How does one tell a story that has already been told many times before? This year marked the 12th edition of the world-famous Winterclash, blading’s biggest core event, and at this point you know nothing compares to the Clash. The level of skating, the atmosphere, the insane parties: you have heard it all before, or were even lucky enough to experience it first hand!

What is left of the Winterclash for us to tell you about? How does one bring a fresh perspective on an over-exposed piece of blading history? Ever year, Be-Mag is facing the same challenge, and every year, we still manage to bring you both entertaining & enlightening updates from the event: with 5 photographers on the spot this year, here is our take on Winterclash 2016!

French photographer and Belgium resident Quentin Lagache is no stranger to the hazy, drunken atmosphere of the Area 51 skatepark, but this year he managed to bring his camera along and shoot a great selection of pictures that capture most of the event, from the warm-ups all the way into the last tricks of the finals! Welcome to Eindhoven, welcome to Winterclash everyone!
