“Tommy ‘Lighnting’ Leitner has made a career of playing on the edge. His talent for playing hard and pulling off huge combos has made him the thing of legend.
His signature move is a no holds barred ripping combo that is off the charts. And he does one in practically every routine he does.”
During the 2003 Nike Freestyle Face-off tour Tommy and partner Sune Wentzel performed for over 100,000 and were featured on MTV 7 times. In 2003 Tommy and Sune won both divisions at the Paganello Freestyle Challenge and won the Freestyle World Championships in Rimini, Italy with partner Paul Kenny.
“Tommy honed his skills as a member of the “shred or die” aka “Sideout” freestyle school led by Skippy Jammer, John Jewell, and Larry Imperiale. Now a fully realized player in his own right he is leading the next wave of players. He is probably the most well rounded beach or wind player in the world.
By moving to Europe recently he has helped influence a new generation of “Euro” jammers. Tom’s game includes a lot of skids, against work, tipping, rolling and a creative catching game. He’s the real deal. There are many imitations.”
