ERIC DRESSEN TAKES US BACK TO 1989 FOR TIMELINE TALK
Get your giant, Zack Morris-style cell phone ready for the trip!
Eric Dressen has been in the skating game for a while. We have a post today about Nathan Ko’s 21st birthday. Dressen was already a well-known name in skating before Ko was even a concept, much less a living person. Way back in 1989, Dressen made a huge splash in Speed Freaks, a full-length video from Santa Cruz. If you are a skater of a certain age, you definitely remember Speed Freaks, and you probably remember Dressen’s part in it. If you don’t, though, now is the time to take a trip back in time for a history lesson.

Santa Cruz, as an old-school brand, is the perfect company for retro looks at skating. That’s what their series Timeline Talk is all about. Dressen is the focal point of the latest episode. Naturally, he talks about Speed Freaks, but he has so much more to say. After all, he’s been at this for over 30 years at this point. He’s a font of information, and lucky for us he’s down to share it.
