When we visualized the Eric Dressen Limited Edition, Jim Muir took the opportunity to create 12 different custom spray color ways to choose from. After Eric picked his favorite custom spray, we screened all of the one-offs with the his Limited run. We are now releasing 10 one of a kind signed 1/1 decks priced at $250.00 each on Thursday, December 8th, at 12:00 noon PST. Each unique deck is a classic and one of a kind!
On Thursday, March 10th, 2016 at 12:00 noon Pacific Standard Time, we will be releasing 120 custom sprayed, silkscreened, signed & numbered Eric Dressen boards. The latest Jim Muir custom spray color way is a transparent ghost black with a metallic gun metal grey fade and a silkscreen of Eric’s first Dogtown graphic drawn by Kevin Ancell. The price for this release is $150.00 plus shipping. First come, first served with a one board per customer limit. We ship worldwide.
We also asked Chuck Katz (Dogtown and Thrasher Magazine photographer) to pull his favorite photo of Eric Dressen from his archives for a limited run of 30 prints signed by Chuck and Eric Dressen 8.5” X 11” prints. Printed on Exhibition Fiber Paper, this photograph is from the Venice Pavilion circa 1987. It really tells a story of the energy and progression that was going down at such a historic time and place in skateboard history. The print will release Thursday, March 10th at 12 Noon PST.
Jim Muir on Eric Dressen
Eric Dressen was the first super grom kid that I ever saw in 1977. At ten years of age he was sponsored by Logan Earth Ski. I would see him at contests and at the first ever skatepark built, Carlsbad Skatepark. The first time he really impressed me was at the 1977 opening of Skateboard World Skatepark in Torrance, CA. In those days builders were still trying to figure out how to make functional parks and any skatepark opening was a huge deal and event. Every sponsored pro from the time period was there. You can only imagine the snake session going on in that shitty half pipe.
I am standing there and I see this 3’6” kid in the mix. Eric was holding his own, getting his runs and most of all he was ripping! From 1978 to 1980 he rode for Alva Skateboards. Along came 1980 and skateboarding's popularity dropped like a bad habit. Fast forward to the mid-80’s where I was running Dogtown again. We had a small team of local amateurs and we were hitting all of the contests as skateboarding was starting to boom again. Kelly Jackson, Aaron Murray, and Scott Oster were telling me they had been skating with Eric and we should consider sponsoring him.
When I saw him skate again there was nothing to consider. I immediately added him to the team. We continued hitting up the amateur skate scene as street skating started to gain popularity. I was privileged to watch Eric along with Natas, Gonz, and Jesse Martinez establish a new genre of skateboarding in the streets from where skateboarding originated. But Eric is not just a street skater. He kills it in Pools, Parks, Ramps or any terrain to this day.

It’s hard for kids to understand that there was a time when skateboarding wasn’t on cereal boxes and there were no X Games or anything like that. There weren’t even cameras around. People were just trying things on their own and some of it was unbelievable. I’ve been fortunate to have had a lot of friends that were skateboarders. Having Lance Mountain draw one of the first Suicidal shirts was huge. Punk rockers said we weren’t punk and metal people said we weren’t metal, but Suicidal kind of became a soundtrack for a lot of skaters. They were the first people to get into the band. When we got asked to do the cover, kinda the first not-pro skateboarder to be on it, it was a huge honor. It was definitely a highlight and I’m very proud of it. —Mike Muir
