Perspectives on Winterclash 2012: Dustin Werbeski

Photography by Dustin Werbeski

Are you coming to Winterclash? If not, why?

Of course, as I’m still floating around Europe. I figure I owe it to myself to come join in the fun once again.

What set up are you going bring to Winterclash?

My polaroid land camera and a 35mm. Ha. Skates wise, I hope to be reunited with my Xsjado Stockwell 4’s there, and I have been putting some serious thought into mobbing around the park on my Powerblading wheels. Oh, and I am questioning bringing my VHS-C “Home Movies” camera to document the whole trip once again, all analog and what not.

What are you looking forward to the most?

Friends and blading… blading with friends. So yeah, just the Winterclash for what it is.

Do you compete? No matter if yes or no, tell us why you do or don’t.

I have and I haven’t. But as for this event, I will. Why, I don’t know exactly, but I guess I have been asked to. Chances are, I’ll just get out there and do my own thing, enjoying myself on all the unseen obstacles… I am talking about skating ramps nontraditionally, just ’cause a launch ramp is lined up one way, doesn’t mean you cant grind it the other. Thats my kinda park skating. It’s not a game winning plan, but it’s mine for winning pleasure.

What was your coolest personal Winterclash moment?

I was very sick last year, my first year there. So… I guess being kicked out of bed by Sagona and Eisler, as they forced me to hold back the puke, and hop on the plane with them to the event. Thanks mates, for without that modivation, I wouldn’t have a single one of the many smile worthy Winterclash memories I do have now.
