Like a silent storm, Eric Dressen will arrive in the midst of a skate session and suddenly cause a commotion. In fact, he will fuck shit up. His wheels will smoke, the coping will burn and cheers will fill the atmosphere. The truth is that Eric expresses himself through his skateboard and he does it loudly, fast and in control. Off the board, he's a quiet, mild mannered guy that would rather not be placed at the center of attention.
Since the late seventies Eric has been rolling on his board and following the code of conduct by fellow peers and pro skaters from the Santa Monica and Venice region. He was just a pup when the Zboys were in the prime of their movement, but their antics truly inspired and shaped his explosive skating talent. Eric was featured in Skateboarder magazine at age ten, turned pro at the age of twelve and years later became the back-to-back World Street Champion in 1987 and 1988. He can skate any type of terrain with confidence; pools, pipes, streets, ditches, parks, ramps, you name it. Just give him the chance and you will be sitting down watching in awe.
Eric D. is currently working on a tattoo apprenticeship under Clay Decker at True Tattoo studio and riding for Santa Cruz Skateboards.
