Fans of in depth conversations with Jason Dill have been in luck the last couple of weeks – following on from his Bobshirt interview, he sits down here on The Nine Club episode 83 for a whopping two and a half hours of in depth Dill-discussion. From hanging out in sketchy ‘Kids of the Black Hole‘ style houses in Huntington Beach through discovering skateboarding, his various sponsors, a long stint with Alien Workshop and finally the inception of Fucking Awesome and Hockey alongside partner in crime Anthony Van Engelen, Dill covers way more ground than you’d imagine anyone who partied that hard to remember.
A few lesser told stories surface along the way including getting the boot from 101 Skateboards, snapping his ACL at 17 and being told he’d never skate again, Fred Gall trying to sell him ‘shrooms and plenty more and, with Dill being a born storyteller, you’ll probably get through more than one cup of coffee whilst watching this one. It also feels as if The Nine Club crew are improving as interviewers, which probably helps to explain why the last few episodes have been so good!
He also puts to film what will probably go down as the best Rodney Mullen impression of all time, which this is worth watching for alone…
“This week we’ve got Jason Dill on the show discussing growing up in Huntington Beach CA, seeing skateboarding for the first time at 8 years old, his first sponsor House of Kasai, skating for Blockhead then getting on Black Label, dropping out of high school, 101 days, filming for Snuff and 20 Shot Sequence, getting kicked off 101, opening a mag and reading that he was now on Alien Workshop, partying and drugs, starting Fucking Awesome and much more!”
