Final Episode of Eric Koston's Epicly Later'd Series Wraps Up the In-Depth Look Into the Star Skateboarder's Life


Though the Olympics commanded the attention of millions globally for the last two weeks, that didn’t slow down the Eric Koston Epicly Later’d Express. With the sixth episode up now on Vice’s website, we wrap up what has been an incredibly successful six-week run. As of two days ago, the series has racked up over two million total views globally, and has accumulated thousands of social media mentions, resulting in 3.5 million social media impressions – which makes Eric’s series the all-time record holder for Epicly Later’d views! That’s really saying something given the enormous popularity of the series.

We are extremely pleased with the success of the series, along with the buzz surrounding the Oakley EK Collection, which sparked a huge amount of interest not only for the beloved Frogskins, but also the Holbrook and Plaintiff. We’re pretty positive that you have seen the collection by now, but if you have yet to watch the entire Epicly Later’d series, please be sure to do so. The videos do an amazing job of documenting the life and career of one of the most influential skateboarders of all time. This may sound a bit exaggerated, but it’s the truth: Koston really is to skateboarding what Michael Jordan was and is to basketball and the NBA. He’s a genuine legend in the game, but he does not let that go to his head one bit. He’s truly a humble human being and it is such an honor having him on the Oakley Skateboarding team!

Get to know Eric by watching every episode of the series at Vice’s Epicly Later’d page.
