The Thrasher ‘Out There’ episodes provide a great insight into professional skateboarders lives, past and present. In their latest episode, Waylon Bone spends some time with Erik Ellington as he provides a very honest and positive interview getting nostalgic and reminiscing about the good old days with the Baker crew.
The episode starts with Ellington and his family having breakfast proceeding to then take a tour of Huntington Beach of some of some famous skate spots which appeared in the Baker videos. Ellington also revisits the house where the Piss Drunks formed with Jim Greco et al.
Erik also takes us through his pro shoe and board collections he has stored over the years, talks about sobriety and also unveils how an unfortunate altercation in a bar almost lead to him potentially spending a substantial time in jail. He talks of how that incident changed his outlook on life and how he now appreciates everything he has and is positive for the future.
