    fucking vintage bullshit, who was missing his childhood so hard he spilled it over work that is watched by milions of people. this looks like shit. there was a reason why vhs got old. with quality from a brick. awesome tricks got screwed because of this cry of nostalgia. weberski you pussy. fuck your “vintage” bullshit. release full hd, on dvd even, but this is pure faggotness over pure wannabe cinematographer. this looks good only on acid.

    What is this shit? The hipster pro team video?

    Managed to sit through ten minutes and then skimmed through the rest, honestly, it could have been a pretty decent look at the Barcelona scene or even a look at the makings of the footage we see from Powerhouse, but instead it came across as pretentious try hard drivel. Going out of your way to film poorly on old equipment to achieve a look is so ridiculous I don’t even know where to begin…

    Well let’s start with the “cinematography” or lack thereof. Honestly, it was not shot well. They say a good photographer can make beautiful photos with a disposable camera and I believe that to be true, and a lot of the principle of photography transfer over into cinematography, however, you don’t seem to understand even the basics of framing and composition.

    The music was a hipsters wet dream, and the skating wasn’t even engaging. I think this is a slap in the face to those people who actually put you up in Barcelona, paid for your equipment and trip out there, only to have you produce this epic piece of garbage. I’d rather have my eyes forced open while being made to sit through every Brazillionaire edit played on an endless loop than to sit through one more sitting of this nonsense.

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

  8. hd Says:

    it was all on hd. for free. all year. for a film expert you seem to be missing a few clues. it’s supposed to look like a HOME MOVIE, not a feature film. thanks for identifying yourself as someone who’s opinion is worthless.

    Pom West ” I think this is a slap in the face to those people who actually put you up in Barcelona, paid for your equipment and trip out there, only to have you produce this epic piece of garbage.”

    Haha you are a dumb fuck. He filmed it VHS by far the most expensive video technology we have. Go fucking kill yourself.

    I personally enjoyed the video, this isn’t supposed to be your typical skate video… There is skating in it but the real magic is getting to come along for the ride.

  13. angelo Says:

    shit was wak only good if you enjoy those pro nuts in your mouth. If anyone else or no name skater made a edit like this it wouldn’t even see the light of day but since its the usd guys yea its beautiful and yea my opinion matters hd because i like my shit fed through a spoon not a straw. You guys embarrass the thought of me partaking in the same past time as you

  14. Rob Says:

    Just perfect! Made me smile whole video.
    Not typical everyday skating video on Rollernews.

    There are plenty HD videos with skating on Vimeo and Youtube.. Go, watch, enjoy. Why so much hate on this I don’t really understand.

  15. 2R Says:

    Anyone who doesn’t like this hasn’t been to or skated in barcelona.

    theres just a special feel of the city from the way people are, through the buildings and from the roots of the city.

    This vid did a pretty good job of showing that to those who understand it. It’s all about the enjoyment of being in one of the best cities in europe with the people you enjoy being with.

  16. Anonymous Says:

    i am insulted by the music being called a hipster’s wet dream. I am a hipster and that music is not at all what I listen to.

    really enjoyed the video though. thumbs up hipster pro team. thumbs down people who aren’t cool enough to warrant a pejorative term

  17. Alex Rudolf Says:

    Wow!!! i like it a lot!!!! great job!!!!

  18. charles Says:

    This what show what I like, having fun skating and rolling around with my friends, all in a good mood. Be happy enjoy your life !

  19. d.w bro Says:

    the haters want more. all you are doing is throwing gas into a fire. we are laughing at you idiots with your hotshot paragraphs. instead of bashing behind your computer. go out, make a real life, and try to take over dustins job. it wont happen you god damn grom. this is dustins job, its what he loves to do. you dont see him going out of his way to watch your lazy youtube videos and comment like a retard bashing your profession. get real.

    p.s- this video was amazing. keep it up. we want more, we want more.

  20. Matt.G Says:

    I liked this a lot. It had a good positive vibe the entire way through and more to it than an average edit. This could have been shortened into a 5 minute edit, but if it was you would miss all the little things that make it good, the lifestyle, Mr. Tico’s epic quote, fighting with a cop, scheming the metro system, the skitches, random stair bashes, kids being stoked. I could go on and on.

  21. Doug Says:

    angelo you should quit then. you embarrass us all.

  22. Ben Shelbourne Says:

    Another fucking idiot who thinks he is the next Bob Dylan of rollerblading, trying to take over Oli Shorts wannabe status.

    That was fucking gay.

    30minutes of absolute shite which could have been 4 minutes of actual footage.

    I dont want to see 9 year old girls sliding round on carpet you hipster fag.

    Go back to american apparel and your stinking vintage clothing shop and stay there.

    This is 2012 not 1992, there is a reason for that.

  23. Anonymous Says:

    What the fuck is this shit?

  24. Ben Shelbourne Says:

    @2R

    Ive been to BCN quite a few times, it isnt a special city or anything, its just an average dirty big city.

    Sure its good for blading but its full of prostates, dogs roaming round, litter everywhere and dodgy bastards trying to scam every tourist in every street.

    If you want a city with a nice feel go to York/Cannes/Melbourne – not BCN.

  25. Pom West Says:

    @Erik Burrow Are you being sarcastic when you say VHS is the most expensive medium we have or are you really just that ignorant?

  26. MikeDuff Says:

    Rollernews comments are a cesspool. You’re all skateboarders aren’t you?

  27. RAZOR TEAM Says:

    Where the fuck is the dub-step bro? This isn’t swagtastic like my Razor Blader Gangsters g.

  28. noel Says:

    nope, if i didnt blade i would never guess the worlds best bladers were in this edit.

    cool concept but totally failed on execution maybe next time.

    BORED BORED AND SO MUCH BORED !!

  31. Woaahhh Says:

    by the way everyone who hates on rollernews. i fucking hate you. and rollernews- stop this whole comment thing.
    this is my first comment on rollernews. i came on the comments to find the music and i was appalled at the comments people have put. its amazing to think rollerbladers are saying this about rollerblading. You made me hate a part of the sport which is some of the people.
    I loved that edit. Was a joy to watch, shows rollerbladers having fun in one of the best cities in the world . I thank you!

    Song at 11.00?

  32. god Says:

    it’s great that this video shines a light so brightly it exposes the children and their comments for what they are.

  33. god Says:

    ps. ben shelbourne do you think before you rage? take a look at the shite you’ve put out, it hardly warrants your attitude. in fact it is so terrible that your whole commentary turns into a form of comedic theatre. bravo!

  34. ???? Says:

    please tell me that wasn’t actually ben shelbourne.

    Wonder how much of the Xsjado footage WAS being saved for the team video… Like front fastslide on the wall rail.

  37. Horst Says:

    I wonder why the people on this site even skate, your lives must be so fucking sad.

    Looks like my parents made a skate video shot on super 8 kinda neat, feels like a home video .

  38. Kenny Tico Says:

    Buen trabajo Dustin! People hating must not realize you weren’t trying to make the best skate video ever. This is a collection of timeless memories, not a wannabe timeless skate flick.

    Sorry but f…. this shit. I hate all of it. Long boring sketch ugly, made me remember why rollerblade is uncool. We are in 2012 you know. I’m cool with the vintage but do it propoly please that was a waste.

    Richie Eisler, Dominic Sagona, Worapoj Boonnim, Jeff Stockwell, JC Rowe, Chris Farmer, Paul John, Fredrik Andersson, Dom West, Leon Humphrise, David Sizemore with all those name I’m sure a retard with webcam can do something cooler.

  41. Fred Dubé Says:

    Sorry for the hate, I’m sure next time will be better.

  42. god Says:

    you guys are too stupid. they already filmed everyone. dustin’s job was to take pictures. and they both skated like bosses. this was done on the side, for fun. sad state, this site.

    I dig it dudez…looked like alot of fun. Some sweet blading in there

  46. Americaistheonlycountryintheworld Says:

    I hate Europe, I’ve never been there but I hate it, I’ve never left America because its the best country and we’re the best at everything we do.
    I hate to see these fuckers having fun, why are they allowed to just bum around in Europe.
    You guys need to get real jobs like being a cop or someone who fixes air conditioning units.
    I do like vhs for old porn movies, it’s funny. I like hd for skate videos so i can zoom in to see what bearing these guys use. Apparently some of these guys use secret bearing with special technology . Ah whatever I’m off to have a ____

  47. smokey macpot Says:

    fucking ill.

    i like waking life and barton fink a lot too.

  48. simoni-joshm Says:

    Guys got a point. the videos been filmed!!!!!. dont’t worry guys!
    Dustin was there and decided to film with his camera and make an edit. sure the edit shouldn’t be on rollernews, only because for some reason rollernews is about hating on skating you don’t agree on…

  53. Scott Loper Says:

    Blah blah blah, lets all complain that we get a FREE DOWNLOADABLE 30 MINUTE LONG BLADE VIDEO IN MULTIPLE FORMATS. Jeeze man, remember the days we would be glued to the computer waiting skatepile to drop new edits? No, you probably don’t because the only people that would bitch about such things are whiny ass poserbladers who quit skateboarding because it got too mainstream.

    Haters…if you dont like, just shut the fuck up !

  55. Witalis Made in Poland Says:

    It was VERY NICE TO WATCH !
    It is obvious it is the way they wanted. I can see sometimes even too much like zoom in and out on purpose.
    I’m amazed how people here can’t figure out is was done on purpose to make the video VHS type.
    I was supposed to remind us – guys from old time the vibe from past and I think it rather did – maybe sometimes even too much ;)

    All in all, it’s a very good piece of video with hidden editing.
    Blind guys will not probably notice it…

    Ps. Again, do not say it is not HD….it’s obvious, that’s the decision of the author

  56. rich Says:

    roll down ledge 360 stair ride was nice … i thought this was great … what an imagination!! encourage more to use their imagination encourage more to use their imaginationencourage more to use their imagination encourage more to use their imagination

  57. Fearghal Says:

    Really liking this vid.

    its about time rollerbladers did something creative with regards skate videos. A nice breath of fresh air to the usual HD gangster rap rolling video…Fuck that.

    Again thanks for this post!

  58. moderator Says:

    You need a dam moderator on this site…….

  59. Anonymous Says:

    very retro vhs i-smoke-tonnes-of-weed arty which is fine for a bit here and there but too much detracted from any skating and got irritating.

  60. Pom West Says:

    I’m amazed that people can’t see the lack of talent. You can shoot VHS and still make it look good with that home movie aesthetic. But the person shooting this doesn’t know how to operate a camera, over exposed shots, dirty playhead, zooming in and out (for aesthetic? really?).

    Honestly, his photography is just as bad so I’m not surprised. Rollerblading has talented photographers, it’s a shame that because this guy grew up with Richie Eisler that the Conference decided to buy him a camera and give him a year abroad to try to learn how to take photos.

    Doing nothing but skating and taking pictures (and apparently filming this garbage) and yet you couldn’t manage the time to learn about composition, depth of field, focus, proper lighting…I mean google that shit so your projects don’t look like utter garbage.

  61. dr phil Says:

    Look how upset you are over a video on the internet its fascinnating!

  62. powwowfuckthe fuckoff Says:

    i cant understnad your hate and why you have to hate. why don’t you go and grab a skateboard or make it better grab a scooter and wank over your comments on rollernews. you people are such a waste of space.
    i find it depressing that you honestly sit back in you chair and respond to a good leftover edit and dis. Ben Sh.dude your weak, sooo weak

  63. powwowfuckthe fuckoff Says:

    i hate rollerbladers, your all fucking wankers. enjoy this sick sport. IM GUNNA CRY NOW hhahahaha

  64. Haffey Says:

    Couldn’t make it through 10 min of this garbage. I guess powerslide like it when their pros sit around and jerk each other off, like OMG you look so retro it’s Hawt!

  65. The Dude Says:

    How do I download this from Vimeo? It says you can download it, but I don’t see how! Help please!

  66. Winston Says:

    So all you guys bitching about this clearly have adhd. Whats the point of bitching about a FREE online video of some filming juss for FUN and, decided to put it togeth to get a lil look of whats goin while some quality edits get filmed.

  67. 666 Says:

    That felt refreshing. mad props to the skaters that had fun. looked like fun! vintage for a whole skate video is new to me. would like to see more in the future. farmers fastslide was sick

  68. Anonymous Says:

    Rollernews comment section; the land that thought forgot.

    That edit/video/whatever was dope.
    I liked the look of it and enjoyed the b-roll mixed in. the current crop of online skaters that expect a 2 minute edit of all hammers filmed on a shitty DSLR on a stabilizer are killing me.

    MEGA PROPS TO Dustin Werbeski.

  69. SASK! Says:

    Rollernews is horrible. the worst site.

    Watched whole video one more time with my girlfriend. We were in trip to Barcelona this summer. She liked this video very much and actually thanked me for showing it to her. It reminded how much fun it is being in Barcelona! I haven’t been in place I enjoy so much.

    So thank you Powerhouse crew (Dustin and Richie) for capturing something amazing in and summing it up on 35 minute video!

    Haters going to to their job anywhere..

  72. Sam J Says:

    This was pretty cool.

    People complaining really need to step back and realize that this is just another video that contains rollerblading and friends. It’s not about having perfect photography or cinematography skills. Clearly they had a lot of fun and it shows, I’m glad they shared it with us.

    All of you ungrateful children should take your negative vibes and fuck off.

  73. datobi Says:

    I didn´t read all the hate comments.

    For me it is just a cool flick to watch. This is no high quality tilt-shift overloaded video, and its for free. The filming was not intended to be top notch, if you look at the other powerhouse edits, you can clearly see that Dustin knows his stuff.
    Personally I consider it as a documentary that shows how the powerhouse guys had a very good time and lots of fond memorys.

    How about beeing thankful to people that put out a free online video of 30 minutes? There is a lot of work behind that. If you dont like it, dont watch it. Stop complaining and create something!

    It shows pure emotion and what some of you seem to have forgotten: how fun rolling is! Its the only thing that is important to me after 15 years of rolling.

  74. tillet Says:

    The first few minutes I wondered what I was in for… but when I put my attitude aside and just enjoyed it for what it was, I was satisfied.
    Had some really nice stuff in there.

    It’s funny how angry people get over something as petty as a free internet video that has colors/filters/cuts they don’t like…

    And the expert cinematographers on here making complete TITS of themselves by ranting on with garbage while simultaneously missing the point entirely.

    Enjoyable to watch. Obviously not for everyone..

  75. brooooo Says:

    PomWest, as long as you’re living by the rules of composition, your work will only be as good as everyone else’s. They were designed as GUIDELINES, and meant to be broken.

    I’ll probably never be able to travel to Barcelona to rollerblade, but this shows me more than just skatespots and epic tricks, but what its like to ROLLERBLADE in that city. Thanks Werbeski!

    There’s a word that we are all missing on this comment page and that’s ”FUN”.This short is about FUN thats why we skate.I say bring back VHS people may start buying skate video’s again so small skate company’s can make some money from it.

  77. chris Says:

    yo what the hell…. shit was weak… that vintage shit mixed in with dylan is something seen so much its really boring

  78. TL Says:

    I don’t rollerblade, but started to follow these powerhouse videos this year. I am going to have to say that all these videos have inspired me to learn how to skate. Not just to do tricks either. Just wanting to share in that the pure joy of skating that is oozing from these videos. It is disheartening that there is negative comments on here, but that is life. I admit some of the editing was a bit much for me. But I feel nothing but inspired by all the things that have come out of the powerhouse. I can’t believe that so many things were happening at once and it was all showcased this year in one epic way. The different videos (sections from so many different people, barcelona sessions etc…) and now this home movie put it in perspective how much was happening at the same time. To think that they were filming and making all those crazy sections that blew my mind, and that the other people weren’t sitting on their ass at all. They were capturing it and making a home movie. Wow!

    I love seeing that passion in anything, and what a way to capture it for your sport and celebrate the diversity of talent in your sport. I am not sure where the skaters featured this year rank in your sport, but what an amazingly diverse and talented sport this is. I think it is pretty special that a group people filled with that much passion for your sport showcased your sport in this light to the world. What amazing world to recognize differences and see people for their gifts. What an amazing thing to see. Thank you powerhouse for sharing this for the world to see.

  79. Pom West Says:

    @brooooo

    I understand the rules are made to be broken, but when you break the rules you should at least have prior knowledge of what the rules are. And this should come across in the skill you display in operating a camera. This does not hold true for Werbeskis work.

  80. Lee Says:

    Who the fuck are you Pom West? Why do you feel so personally threatened by this video? You are so mad that I think you might need therapy and anger management treatments in order to continue to exist as a normal human being. If a skate video angers you to this extent maybe you need to stop trying to be a global representative of rollerblading and seeing other people’s work as an affront to your own.

    There are different people out there, they appreciate different things, different lifestyles, different cultures and different art. It doesn’t make anyone objectively right or wrong in a concrete way as you’re making it out to seem. You can present your argument, but realize that not everyone will agree with you, and nothing you say or do may be able to change that.

    For instance, I personally think you’re a fucking clown, but I probably won’t be able to convince you of that.

    Good work, Dustin. Keep it up. I enjoyed seeing something different that wasn’t exclusively based around displaying rollerblading as we have always seen it, but incorporated it in a less in your face kind of way.

  86. John Hepp Says:

    Is this a joke? Seriously, I couldn’t tell. There’s no way anybody thinks they can time travel by dressing like they’re from the 70’s and using an old ass camera and still doctoring the footage to make it look even older…. What the fuck? Such a dick tease. There’s a bunch of good pros on that team that I’d love to see and honestly I couldn’t stomach the vibe. Couldn’t watch it. I’m not gonna sit through yet more b roll footage of this incredibly hackneyed concept sprinkled with actual clips here and there. This shit needs to gtfo of rollerblading. It was never cool in the first place, but now it’s beyond wack. Oh wait did I mention the intention to find songs from the 70’s also made me o_O. What more could you guys do? You guys dropping acid behind the scenes?

  87. rupert Says:

  89. ian Says:

    there are some sick fucking clips in this but it’s painful to watch through minutes of bullshit to find them. honestly i just want to watch skating, if you want to make a documentary about barcelona or chillin with your friends please feel free to do so in whatever way you want. don’t call it “the powerhouse movie” when it’s just some kind of art experiment please

  90. rupert Says:

    ian it’s crazy that you can describe the point so perfectly… but miss it.

  91. teat Says:

    Pom West, you and your posts stink of jealousy. Did you apply of this “job” that Dustin has and get rejected. I am very sorry if you did. But since you sound like you are claiming you are hot shit behind the lens. Please post up your portfolio for us all to see. Please do, I’m sure a lot of us would like to see it. Oh, and please put out all your videos that you filmed with pros this year….oh wait…you dont have any, sorry.

    You are the poser, not Dustin.

  92. Stephen Riddick Says:

    If You havent got anything good to say dont say anything at all.

    Made me smile, enjoyed it and reminded me of hoax 3 broken english in sections, especially the hill bombing.

  93. Garett Says:

    That was bloody awsome, had a mad vintage surf video nostalgic feel to it that newer videos just don’t capture. Great work guys.

  94. Mitch Says:

    How pathetic is Pom West? Honestly? Is that guy for real? What do you think your some professional photographer who should be the cult leader of rollerblading’s public image? All you ever do on here is shit talk, behind a fake name, like a straight up bitch. This video was free, fucking deal with.

  95. Pom West Says:

    The video was free, that means it doesn’t have to be good. Get fucked, if it gets posted on Rollernews it’s open to scrutiny and criticism, when did rollerblading get so protective of garbage work. That’s the problem with this industry, no one can take criticism and learn from it. Obviously I’m not the only one who can see through this sham of a project and bravo to those who aren’t jaded by blader goggles. Just because it’s rollerblading, doesn’t mean it’s good, and certainly doesn’t mean it’s good for this industry. I don’t waste my time filming skating anymore, because it doesn’t pay jack shit. Please be advised however, that I was a regular contributor to VG since the early days, and have contributed footage to a lot of the videos you faggots jerk off to. Stop choking on Dustin’s dick and open your eyes.

  96. M T Says:

    Getting something special for free and still complaining? Sounds like spoiled rollerbladerkids…

    Open your mind! Live and let live…

    And please, on behalf of every serious bladinglover: shut up if you got nothing real to say!

  97. Winston Says:

    @ John Hepp
    I dont talk shit on these forums most the time, but you’re a fucking idiot read the damn description. It says BEHIND THE SCENES, dont bitch about somthing your’re not gonna bother to read whats its about.

  98. Teat Says:

    @pomwest. You contributed to the early VG’s? So what? You mailed some clips to Dave Paine in the fucking 1990’s? And don’t film skating anymore because you can’t make money off it? Wow. You are more out of touch with the rest of us than we all thought. Oh and you contributed clips? Not edited? Dustin didn’t make this to make money. It’s a behind the scenes video, as the title states.

    As for everyone bitching about sick clips in this video that are a waste. Have you seen any of the other powerhouse edits this year that richie and Dustin put out? From what I remember you all busted nuts about them. These are the behind the scenes of those edits. Plus all the good clips were saved for the xsjado movie. Fuck most of you are sore losers stinking of jealousy.

    I was with Dustin, the powerhouse and the xsjado

  99. Teat Says:

    Team while they filmed this and Do you honestly think that there weren’t at least 2 other cameras filming the whole time

  100. canadaguy Says:

    wow this is amazing! great concept and execution!

  101. Mitch Says:

    Pom West, sounds like your just another jaded faggot dieing of jealousy. I found the video very entertaining, and fresh. You need to stop taking rollerblading so seriously. Arn’t you a grown man? Your acting like a bitchy jealous high school girl. Grow up.

    Opinions are bitchy and jealous in the rollerblading industry haha. Rollerblading needs to grow up and stop just accepting shit as cool because it involves rollerblades. It’s like that post where an actor was wearing the Xsjado Farmer boot and it ended up on Rollernews, who gives a fuck. Just because it has rollerblades in it doesn’t mean we should give a shit. There’s no reason to produce quality work in this industry because garbage is widely acceptable to almost everyone in this industry. This doesn’t just pertain to our media, but can easily be seen in the sheer number of shitty rollerblading t-shirt companies that have existed over the years. Silk screening a poorly designed logo onto a t-shirt is all it takes to be a supporter of this industry, when in fact the sheer act of doing that takes more from the industry than it gives back visive funds going to companies with no long term business plan over established companies of those who’ve put their all into it and who are trying to make a living from it. That’s what we need, people who not only have the talent to make what they’re doing look good (whether that be media/clothing/hard goods), but who also have the drive to persist in a near dying industry (by that I mean the industry side of things not the community/sport side of things) in order to get this sport to a point where others can make a living from it. I have a lot of pro friends and it breaks my heart knowing that for all their talent, they will never get anything from this sport more than bad knees and other long term injuries. This video is just another example of a step in the wrong direction for us.

    And you know, honestly, I wouldn’t give a shit if it was posted for what it is. Ie. a tape of B-Roll. But it was posted as a video, a free online video with the intention of it being new and unique and pushing boundaries, changing the way we look at our sport. When in reality it’s just some hipster bullshit from a guy who wishes he was Bob Dylan.

    To be fair Pom, it does not say that it is changing the way we look at our sport and pushing boundaries as you suggest (though it is clearly pushing boundaries for you). In fact nowhere in the description does it even say it’s a rollerblading video, doesn’t even mention rollerblading. It says “behind the scenes look at … the FILMING.”

    It says it’s a full length video but not explicitly a rollerblading video. Does this mean it shouldn’t be on rollernews, it should be on some artsy “hipster” blog? No. It is a look at a part of our sport, not the sport itself.

    Do you really sit down and watch, for example, “The making of Apocalypse Now” and then complain like bitch when you realize it has nothing to do the story of “Apocalypse Now”? Then I would imagine you would proceed to complain about how it has nothing to do with the movie and insist it should be segmented off entirely from the movie. Perhaps it belongs a hipster blog somewhere, but definitely not to be integrated with the final project of “Apocalypse now” as they are clearly entirely separate and have nothing in common with one another.

    Agree with Pom West completely, rollerbladers get so butt hurt over criticism. Grow up. Not everyone has to like everything, I personally think this video is try hard trash. But I like a lot of the non mainstream videos like the stuff from Sol Crew.
