──Rodney Torres(English)


First setup:
My first set up was a Vision Lucero with Gullwing Trucks and Toxic Wheels. My dad bought it for me as a gift for my 11th birthday. That setup was tight!

First trick:
I don't know about you, but my first trick was an ollie.

First video you ever watched:
The first video I ever watched was Ban This by Powell Peralta. Still one of my favorite videos. Frankie Hill's part in that video is sick!

First sponsor:
My first legit sponsor was Rhythm Skateboards. Thanks to RB Umali and Felix Arguelles.

First coverage in a skate magazine:
My first coverage in a skate magazine was a Check Out in Thrasher when I was about 15 years old.

First video part:
My first video part was my 411 issue 14, Wheels of Fortune part in 1995/96. Thanks to Anthony Claraval and RB Umali.

First skate injury:
My first injury was a fractured ankle. I was about 13 years old when it happened. To this day, that injury was the worst pain I've ever felt. I was out of commission for months.

First time you broke your board:
The first time I broke my board happened while trying to land a trick down some stairs. I landed wrong on one of the tries and SNAP!... broken board.

First cuss word:
FUCK! I don't remember. Haha!

First thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word VHS:
The first thing that comes to mind is the classics.
