Before the triple corks, the Olympic ambitions and the Horgasms, Torstein Horgmo was just another talented up-and-coming Scandi ripper. Sponsorship with DC and a string of impressive contest results had earned him the chance to film with Standard Films, but he could quite easily have ended up as another contest kid putting out the occasional average movie part.
Instead, almost by accident, Torstein came up with the idea of including a full top-to-bottom park run in his part – something that hadn’t really been done before. Released in its entirety without sound online, the section became a Youtube sensation and quickly overshadowed the actual movie part itself.
We’ve included it in its entirety here rather than the part (the original of which isn’t available online, although you can see it remixed below) because we think it’s more dramatic and more worthy.
It helps that his solid, afterbang-heavy steeze was pretty much the epitome of park rat style at the time, but it’s more the fact that everything in here – even the tricks that start out looking sketchy – is stomped absolutely perfectly. And he just keeps on going!
