Erik Bailey has been a staple in our industry for a long time, countless sections, pro skates, wheels, you name it, he has been there and done it. Erik lives what it is to be a rollerblader to the fullest, but what happens when its the end of the day and the skates come off?
Have you ever wondered what he is like, his hobbies, etc? Well, luckily you can read for your self directly from Erik in Boise, and from some people that have gotten to know Erik. All the photos were taken by Erik unless otherwise noted.
- “when we were in barcelona I had the pleasure of meeting Erik’s dad, Pete. After a few drinks and getting to know him a lil’ better. I found out he’s just like Bailes, really chill, down to earth, w/ a good head on his shoulders. He also said something about Erik that I’ll never forget, he called him “Erik Dean…the fartin machine!’ Definitely lives up to his name” Victor Arias
- Bailey is pretty much the man. He can true fishbrain like no other, grill a mean steak, and shotgun bite a fresh beer can on the streets of barcelona. You can either watch the skate video called “Bailey and friends”(more commonly as Shred Til You’re Dead) or anxiously wait till 4life drops in October to further instate my claims, just incase you have no idea what’s going on in the blade world and didn’t already know what I just told you.

“Right now I’m getting ready to embark on the annual Valo Europe tour. It’s basically wrapping up the filming for the upcoming Valo 4 Life. I’m also nursing another ankle injury right now and Im hoping it heals quick and doesn’t give me much trouble on the road. I’m excited to see some old friends, its gonna be a really good tour either way.
Before I hurt myself I had been wrapping up filming for the shock video. Thanks Erik Bill for helping me film that. Off of the wheels I have been working on a motorcycle project. I picked up a Triumph t100 project I am trying to rebuild. I just started to strip it and pulled the motor. I will get some photos when its finished.” Erik Bailey
