Dispatch - Davis Torgerson
Had you spent much time in Atlanta before this trip?
Not really. I think the last time I was in ATL was one of my first REAL trips back in 2008!
This was originally an all AM trip, then you jumped on board kind of last minute. What sparked that?
I didn't know that it was supposed to be an all AM trip. I think Nate just mentioned it and I was down. But any chance I get to go on a trip and get out of LA I'm all for it.
Anything hectic go down on this trip?
I can’t think of anything. Am I forgetting something that happened?
Who did you room with?
I roomed with Nate Alton (Thunder TM).
Who fired up the sessions most?
Probably Alexis because he skates every single spot.
How was J-Brock as a tour guide?
Couldn't have asked for a better one.
Did you ever feel like you were the older guy on the trip, giving the young dudes life advice?
Ha, maybe a little bit. I never thought of giving them life advice, though. Alexis, Ish, and Clint are all very solid dudes.
Did the 80% humidity, 90 degree heat slow you down at all?
I thought heading into the trip how crazy it was we were doing an ATL trip in July. But I think we were all so juiced to skate, and were skating so many good spots that we didn't really think about it. I think we just accepted the fact we were going to sweat a lot.
Ish has a lot of crazy phrases and sayings. Whats your favorite Ish’ism?
What's next? Working on anything?
Just trying to film and get some more trips going!
When in doubt?
Where's the next place the Thunder Team should go?
Down for anywhere. I'm not picky!
