Strangely, Eric didn’t take up competitive snowboarding until 2006. When you consider most pros have been competing since they could write their names on the entry forms, it’s refreshing to see a guy come through that hasn’t been educated at a snowboard school.
The top results soon followed, including victory on the Dew Tour and bronze at X Games Europe (both in 2012). In 2013 he edged out the McMorris’, Yadonos and Toots’ of the world to take the top spot at the Air & Style in Innsbruck. He crashed out hard in early 2014 which denied him a place at the Sochi Olympics, but he’s back with a vengeance in 2015 and looking to bag some more medals.
