About Dakota

Dakota is your typical California local, spending his mornings on a surfboard and his days cruising on his skateboard, enjoying time on his motorcycle and shredding on his BMX bike. He has helped push BMX street riding forward with extremely difficult tricks, unique spot selection and originality. He rides in a powerful and versatile way. Dakota can get technical with grind combos as well as blast a quarterpipe or float huge 180s, 360s and 540s over a rail or stair-set. Although he's still slowed a little from knee surgeries, he claims to be feeling solid on his bike. He has two X Games bronze medals from seven X Games appearances.

  • Dakota has seven X Games appearances, with a best finish of bronze in 2012 and 2011. He placed 8th at the Dew Tour Street San Francisco 2013 and was also nominated for NORA Cup 2013 Street Rider of the Year.
