The “New York Winter Wonderland” was a temporary skate park built by local skateboarders inside of a 15,000 square foot privately owned warehouse space in Long Island City (LIC) Queens, NY.
TORRO! Skateboards has posted this clip of Joseph Gil, Leo Heinert, Rodney Torres and Dennis Miron skating through the rough winter season.
TORRO! am Leo Heinert has been destroying the streets of New York City for years. Leo had a break out year in 2014, releasing an amazing edit for TORRO! Skateboards followed by a Video Check Out for Transworld before finishing out with an impressive showing at Tampa Am. Leo sat down with Network A at Skatepark 5050 in Staten Island to give Timbo the exclusive on his plans to go pro, only on dose.
TORRO! founder Rodney Torres is always on a mission to find new creative spots to skate in New York City, but in order to make something happen this winter, he had to take some risks to get things done. Rodney did just that by skating a deteriorating bank spot along the water in Brooklyn, NY in freezing cold temperatures for this “Hit & Run NYC” commercial to set off 2015.
This week, TORRO! Skateboards celebrated their two year anniversary by releasing this introductory video part for their first rider Leo Heinert. Leo talks about filming for this part, his day job as a courier, being cast as an Ecuadorian gang member, obtaining his real estate license and a host of other topics for the X Games site.
