Dude, Identify This Dude

Sorry for the crappy picture quality — I nearly got into an accident taking it. Who is this mystery skateboarder gracing this Dodgers billboard?

UPDATE: Thanks to Josh S. for pointing out it's not Rob Dyrdek:

UPDATE: Thanks to Julie Hibbard for pointing out the Clout Malibu connection:

Hair's too long to be Tony Hawk. A Google search for "skateboarder on Dodger billboard" takes me right back here.

Rob Dyrdek is getting a billboard too, but that's not it.

And where is his safety gear!? If you are going to put up a billboard that looks like a mid-90's Trapper-Keeper, you have to have the appropriate pads and helmet.

In other Dosgers/celebrity news, the Hollywood Stars softball game lineup is out.

Yikes.

Two questions:
-Why so many football players?
-Does James Denton spend his off-time traveling around the country looking for celebrity softball games to play in?

Ugh. "Dodgers". Stupid typo.

BTW, for what it's worth, my brother-in-law co-wrote that song, "My Town."

No royalties checks in the mail though.

The problem is there are so many "pro skateboarders" that it could be anyone. Just ask your resident 13 year-old. I'm sure he'll know.

I think it's probably one of the billboards that is part of the deal the Dodgers have made with "Clout" Surf/Skate shop.

I think it might be Tony Alva. He's from Venice Beach and has dreads...

If you'd clean your windshield every once in a while, Orel, we'd get a better look at the dread-locked skater.

I agree. It's probably Alva, but he's kind of old to reach the edgy teen market. Could it be that the Dodgers are marketing to adults?

My wipers don't reach that far!
