Since her debut on Season 1 of Fantasy Factory Chanel West Coast has gone from your everyday skater girl working a 9-5 to becoming a super star on the rise! Since the age of 15 Chanel spent years of working odd jobs and struggling to make a career out of music & acting. What began as a dream is now quickly becoming reality. In 2008 she was introduced to Rob Dyrdek through mutual friends and Rob soon after asked her to join the Dyrdek enterprises family. Following her successful run on Fantasy Factory, Chanel joined Rob on the cast of the most recent MTV hit show Ridiculousness, and she is also the voice of the character "Flipz" on Rob Dyrdeks new animated series 'Wild Grinders' premiering on Nickelodeon TV in April. In addition to her TV career, Chanel's fierce skills on the mic, dynamic performance ability, and infectious personality is now turning heads from the biggest music execs, industry peers, and fans from around the world. She has spent much of the past year recording her debut album which features tracks from some of the music industry's top producers including collaborations with various multiplatinum artists. When not in the studio or filming at the Factory, Chanel is busy performing her music at clubs around the country.
Plain and simple, there is nothing conventional about Rob Dyrdek. He's a dreamer who isnít scared to take risks. He's got the gift of gab and a dangerous knack for persuasion.MTV viewers might know Dyrdek from his starring role in the reality series Rob and Big -- you know, the adoptive parent of Mini-Horse, the man who performs as alter-ego "Bobby Light" or the guy who tried to teach bulldog Meaty to skateboard. Yeah, Rob Dyrdek is that guy, but he's also a professional skateboarder who simply refuses to stop chasing glory and an entrepreneur with quite a knack for business.In his hometown of Kettering, Ohio, at the tender age of 12, Rob picked up a skateboard for the first time. Within a month, he won his first competition and became the youngest member of the G&S skateboard team.Forgoing his senior year of high school, Dyrdek turned professional at the age of 16 while simultaneously becoming one of the founding members of the legendary Ohio-based Alien Workshop team. A regular contender in skateboarding competitions and a staple of street skateboarding videos (he's also a co-founder of famed DC Video), Rob's legend grew fast.As an entrepreneur, he has contributed game changing shoe design concepts, developed private training facilities for pro boarders and launched companies that include Siler Trucks, Reflex Bearings and Rogue Status, a street wear line that he owns with former blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. He also has his own sunglasses company (Battle Eyewear), founded the Street League skateboarding league, developed the Wild Grinders cartoon and toy line (based on his childhood skate crew) and formed a charitable foundation to build skate plazas around the country so kids have a safe place to skate.While conceptualizing and building the 40,000 square-foot, award-winning Kettering Skate Plaza, as a legal place for street skaters to hone their skills, Rob Dyrdek wrote, financed, produced and starred in the feature film Street Dreams, due in May 2009. And, as you know, he starred opposite his friend and personal bodyguard Chris "Big Black" Boykin in three seasons of the hit MTV series Rob and Big.Not one to slow down, Rob continues to think big. With a goal to "mogul up," he's moved Dyrdek Enterprises into a 25,000-square-foot industrial -- and fully skate-able -- warehouse and office complex near downtown Los Angeles. That's where we'll see him in Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, a place to dream up ideas and bring them to life.So, despite his success, Rob Dyrdek won't be slowing down anytime soon. In fact, he's just getting started.
