When Erick Winkowski turned Pro this summer, it was natural to think “Wait… I thought he was already pro?” Winkowski liens toward the vintage; coverage of his tricks and board of choice (with a width well into the double digits) could have been ripped from an early issue of “Poweredge.” His hoho of a part in last year’s lo-fi Santa Cruz full-length, Right to Exist, fascinates fans further: strip away the modern bells and whistles and what you’re left with is purity, plain and simple.
