Conexión: Mathías Torres's Part

03.24.20

Mathías Torres skates the streets of Tokyo and New York City connecting cultures, spots and friends followed by Yair Barrios' camera.

Name: Mathías Torres Age: 24 Hometown: Santiago, Chile Sponsors: Nike SB, Volcom

Mathías is a super simple kind of guy. A great character, friendly with everyone around him. We've been skating for over fifteen years together, always pushing each other skating while out in the streets.

He's been hyperactive ever since a little kid, super motivated and with the best sense of humor. He's the best at making jokes and ready to inward-heel-first-try whatever comes in his way.

We both got sponsored by Nike SB at the same time, about seven years ago, so it's always a pleasure to skate with him whatever the circumstances are. He loves jumping down big stuff and won't give up until he's got the clip- which he always does in a stylish way. Probably the hardest set of features to put together in your skating.

Best of all- he's always ready to go skate with you with the biggest smile on his face.
