About Eric: Eric was just eight years old when he started testing skateboards for his Dad and ten when he was first sponsored. He pioneered a distinctly smooth skating style and headed the development of bowl-riding in California. Skating for the last thirty years, Eric knows a thing or two about the industry. Given his legendary status, Eric’s skateboarding career has been his primary focus, but he is also a professional tattoo artist and now tattoos almost every day.
It’s not often that you meet someone you truly admire and they end up being a really nice guy.
Signature style: Eric sports a textured side-part with a skin fade on the back and sides. Or a hat, but the stylish ‘do is always underneath.
