Eric Dressen

By VICE Staff

Epicly Later'd steps out of its 90s comfort zone with a skater who's been pro for five decades. Yes, five decades. Turning pro in 1978 at the age of 13, and then going on to become a pioneer of street skating, Eric Dressen has had a very well-rounded career. He has witnessed firsthand the rise and fall of skateboarding three times, and each time affected Eric in a different way. These days, Eric skates for Santa Cruz and tattoos full time at Will Rise in Hollywood. In part one of the series, we hear about an era in skating when most of our viewers weren't even a sperm in their dads' balls, and kick-turning was considered a trick. Enjoy!
