Dylan Hughes is one of the UK’s MVP’s when it comes to street skateboarding. Originating from the small town of Bridgend in Wales, where you would be hard pressed to find many good street spots, Dylan still managed to equip himself with some of the most technical feet the UK has ever seen. As well as amassing a large amount of magazine coverage, and even a few covers, he has also stacked a large backlog of footage and video parts. If his most recent video part in “Today Now”, released on Free Skate Mag, is anything to go by then Dylan shows absolutely no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
