Blogger. Producer. Marketer. Filmer. World-Class Snowboarder.
The hats are endless for Torstein Horgmo, a master at every end of the current snowboard and cultural spectrum. Tor’s 2010/2011 season will go down as one of the best all-around in recent history, from the jaw-dropping ender part in Standard Films’ The Storming, to his Winter Dew Tour Championship title, to stomping the first-ever triple cork—and then re-writing the script once again with his first X Games Gold Medal in Big Air. Filming double-duty this season, get ready for much more Tor in both People’s Good Look and Standard Film’s TB20.
Never one to sit still, Torstein's recently began releasing his first of what we hope are many of his own beats and "BroStep" music production, available for free download on his SoundCloud Page.
Finally, stay up on all that the digital king has going on at his industry-leading blog and video site, Torstein.net.
