Twenty-four-year-old Torger Johnson has seen it all, having been a skateboarder since he was twelve. Today Torger lives in Hawaii, where he has better control of his surfing life, but he’s still very visible on the skateboarding scene, where his subtle, carefully planned freestyle routines reflect his experience and professionalism. Torger sees skateboarding as a very individualistic form of expression and therefore recognizes its reemergence as a serious and viable sport for contemporary lifestyles. A serious musician and an actor, with several TV commercials and skateboarding films to his credit, Torger hopes to continue to promote the sport through films, tours, and demonstrations with the Makaha/Logan Earth Ski people.
