decided to join professional skateboarding. In the same year, he became the youngest member of the ultra-popular G&S Skateboarding Team. He became a skateboarder at the age of 16, and at the same time, he got his first sponsorship deal with the new and local brand, Alien Workshop. During his skating in California, he wore the brand to represent the country.

 At this time, he was also focused on his goal to become a professional skateboarder as he showcased his skills at this big competition to try and get his name on the line. During that time, Rob had his most successful sponsorship deals with skate shoes with the brand DC; at that time, this company was called Doors Clothing. Rob tried to design shoes for them to try and supply comfortable shoes for the skaters. After his success, his first shoe was released and was called the Dyrdek 1. After this success, Rob designed more shoes for the DC Company.

After his comeback in his skating career, Rob decided to change his image as he realized that if he needed to gain more attention to himself, he needed to dress and act like a rapper rather than a skater. At that time, DC was also looking to release their first-ever skate film, and they invited Rob to be in it. This became the biggest break in his career when he got his own reality TV show, 'Rob and Big.' 

This show starred Rob and his best friend and bodyguard Christopher Boykin, or 'Big Black.' The comedy show has become a big hit with viewers and has a chance to have a second season.
