5 with 5’s: Professional Skateboarder Eric Bork

5ones: What have you been up to lately and what are your future plans?

Eric Bork: Lately, I have been working at OGIO. I manage the skate program as well as our Key accounts. I work with accounts anywhere from Active to Best Buy.

5s: Describe a daily routine in the life of Mr. Eric Bork?

EB: Daily routine – At work by 8:30 and I get home between 6 and 10pm. When I get home early, I work on my book. I want to take writing to a higher level than I ever was able to take my skateboarding. The only problem with skateboarding, was that when you get older, it fades, whereas, the older you get with writing, the more you learn and the better you get at it.

5s: What gets you super pumped to go out and skate?

EB: These days, I get pumped to skate when I’m in the mood to bomb hills and play skate.

5s: What is the hardest single trick or most memorable trick (hammer) that you are most proud of to this day? (put most effort into)

EB: 26 stair crooked grind in bakersfield. Built the 20 foot flat bar that is now in the Berrics and crooked it 20 times for 2 weeks before.

5s: Advice to kids trying to get themselves into the industry?

EB: If you live true to your beliefs, know where your talents lie and use those talents for other people’s benefit as well as your own, you’ll stand out and enjoy what you do no matter what industry you are in.

    So many nasty tricks up Bork’s sleeve!
    What’s that spot at 1:44? I’m seeing it everywhere.
