Name: Erik Foster Burrow
Hometown: Toronto, Canada
Sponsors: Remz, Shop-Task, Kevin Chow
Favorite skate event: BCSD,
Current set-up: Siza 8 Remz HR1.1 with red souls, backslides and buckles. Ground Control Featherlite frames and whatever random wheels I can get my hands on.
Best rolling edit you have seen in 2010 so far: Vibralux Snapback Promo,
Good advice you’ve been given: Learn to skate backwards both ways, Being good at mini ramp will let you skate forever, Skate fast, Use hockey laces in Remz, Always use a rub brick before you wax a ledge,
Bad habit: Rollerblading, Living off my credit card,
Worst injury so far: Broken Front Teeth, Broken Elbow, Intense cramping in my calf from back flipping off of a roof
One thing that makes you really angry: People who can’t skate backwards, People who freak out when they see flat rails, Not being able to skate fast enough, Skateboarders who wear pads, Skate plaza skateparks, People who claim they are hurt when they are clearly just embarrassed, People who say they are too old to skate when other people who are 30+ seem to be in their prime.
Reasons to smile: Sushi, Free skate parts, Woodward, Bike Riding, Flip Video, Jessica, Lilo, Tony
Your favorite skater from back in the day: Stuart Campbell
Skater of the year so far: Jeff Stockwell or Tim Kelly
