Darrell turned pro for Real in 2003. He's got a lanky and effortless style with massive pop on tricks like switch backside 180s and switch heelflips. He was riding for Vans and then switched to DC. He also left Real for a brief stint on the reformed Plan B. After Plan B, he joined up with Element. As far as I know he still rides for them, although he seems to have fallen in the vortex of disappearance that surrounds that company. Darrell did get a photo sequence in the 100th issue of the Skateboard Mag doing a cannonball to 5-0 down a handrail so maybe he's got some gas left in the tank. I hope so. I liked what he was doing back when he was on Real.
Props to the Mag for hitting 100.
