Dillon Ojo


With a skater’s eye for creativity and a laidback approach to technical rail riding, Montreal’s Dillon Ojo has emerged as one of the most promising young talents from the hotbed of the Eastern Canada street scene. Exceptional riding in Déjà Vu and Snowboarder’s Foreword put Dillon on the path to extended roadtripping and filming with a rotating crew of young, hungry ams, keeping his skills razor sharp as he makes the inevitable transition from ambitious amateur to full-on pro.

WHAT IS YOU FAVORITE VANS SHOE?

Sk8-Hi in white

WHAT’S YOUR SET UP?

WHAT’S THE BEST TRIP YOU’VE EVER BEEN ON?

The Dragon Alliance #weareframeless tour. We drove from Cali, to Colorado, then to Jackson Hole and ended in Oregon. It was by far my favorite snowboard trip of all time because I got to spend a month with some of my real good friends and It was my first time ever doing a van tour anywhere. Twisted teas were for sure the highlight of the van life.

FAVORITE VANS RIDER?

Snowboard: Jake Kuzyk
Skateboard: Gilbert Crockett

WHAT TRICK CAN’T YOU DO THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD?

I can do every trick in the book, haha! No on a real note I can’t do switch frontside 5-0 without crushing my shins.

WHAT’S THE WORST THING THAT’S EVER HAPPENED TO YOU?

When I was 14 years old I was starting to snowboard in the park and taco'd a box and split my spleen. I was in the hospital for about 2 weeks and I wasn't allowed to eat anything the whole time I was there. I love food with a passion so it was a hard one.

WHAT ARE SOME INTERESTS/HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF SNOWBOARDING?

Skatboarding and soccer. I just started filming skatboarding last summer. Call of Duty – “get at me if you think you got what it takes". Biking. Food.

LAST GOOD BOOK YOU READ?

I don't read books even though I should, but the last one I remember reading was in high school and it was The Outsiders.
