Speed, power and punk rock; Eric Dressen may have first appeared on the scene as a pre-teen pool rat in mid 70’s but it was during the second boom of the late 80s and then again in the 90s that he really made his mark. Pioneering the burgeoning field of street skating and still tearing up every transition in sight, he also clocked up a solid body of footage over the years and invented the salad grind along the way.
In 2015 – with a guest board just dropping for Z-Flex, a lengthy Epicly Later’d under his belt and a place on the Santa Cruz Veterans Division – Dressen’s history is intrinsically intertwined with that of skateboarding. Pay homage to one of the masters and enjoy our Eric Dressen Footage Feast.
