If you’ve been before, then you’ll know not to miss it – if you haven’t, consider yourself told! CPH Open 2017 is now officially announced and taking place from July 19th-23rd. It’s pretty much the best event of the skateboarding year and seems to only get better, check out Thrasher’s half hour video from last year’s event featuring loads of familiar faces for confirmation! Then scroll down for this year’s schedule.

For a more UK-centric view of what went down, check out our CPH Open 2016 Blog for photos of Jordan Thackeray, Sox, Alex Hallford, Dead Dave and more alongside extended ranting about back pain…
