The Norwegian Oakley shredder made some major noise on Transworld Snowboarding’s Top 10 Most Viewed Videos of 2010 list – as well as claimed honors for the site’s ‘#1 Trick of the Year’ – displaying his ever-increasing popularity with Snowboard fans everywhere and his pioneer status in the sport. He’s stoked…and so are we, of course. Scope the two videos that nailed two spots on the list.

A killer final run sealed the deal to hand Tornstein the big victory. Main Image: Courtesy, Transworld Snowboarding: Link: “Dew Tour Breckenridge Slopestyle Finals”
