CPH in footage
Copenhagen has been going off for the last weeks, with skateboarders descending from across the globe to wreak havoc on its many spots and skateparks. Fire, death races, wanton bike destruction, Rune at Faelladparken, Christiania every night, jump ramps into the sea. The final jam was properly finalised by Carlos Ribeiro stoking the crowds at the Triangle with a switch flip back noseblunt, which looked scarily easy for him. More edits will undoubtedly appear over the next couple of weeks (I'm placing bets that my one will have the most drunk Welsh people in it), but for now click through the next few pages for a glimpse of what's been going down at the Copenhagen Open...
Bru Ray in Malmo and Christiania
These guys were hitting it hard before the event even got started - Fernando's kickflip into the Wonderland roll in is savage! A lot of time has been spent at the bowl over the last week.
Day 1 at Faelladparken (Ride Channel)
The majority of skaters were still feeling fresh at the beginning of the week, which meant gnar levels were high at Faelladparken. The street course got destroyed, Raven, Rune and Beckett tore apart the snake run and the 'heart of fire' offered night time entertainment until it collapsed.
Faelledparken (The Boardr)
More from day one, get familiar with your new favourite skaters Kevin Baekkel and Yoshi Tanenbaum.
Day 2 in the streets (Ride Channel)
Things took to the streets on Thursday, with a couple of ridiculously good spots that wouldn't exist anywhere else in the forms of the White Banks (designed by an architect with a skate background) and the SEB bank big stairs. Imagine a bunch of skateboarders trying to organise a skate jam down a double set in the Square Mile of London? You'd be laughed out the room, or hung, drawn and quartered. I love Copenhagen. Things finished at a ledge/slappy curb set up by the water, before drunkeness occured.
Day 3, comp and death race at the CPH Skatepark
If it says death race, that means you should probably watch it. The surface of the indoor park looked pretty treacherous, adding to the levels of death, but Kevin Baekkel still managed to go really, really fast to win it.
Day 4 at Tivoli and the Triangle (The Boardr)
Again...where else would you be able to organise a skate comp down a double set inside the oldest theme park in the world? Things finish off at The Triangle, a DIY track recently built on an idyllic island setting to which we bought booze and fire. The level of skating on display was insane, get watching for an update on how ridiculously good Carlos Ribeiro is - more of which on the next page...
