Designed by iconic skaters Eric Dressen (Guest Board) and legendary Z-Flex Team Rider George Wilson, these decks are the latest edition to Z-Flex?s premium Master Crafted series. Available in two distinct shapes with Dressen-drawn tattoo style graphics, they were crafted with the help of legendary skateboard craftsman Paul Schmitt.
A second generation Z-Boy, who later went on to become the Z-Flex Team Manager, George Wilson embodies the spirit of the brand through his distinctive style and dedication to skating. Throughout his career, he has ridden and created a number of boards for Z-Flex, and his Master Crafted decks pay tribute to some of his previous designs, translated into a unique shape with modern functionality.
Eric was just eight years old when he started testing skateboards for his Dad, and aged ten when he was first sponsored. He pioneered a distinctly smooth style, and now heads the development of bowl-riding in California. Skating for the last thirty years, Eric knows a thing or two about the industry. His primary career has been as a pro skater, but he?s also a renowned tattoo artist, using his talents to design the graphics featured on these Master Crafted decks. Z-Flex are truly grateful to have such a legend produce a guest board for the Master Crafted program.
Eric and George shaped their decks during a visit to Paul Schmitt?s factory. Based in California, Paul Schmitt has been building skateboards for nearly three decades, and his creations are renowned for superior performance and quality. His expertise has earned him the respect of some of the best pro skaters in the world, and he has come to be regarded as a professor in skateboard design.
