Horgasm a Love Story is a little short film of Tortein Horgmo and his career as a professional snowboarder. Tortein Horgmo is from Norway and is 5’8″. Born February 18, 1987. Torstein first began snowboarding when he was twelve years old, prior to which he had only skied. He is recognized for his effortless style and execution of technical jumps along with a mastery of rail skills. Horgmo has competed, and medalled in, a variety of slopestyle and big air snowboarding competitions contributing to his status as one of the top snowboarders in the world, who has helped shape the sport.He is recognized for making the first ever triple cork, his film and online video parts, as well as constantly pushing the level of trick progression in global contests. Although in this film they say how all of Torstein’s success has made his a different person. Its easy to ruin your reputation but it keeping your head on straight is key for Torstein. I hope no matter what people say he will always be the best at what he does.

So last year at the X Games there were a lot of well known snowboarders. One of them is Shaun White. You might know him from Halfpipe a few years ago on a snowboard. But this last year Shaun showed up at the X Games in leather pants… Now wearing Leather pants in the snow is not quite the style these days. The sad thing is, was that they were skin tight. Did I mention he has long red hair that is similar to a girls haha. So anyways Torstien comes up behind White in practice and when White drops in Horgmo goes, “Who’s the chick on the slopes?” This was about the funniest thing he could have said because honestly White looked horrible (for a guy). So later Torstien is interviewed and tells the media what had happened and that is what I have posted below for you guys to check out. Oh and sorry if im not sorry buy Shaun White SUCKS.
So I found this sick video of Torstein shredding with steez as usual. He also gives the guys making the jumps in the park (mainly Mammoth) a little heads up on steepening the lips and landings which allows you to get more air with a 40ft jump comparded to a 60ft jump. This video is sick cause he uses A$VP Rocky’s song from the new album Long Live A$VP. When you are snowboarding you always have to have the jams if you know whats good, and this is a fun song board to. So next time you go to the slopes and notice the jumps getting a little more launchy, thank the homie Torstein and get those double corks! Check out the video and make sure the sound is alll the way up! Ps. if you like the music aspect comment below and share your thoughts.

Everyone has been asking how Torstein has broke up with Nichole… And the truth is all is the video. You see he has an old buddy named Frank that he is using right now and he likes it I mean they are bros and all. If you watch the video its will all make a little more sense. I haven’t named my boards but I plan on it. I will never us Nichole anyways, thats a stupid name for my girlfriend. I would name it some thing prettier, or something ghetto for my park board cause she is hood. I think I might have to get a new gf although they do coast a little. I want Torstein’s new board a give her her own name. That would be sick. Anyways if you have any names you know or use comment below. Otherwise dont be boring and check the video below its pretty funny HA

Halldor Helgason showed up on Torstein’s show In You Face a few years ago. These guys are the best in the park and have improved to this day. This video is sick and they have a fairly long game of back to back tricks all over the park. The way Halldor strarts off the game is pretty funny and that game has developed through some of the best boarders. Anyways, theses guys go at it and my favorite tricks are probably the ones where they nollie air off the slope and do presses to back 5s and it is sick how they carry themselves through the snow. It makes me miss snow boarding a lot and I plan on going back soon, check the video below of them showing off their skill and get on the slopes and try some stuff your self because no matter if your in the park of shredding a black diamond everyone should be able to experience snow.

He you have it, the new improved Pro Mega DC board! This board has some sick new technology like the Lock and Load Camber. The new Lock and Load Camber creates a flat, stable platform for pop, lock and dropping onto rails. Pro Team rider Torstein Horgmo calls this board Nicole, with a new rack. He is a funny guy and in the game In Your Face Horgmo shows Nichole off all up in peoples face just like she likes it. The stiffness of this board gives you more drive and edge hold making it more stable at high speeds. This board is a true twin-tip with tip and tail completely the same. Flat surfaces at the tip and tail of the board provide lift in powder to keep you floating in the deepest snow. Small dimples in the base break water tension to allow your board to glide faster, turn easily and allow you to ride longer. This is a 100% park board for all you park junkies. Get one and hit that Park!
