It was a heavy Friday morning hearing about the tragic and deeply saddening news of Dillon Ojo's accidental passing. Dillon's infectious positivity and personality will be missed most. Everything about Dillon's life was gold, his style and approach to living was untouchable.
And while we'll miss him like hell here on earth, heaven is lucky to have their newest star. There's nothing we can say or do to ease the pain of those closest to his greatness. But reflecting on all he shared with our tight community within snowboarding is helpful for now.
Share your love with friends and family. Dillon Ojo's impact will live forever.

“Saw this spot on our first day in Germany, across the street from the McDonald’s we were having lunch at. The build was pretty mellow because the landing was already packed up due the snow plow. The annoying thing was trying to get snow to stay on top of the ledge to build a kicker. It took me about three or four tries to land my first one, and a few more to clean it up. The tricky part was landing switch and instantly sliding across a three-lane street. It was kind of like the early days of street boarding when they wouldn’t put much snow down. To celebrate, we went back to the McDonald’s across the street for nuggets and a beer. I'm pretty juiced on how the photo turned out. I didn't know how crazy that kicker looked until now. ‘Taco’ (a.k.a. Cole Martin) killed it as always.” —Dillon Ojo
