Last year it was
Copenhagen Bowl. This year, The Copenhagen Open is shaping up to be something involving both ams and pros in a unique new format.
The good people of CPH Skatepark want to celebrate skateboarding by expanding the city's skate limits, every year creating new places to skate. Check out a tour of what we're in for this year as seen through the eyes of Shane O'Neill.
