Meet a godfather of freestyle!


This is the authorised biography of Eric Hymans, original wild man of hot-dogging during the 70s. Son of a legendary ski pioneer, Eric won two Australian mogul championships after starting Falls Creek’s iconic Team Red with a bunch of talented athletes. This gang was instrumental to the explosion of freestyle skiing during the 80s. Together they established the Summit Masters and planted seeds of freedom to generations of outstanding skiers. 


Born to fly uncovers the circumstances that made game-changing performers. Plus the relationships that saw an enigmatic character refine his art and ultimately fall from grace. From skibum to number one to recluse, these are epic times at the forefront of extreme, along with the perils that exist. Laced with historical significance and a refreshing candour, this story holds the wisdom of a genuine freeride elder.


Featuring Eric's contemporaries Lynne Grosse, Steve Lee, Mark Steven, Marcus Lovett, Kent Dowding among others.


Written and produced by Peter 'pea ce' Corney
