Copenhagen Open Results
A bowl session, AM comp, flaming hearts, the White Banks, Dream Spot, Meat Packing District, CPH Skatepark a multitude of parties and it still gets better and better.
The CPH Open held the last day of heavy hitting skating with 2 incredible sessions. The kind people of Tivoli Gardens, the world’s oldest amusement park, opened its doors for the last qualifying session to a bemused but stoked saturday lunchtime crowd. A sketchy run up and the tightest of landings didn’t stop a furious assault on the double set and kinked rail. To the sounds of a marching band and a roller coaster Yoshi Tanenbaum Tre, laser and 360 ollie flipped himself into semis held on Refshaleøen island. A 30 minute boat ride accompanied by a brass band hyped up skaters and the scene on the way to a sick island DIY spot where the top 5 from each comp over the last few days competed in the Semis to try and make Finals. Laid out in a triangle, the set up encouraged lines from the start and skaters who could hit everything were looking good for a shout of the money. Once the field was narrowed down each skater had 3 runs each of 2 laps of the park (going either way), with best run counting. The level of consistency for outstanding tricks is ridiculous and the talent of all the finalists was put up on a top shelf to display to a gawping, amped crowd.
