Men's Health Australia's 2015 Man of the Year, Damien Rider came to South Florida and met with The Mind Of Rey Rey.
I had the honor of spending a day with Damien, his friend Dan Osper, and local South Florida skateboarder and surfer Dillon Stokes for a photoshoot, and witnessed their skating skills at a local skate park in Hollywood, FL. After overcoming a traumatic childhood, there isn't much Damien has not done. He is a skater, paddleboarder, winner of 3 world records in extreme sports and currently going for a 4th, and he is the Founder of Rider Cosmeceuticals, Paddle Against Child Abuse (PACA) and The Damien Rider Foundation. Damien's legendary status has been felt throughout the world in the news, social media, magazines, and documentaries for not only his athletic accomplishments, but also for his fight towards Child Abuse Awareness, and his ability to inspire and challenge others to rise above adversity. He is currently in the process of creating a documentary (which I was privileged to get a sneak peek of), as well as working on several other projects. Please visit The Man, The Myth, Damien Rider for more information on his projects at: theriderfoundation.com. Some of the photography taken on that day can be seen in the gallery below, the rest will be published soon.
