Skate legend Eric Koston has carved his path through life with a singular mantra: "Be Who You Are." While eminent for his incredible skateboarding skills, his pilgrimage is about much more than mastering the board.
Koston's rise to skateboarding stardom was swift. By the early 1990s, he was already a standout talent.
He made a name for himself with his fluid style, unmatched technical flip-ins and flip-outs, and exceptional ability to land tricks that seemed impossible such as the K-Grind.
While skateboarding remained his primary passion, Koston's creative spirit couldn't be contained within the confines of a skateboard deck.
As the years passed, he explored various avenues that allowed him to express himself beyond street skating.
He ventured into designing skate shoes, collaborating with corporate brands like Nike SB, and creating signature models that reflected his unique style and personality.
Koston's message to aspiring skateboarders and creatives is clear: follow your passions, be true to yourself, and let your creativity flow freely. Just as he mastered the art of skateboarding, he also mastered the art of living authentically.
