On Holiday by Mike Torres: Los Gringos Tour

When you’re renting a high rise apartment with marble floors, touring bad ass restaurants more than you’re touring street spots, carving out time for a beach session every day, spending a day in a rainforest sliding down waterfalls, and the poker dice are rolling more than your wheels, you gotta stop and ask yourself, is this a skate trip, or am I just on holiday?Mike Torres.

Jeremy Lister: Gone Crabbin by Mike Torres

I met Jeremy Lister back in 2009 while passing through Greenville, SC. I always remembered him as “the hippie dude who was freakishly good at crab-rolls”. Well, I got one of those right. He’s no hippie, but the man can crab.Mike Torres.

Gary Murphy: Twin Towers Edit by Mike Torres

One drunken night during a weekend of worshipping The Blade Gods, I convinced Gary Murphy to abandon his itinerary back to cold ass Michigan, and come live with me for a couple weeks in Greenville, South Carolina.

Unfortunately I had to work my ass off for the entirety of his stay, but we managed to sneak a few blade sessions in here and there. This was one of those sessions.Mike Torres.

Arsenio Patterson: 2012 Edit by Mike Torres

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Arsenio Patterson and I have been working together on blade video projects since 2005. The blader/filmer relationship is always important when working together on a project, especially when you have someone as talented and as trusting as Arsenio.

Arsenio Patterson: 2012 Edit by Mike Torres

At the beginning of this project we had many conversations about what we wanted to accomplish, and what we wanted this to look like. Ultimately the original project we were working on got scrapped due to a change of skate sponsor.

This is a compilation of the footage we gathered during this period. Arsenio Patterson now represents Oso Boots, and has been skating better than ever, while maintaining his responsibilities as a proud father.Mike Torres.

Barcelona: First go by Mike Torres

After five unanswered visits to The States, it was about time we returned the favor to Dan and Mike. Here’s the long winded story of a few Americans traveling overseas to pay our friends a visit, and to do a little blading in the street skating capital of the world: Barcelona.

Mike Torres: 2012 Blade Profile

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

In the past couple of years, when I wasn’t nursing a dislocated shoulder, working my ass off, recovering from a sprained ankle, rehabbing a pulled ACL, uprooting my life to the dirty south, working my ass off even more, pretending that my wrist wasn’t broken, nursing a dislocated shoulder (again), and totally doing it with every girl ever… I was rollerblading.Mike Torres.

2009 Stretch Tour Highlights by Mike Torres

This is an edit I made just a few days after the tour ended back in 2009, on my friend Connor O’Brien’s computer, while I was still stuck out in California (which ended up being for just over a month).

The Stretch Tour Video was always something I had a strong desire to make, but never felt the full story was truly captured on camera.

Perhaps one day I will release all of this footage in some form, but until then, enjoy this four and a half minute recap of me, and some of the best friends a dude could ask for traveling across the United States in our 1989 Lincoln Towncar Stretch Limousine.

Grant Hazelton Blades in AZ (2011): Moustache Squad, Edit by Mike Torres

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Grant Hazelton

Quoting Mike Torres:

He’s not my brother. He is also not my twin. He is the better looking, more responsible, more technical, more stylish, version of myself. He is my upgrade.

Perhaps he was sent here from the future to kill the young John Connor, and it is my job to save him regardless of the fact that I am a technically inferior model… I digress.

Grant is one of my best friends, and probably my favorite person to skate with. And boy can he pull off a mustache.

Filmed by Mike Torres & Gabe Holm.

Song: James Murphy – Gente.
