Name and where you from?
My name is Dustin Dattilio and I’m from Vergennes, Vermont
I’ve been skating for about 6-7 years
What’s your set up consist of?
Right now I ride any 8.25 deck I can find( currently its a 5Boro NYC deck), tensor trucks, Bones STF wheels, Bones bearings, Mob Grip
How did u get into skateboarding?
I saw some guys outside my house popping ollies and kickflips and really wanted to try it, so my mom bought me an Enjoi deck. I’d skate from spring until winter, and then snowboard until the snow melted and get back on my skateboard
Favorite spot to skate?
I really like to skate Bristol Skatepark. Our local high school also has a really fun gap
Best thing about skateboarding?
The freedom you have on your board and watching people progress
Worst trend in skateboarding?
The fact that companies that don’t belong in skateboarding are trying to get in on it because they see how much skateboarding has progressed
Any good skate stories where your like what the fuck just happened?
I really don’t have any cool stories about skating. When I was starting out, my friend was trying heelflips and got popsicled so bad that it split his sack. We couldnt drive yet, so he had to ride his bike back home with a torn sack. That kind of ruined heelflips for me
Whats your goto trick at any spot?
Casper flip for sure!
