Eric Willett was born and raised a stones throw away from Breckenridge resort, Colorado – home to one of the world’s best terrain parks. He started shredding at a young age and shortly after was creating sizeable ripples on the competition circuit.
He was eventually picked up by Omatic snowboards – another brand who are sadly no longer with us. In recent years Willett has podiumed at the Dew Tour, won the European X Games and most recently, taken the win at the prestigious Air & Style in Innsbruck, and still has no proper board sponsor. Maybe he’s just too nice a dude?
