When the Next New Wave's Dalton Dern moved from Florida to Southern California, he brought a diverse bag of tricks. This is a guy who skates everything and pushes himself to learn, refusing to be pigeonholed: from backside lipsliding umpteen-stair rails to switch frontside airs in bowls; everything in between is a delightful surprise. Dalton's Next New Wave part embraces the joy of learning, keeping skateboarding fresh and refreshing. The Next New Wave is diverse; Dalton defies expectations.
