Matt B definitely falls into that “best dude” category. He doesn’t come by the park often, but when he does, it’s always a pleasure. His fakie and switch game is unmatched and he took an unthinkable backside 180 nosegrind the distance! Yeah, Matt!-TWS Skate Mag
In the final part of Ed's episode, he discusses the many highs and lows that Toy Machine has faced since he began the company. And when a leg injury sidelines Ed from skating, he and Deanna confront the possibility that he may not be able to stay on the path he's carved out for himself.- Vice
"In part five, we take a look at Ed’s life as an artist. From being coaxed out of hoarding his early paintings in Huntington Beach to confronting the homophobia of the 90s New York skate scene and finally finding success with his Teenage Smokers series, Ed’s art career has been defined in much the same way as his skate career"-VICE
"In part four, Ed finds himself out of work and in the depths of an uninspired era for skateboarding. But out of the dregs of the 90s came Ed's ambition to strike out on his own and found a scrappy company called Toy Machine. He ended up producing Welcome to Hell, the video that would cement his legacy. Check it out."- VICE
In part three of Ed's Epicly Later'd, Ed looks back what was arguably the peak of his skate career—when he dropped out of high school to conquer Europe in 1990, landing the covers of Thrasher and Transworld in the process. He also tells the story of how he met his wife, Deanna, and what led him to leave New Deal to start a new company with Mike Vallely.-VICE
