Ernie Torres is a small dude with a big career. He came out from Kansas City with guns blazing, first gaining recognition for ollieing, what was long considered to be, the un-ollie-able Taylor Street double set in San Francisco. Ever since that fateful day, which ended up earning him the coveted "contents" photo in Thrasher magazine, Ernie has never let up. Going from flow to pro with essentially the same roster of sponsors, Big Ern recently parted ways with Adio footwear. I caught up with him in his home away from home, North County San Diego, to film a little session and talk skating, shoes and the much-anticipated new video from Real skateboards.
