Fact: Star Snowboarders don’t play H.O.R.S.E. At least Oakley’s Norwegian Ripper Torstein Horgmo doesn’t. He’s all business. So business, in fact, that when he wants to throw down head-to-head in friendly competition, he calls the game ‘In Your Face’ (we’ll make an acronym of it…I.Y.F.). He did just that with Oakley family member Halldor Helgason recently. And he has the video to prove it. There’s some sick sh** up in there.
The future of surfing is in good hands. And Oakley is making sure of it. 2011’s Oakley Pro Junior campaign is in full swing. And from what’s already gone down thus far, it’s safe to say that this year is on track to be all-time. Each region’s most talented and dazzling young surfers have been throwing down as a preview of what’s to come in the sport. And we’re not even close to being done. With the North Stradbroke Island (Australia), Lowers (California) and Brazil stops in the books – and the coming events in Spain, Japan and France on the horizon, some of the best undiscovered rippers on the Planet are sure to surface onto center stage. All united by the love of the sport and pure stoke on Oakley.
