Throughout the 1990s Eric Koston’s name was instrumental in the evolution and growth of skateboarding. He had a stack of gold-plated video parts, the first of which was a 7-minute section in H Street’s ‘Next’ that sent shockwaves through the skateboarding world. He won more than a handful of X-Games gold medals and did for street skating what Tony Hawk did for vert. And, like Hawk, his influence has gone far beyond just his skating.
He co-owns Fourstar Clothing and the skatepark “The Philo-Thai Centre”, as well as co-founding the skatepark and multimedia platform website The Berrics (www.theberrics.com).
