Some may consider Eric Koston to be god-like on the skateboard, while others may not go that far, whatever the opinion, there is an absolute certainty that Koston was a child prodigy of skateboarding. At a tender age of 16, he faced a daunting choice of turning a professional skateboarder or leaving his first ever sponsor for another. Although he had acquired the skateboarding skills many would envy, Koston still faced the realities of the skateboard industry and politics, something he was not equipped to face at such a young age. This second installment of Epicly Later'd discusses the early days of his sponsorship with H-Street, and the story behind the graphics of his first ever pro skateboard deck.
