Last summer, we sat down with fresh-outta-highschool Brett Weinstien for an interview. Brett is an 18 year old skater from Buffalo Grove, a suburb just north-west of Chicago. His love for skateboarding reveals itself through his actions and accomplishments at such a young age. Long live Cartman.
Cruising the loop in the heart of the city or riding through the winter at indoor parks, Brett maintains his flow, which sets him apart from most midwest skaters. He has an amazing vision for urban skating, pushing fast through the city while composing a structured easiness for good tricks in tight lines. Once you see this kid skate you will believe in urban innovation for Chicago skateboarding.
“I love the fact that we can go to the city and no one has touched it. The most perfect spots ever.”
This could be the reason that Brett is amongst the few American skateboarders to get hooked up with shit from Pontus Alv’s dope skate company, Polar Skate Co., based in Sweden.
“Polar is killin it, I respect the shit out of Pontus and everyone that cares as much about their own skate community as he does. Its only going to keep getting better so be ready.”
We are always down to see what Brett is working on next because his motivation and passion to go out and skate is endless. Look out for his part in Mark Dunning’s new full length video, a two part focus on deep dish homies skateboarding through New York and Chicago. Dunning gives a very refreshing view of what skateboarding can do to beautify mundane objects around both cities. You can also peep Brett’s features in the Deep Dish Chicago’s slices.
