Unless you’ve been living in a sewer with CHUD for the past few decades, you already know that Ed Templeton is a man who wears many hats—pro skateboarder, company owner, team manager, artist, photographer, husband and many more. Ed started skateboarding in 1985, and turned pro in 1990. After he married his life partner Deanna in 1991, Ed went on to start Toy Machine and an art career in 1993 and worked hard as hell to launch those and all other aspects of his life to stellar heights. Ed is one of very few pro skaters who loves doing interviews, so when you shove a tape recorder in front of him, you know it’s going to be epic. Read it all and peep the photos on the Emerica site.
