Last winter, Bode Merrill selected four riders to travel with him for the season to film for Reckless Abandon, a collaboration between Bode and filmmaker, Jon Ray. Erik Leon, who already possesses a timeless style despite the fact that he’s just barely over the legal drinking age, was one of the four tapped to collect footage in a crew that quickly coalesced, gaining momentum as the snow continued to fall. Throughout the winter, Erik’s style shone, whether sending up roots of light Japow or performing mind- and limb-bending grabs in the streets; succinctly, this SoCal native’s easy riding abilities know no boundaries of terrain and regardless what he’s ripping, Erik’s riding, though very technically savvy, is easy on the eyes. Cameo by Will Jackways. Filmed and edited by Jon Ray.
