Stories like Davis Torgerson‘s don’t fulfill themselves too often. Bursting into the skate spotlight with a truly standout part in 2008′s Boondoggle, the Minnesota native graduated into a spot on Real’s roster, with unprecedented switch skills and a mean back smith ostensibly blazing his path in the fast lane to professional status. Alas, some six years passed and his contemporaries had either been given a namesake wooden plank or cast into the warehouse shadows (shouts out to Damian Bravo), the statistics of which looked bleak for our shaggy-headed friend. Bleak, that is, until earlier this month, when Real Skateboards finally knighted ol’ Torgy with a pro model. To celebrate, the brand released an extraordinary part on Thrasher‘s site over the weekend, showcasing Torgerson’s skills and demonstrating the young shredder’s bright future.
