Freak. Alien. Innovator. Three things that are associated with Eric when his peers describe him and his natural ability. He’s one of the most eye catching, mind bending, futuristic surfers on the planet and when he’s captured in his element, everyone stops and takes notes. He can just as easily rip out a song on a guitar as quickly as he can spin a corked out back flip on an unsuspecting section on a wave. Fueled by his love of music, his keen eye in capturing amazing clips of himself and friends from a drone or flying high above the coping in any skate park around, Eric is truly a multi-talented human and someone who’s inspiring different people in different ways daily.
