Some of Zoltan’s previous fancy kickflipping footwork.

Things ended amicably between the aquatic trickster and the Orange County based boardsport clothing giant, so much so that Volcom said they’d award Torkos an additional $20,000 if he could land an above-the-lip kickflip and catch it on video as proof.

Torkos accepted the challenge and has been working diligently ever since to achieve his dream of pulling off the first above-the-lip surfing kickflip in history.
