ERIC SWENSON "Got Things Done"

By - Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

{image-1} Swenson, Stecyk, Fausto ERIC SWENSON R.I.P. August 4th, 1947- June 20th, 2011 “Ideas come a dime a dozen. People talk, but seldom act. Eric Swenson got things done.” –THRASHER We learned late yesterday that Eric Swenson committed suicide outside of a San Francisco police station Monday. Swenson’s mark on skateboarding is no small thing. He co-founded Independent Trucks in ’78, Spitfier Wheels along with High Speed Productions which publishes Thrasher, Slap and Juxtapoz mags. Many of us here at 12oz have grown up with the trucks, wheels, magazines and over-all culture he helped found, along with the sprains, scrapes and broken bones that followed. We’d like to say thank you for all of it.
