Lucky 7 – Eric J Eckert
This week’s Lucky 7 goes to Eric J Eckert.
1. Age / how long have you been skating?
31, around 9 years (which makes my trick list seem even more pathetic)
2. Favorite local skater(s)?
Cory Foster, Lucas Nathenson, Matt Rief, Joe Hamilton, Dan Moran, Kyle Linder, John Pinning, Steve Andel, Mark Bussey, Richard Tolson, Mark Nickel, Justin Splain, Ben Nevius, Dusty Rue, Fuzzy Head, Matt Ratliff, Phil Burcher
There are tons more, but you get the point.
3. Favorite spot/park/object to skate?
Favorite spot is probably the Elk’s parking block or Beaver Banks in York
Favorite park – A&R then, LaFayette Colorado now
Miniramps all day. The shorter the better.
4. Favorite season of Family Guy, and favorite quote from that season?
The first season. It was original and funny. Now it’s just political and stupid.
5. If both of your daughter’s names were secretly acronyms, what would the full versions be?
HAE – Hey All Everybody
ZBE – Zombie Baby Eats (brains)
6. Have you been more scared filming Cory Foster trying a trick or jumping off a bridge/cliff?
Filming Cory try the death drop for Havoc vol.2 was scarier. I was just waiting for him to catch his front foot and go face-first to the pavement.
7. What is your favorite photo you’ve ever taken and explain why?
This water drop photo is my favorite because I shot it with a $200 point and shoot camera in my kitchen sink and I hardly photoshopped it at all. Also, it was used for a book cover by someone, so that was rad too.
