Making a Video Part With Dylan Alito | Insight
The filmer/rider relationship is critical, and both Dylan Alito and Toni Kerkelä’s Insight parts were respectively filmed by a longtime friend. Here, Dylan is pictured in Helsinki, Finland with Toni, Zach Rawles, and Petrus Koskinen. The close dynamic between Toni and Petrus is similar to that of Zach and Dylan. Both excellent snowboarders themselves, Petrus and Zach have spent time on both sides of the lens, which adds to their intuitive ability to capture their friends’ riding. Photo: Teemu Heljo

Making a Video Part

Dylan fell off the bandwagon of trends perpetually driving snowboarding years ago. His attitude is a rarity within a culture obsessed with the appearance of not caring. Dylan doesn’t give a fuck. Not in the sense that it’s cool not to care—he just doesn’t put stake in what the industry thinks about him or his snowboarding.

If he did, he may have transplanted somewhere with a snowboard scene—somewhere with other pros and industry people—but instead he bought a house in Lakewood, Colorado, where he hangs out with his pit bull and crushes tan cans when he’s not on a rail mission down the road or on the other side of the world.

This episode provides a glimpse at Dylan’s life when he’s home: rolling around with his homies in Colorado.

The rowdy air that follows Dylan brings with it a general disregard for unnecessary rules, ensuring continuous amusement for anyone on board and aggravation for those standing in the way.

Dylan’s snowboarding is a direct reflection of his personality. It’s unconventional, sometimes reckless, and unapologetically on his terms.

“I came into the game pretty hot—just drunk and partying and making enemies. I think a lot of the older dudes didn’t like that. They were like, ‘Who is this little shit who thinks he can do whatever he wants?’ I think I’ve gained some respect back.” PHOTO: Teemu Heljo
