Day two of the Copenhagen Open sees first a ledge session and then a flatbar and jump ramp jam covering the main events, but I find myself much more tempted when I hear of a big session going down at Faelladparken followed by Hullet DIY. Having missed the previous day’s park session because of the rain – and knowing I would get better photos in a less frenzied media environment – I make the executive decision to head to the jewel in Copenhagen’s concrete crown and meet up with the crew (after a solid period of getting lost, despite aiming for what is pretty much the biggest park in the city).
The session gets going fast, with Jordan Thackeray, Ben Cook and Luke Jarvis all getting stuck into the pool coping, so naturally once I’ve shot a couple of photos I get involved too. This puts an end to my skating for the majority of the rest of the week when I manage to frontflip to flat, landing on my back and managing to both bruise and tear one of my lower back muscles – stoked. If you came to this blog wanting to see a list of my shortcomings, my lack of a sense of direction or a particularly high level of coordination, I guess I’m fulfilling those expectations admirably.
