Great Post---Dressen is a decades in killer who sometimes doesn't get the early street love he deserves...an innovator to be sure...

First pro I ever met in my life while on a trip to cali in 88. It was him and Scott Oster on Venice Beach. Dude was super nice, I was hella little and intimidated. Pretty epic experice for a 12 year old from the midwest on his first trip to Cali.

Happy Birthday to the MURS! Lovin' the Heel Bruise shirt and the fact it comes in a small.

Happy Thanksgiving to all you Chrome Ballers out there!

SPRNTRL: Hope you have a great holiday!

Happy bday Murray.

HB x CBI is going to crush skulls!

Dressen in Speed Freaks was solid.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans. Who's going nuts on Black Friday?

had that crail wallride on my wall for years. i thought it was rad that he had a tg sticker on his board. also thought it was cool that he rode a teammate's board, too. thanks!

totally my era. i loved watching him grow from skinny street boardslide dude into burly slash-grind-on-everything destroyer. one of the all time greats.

Chops delivers, even on Thanksgiving. I, for one, am thankful to have come up in skating when Eric D was gracing the mags and vids of the day. It was always great to see what he was doing. I remember staring at that ditch method ad for hours... I couldn't understand how he got that high in a ditch.

20 years later he's still ripping it up. Eric, we live vicariously through you, brother. A true soldier. He's got 100% skateboarder inked on himself... damn straight.
