CPH Open - Berlin 2018

From August 9-12, skateboarders from all parts of the world took Berlin by storm. It was an epic saga of top tier skateboarding, secret spot rushes, late nights at the club and canal-side partying.

Copenhagen Open is much more than your standard and somewhat stale contest in a fluorescent-lit grey arena or warehouse. They've mastered the balance of turning a major international contest into something that's light hearted and interactive for every skateboarder who attends regardless of age or skill. For that, we commend them for throwing one of the best contests to ever happen. Cheers!

We actually skipped day three because we were too hung over but we absolutely caught the wrap party.
