Eric Koston is enjoying his other pursuits away from the life of skateboarding.

At 37 years old, skateboarding legend Eric Koston has achieved more than most kids in a skate park could dream of. 

The Thailand native and revolutionary high-flyer has been featured in the "Tony Hawk" video game series, co-owns Fourstar Clothing and is a multiple-time X-Games champion.
