Default Torstein vs Halldor

So, Torstein is my favorite rider but after watching this Halldor is a freaking machine. If you have not seen it, check out his lobster flip as well. Epic Steez

Halldor has twice as much pop as Torstein.
Part of that is the age difference the other part is Torstein is too much of a bar star.

How is age a factor? Are you talking like maturity and technical focus riding vs immaturity and style focus riding? Please explain?

Fresh legs man! 22 is legs like springs. 27 is or can be more nightclubs, late nights, traveling and a little loss of pop if you're not keeping a disciplined workout regimen and lifestyle. That was my experience at those ages. 27 is five years out from college sports, you have to start paying a little more attention to your body.

Torstein is the man and all but Halldor has been my favorite rider to watch since I saw him. His natural steeze is unmatched.

Have you read some of halldor's interviews and comments? You should read his interview with Transworld the thing is hilarious. Halldor is a drunkard and a party hound. His own country didn't want him for the Olympics because of his antics, and he is the best chance they got at a snowboarding medal (despite him not expecting to win).
