Torey was a little kid riding for Shorty's at the time of Skate More. After Shorty's stopped making boards in the mid 2000s, he accepted an offer from Daewon Song to ride for Almost. He turned pro for them and was on the team until he joined Plan B in 2010. Torey does a lot of Storm inspired tech tricks that could be from a video game. I like it better when he does simpler tricks higher or longer, like a hardflip off flat over a picnic table or a backside tailslide that goes forever. Torey is still riding for DVS after ten years.
Torey has been doing Grizzly Grip since he was a teenager. The company has grown from his garage to having two page advertising spreads in the mags. Honestly, I do not get having graphics on griptape, but that trend does not seem to be letting up any time soon. It just looks confusing to me.
Gilbert Crockett has a killer new part out for Quasi.
Giovanni Reda was the photogapher.
