Today marks the 50th birthday of the King Of The Skateparks, Eddie Fiola. To a lot of us Eddie was our first hero. To me he seemed like an enigma. It seemed like if you had a chance to see him ride Pipeline it would be a life changing event. I got to meet Eddie a few years back and after watching him still do the most stylish opposite tables over the box at Woodward West I mustered up the courage to go talk to one of my heroes. Eddie was friendly and down to talk about BMX past and present. So lets give it up for one of the best to ever do it!
