Bio

From relative unknown to dark horse to off axis rebel leader, E-Dubs is a certified slopestyle slayer. With a sleepy, unhurried style, Eric makes even the most technical tricks seem like a leisurely walk in the park. Case in point: Innsbruck, Austria. 2013. The 20th Anniversary Billabong Air & Style. With visibility at an all-time low and scaffolding at an all-time high, Eric dropped in switch amidst the snow storm and riffled off a SS Backside 1260 Mute, securing the win. Eric’s dominance began at the first ever Euro X in Tignes, France, where he stole Gold and never (except to spot a landing) looked back. With multiple podiums at the Dew Tour, the World Cup and more, Eric is bound for Sochi. This marks his third year as a member of the U.S. Slopestyle team.

Favorite Event to Watch in Sochi:

Bobsled

Favorite Music:

Classic rock gets me in a pretty good mood.

Other Hobbies:

Favorite GoPro Mount for Training:

Head Strap (Because you can turn the camera on and totally forget it's there).
