Ernie Torres

I met Ernie about three years ago when he first moved to Phoenix. Our mutual friend Greg introduced us and then pretty much left town right after, and Ernie didn't really know too many people in Phoenix so we started skating together. Despite the 115 degree days, Ernie and I would go skate parks all day. Ernie's a funny dude. From a distance, he seems super cocky and competitive but it's all a joke. The funny part of the joke, to me, is that he can actually back up his joke cockines because he's amazing at skateboarding. I've always thought that was super funny. I haven't talked with him much since he left Phoenix but when I do run into him we always have a good time. Ernie helped me out a lot when he lived in Phoenix and he was super fun to skate with. I was better at skateboarding when I used to hang with him.

  1. Tim this is Roger again. Hey man I hope everything is going good for you, your blog and everyone at Woodward. But I was wondering if you could give me Buzzy's email address so I can mail him the questions for a Cody Mac interview. Jim (real owner) said that it's possible he could answer the questions and that it could be on Thrasher if Jim gets the questions. So yeah try and help me out and if you don't have it that's fine, so talk to you later Roger.
