"Torstein is one of the most dedicated and talented snowboarders to ever live. He competes all year long and manages to put out some of the most groundbreaking video parts around." - Mark McMorris
"The rotations add up." - Chad Otterstrom
"Torstein does it all." - Travis Rice
More than a decade after The Don first debuted the double cork in Mack Dawg’s Shakedown, JP Walker generously gives it up to the guy who usurped his stunt by adding a twist and thereby ushering in the era of the triple. “Torstein’s just a straight up beast in the air. It looks like he can do anything he wants to and he basically does,” explains Walker of his Oakley Snowboarding: For Me marquee mate. “He has a good rail game too.” In 2014, Torstein was a perennial player on the contest tour, making the finals of virtually every event he entered. While he didn’t climb the podium as many times as years passed, his worth as a rider isn’t merely measured by the oversized checks and ore that he takes home. As one of the patriarchs of the Shred Bots squad, Torstein is doing something arguably as innovative as when he first ushered in the era of the off axis trio. The Shred Bots are an über crew comprised of Norway's finest freestyle specimens with a couple amiable Canadians thrown in to boot. Collectively, they've proliferated the web with their own brand of digital mayhem, culminating with this fall's full-length release of Shred Bots The Movie. This, combined with his contest regimen and his revelatory appearance in Oakley’s Snowboarding: For Me makes Torstein one of the most prolific pros around and he is still one of the only ones who can claim a triple cork into pow.
