Erik was one of the most easy going and dedicated individuals I spent my summer with, filming and skating through the busy streets of downtown Toronto to the wondering back roads of rural Ontario. His ability on blades, knowledge of spots and willingness to explore have all come together to showcase his skating and style perfectly.
His stays at Woodward as a counselor over the past few years have given him an amazing combination skill set in both street and park which he can pick and choose for the right situation. And like most of us, Erik juggles his skating with full time work, school and his girlfriend Jessica.
As the days got colder and the deadline for completion drew nearer, Erik and I started what we called „pro Wednesday“. Basically taking Wednesdays off work for nearly a month to get in our last tricks before the snow fell and the editing began.
Thanks Erik, for the inspiration and memories!
