Dan Liedahl


When you look at the limited vertical and small-scale parks the riders have to work with, it’s amazing the talent that Midwest hotspots like Hyland Hills and Trollhaugen produce. But there’s just no denying the abilities of a Minnesota-bred rider like Dan Liedahl. He’s a hungry, hardworking shredder always eager for the next opportunity to slay. His Videograss parts make clear he’s got street and rail-riding on lock and as he moves steadily into more park and powder terrain, he continues to step it up.
