In what should be the template for future city-based skate events, last weekend’s CPH Open contest took place over a series of locations dotted around the municipality.
Vying with Malmö for the title of most skateboarding-progressive city in the world, Copenhagen opened its arms to skateboarding this year to an extent never seen before. From downtown qualifiers to skatepark deathmatches, to best-trick contests in theme parks and finals on an island DIY spot, we think that this has to rate as among best weekend events of the modern skateboarding era.
That fact is reflected in the turnout of pro skaters that you wouldn’t normally expect to see at a straight ‘contest’ event. That is worthy of note.
Large knucks to Simon Weyhe, Ryan Clements and all involved in the background as ever.
