Torstein Horgmo, the Norweigian shred-warrior is set to take the snowboard game by storm, Viking style. Well Viking style but minus the raping and the pillaging, 'cause that's not cool at all and Torstein is actually a really mellow kid. And maybe he's not even trying to take anything by storm, rather he's just having fun and sending massive airs over equally massive jumps … in any event, here are Tor's Vitals. After your done reading them wait a couple months and check out Torstein in the upcoming Standard Films release, Asthetica, and Park City's, I Ride Park City.
