Brooklyn Board Collector
January 21, 2014
“I collect because it gives me the stoke as if I was skating.” Brooklyn based vintage skateboard collector, Eric Pinto, has turned his house into a literal skate museum. Spanning every wall and tucked into every corner of his apartment are over 300 super rare boards—golden-era Powell-Peralta, Foundation, World Industries, the list goes on. Which says a lot considering most people in New York can scarcely afford rent on a shoebox of an apartment, barely room enough to fit a tiny twin bed and a handful of clothes if they’re lucky. Take a look at his collection and hear how he hunts for his treasures. This right here is passion.
