Before the actual contest we had some time to explore the city of Berlin. This spot is a memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe. The city of Berlin is rich with history.

Joscha Aicher and Daniel Ledermann killed it for SHRN Skate Shop. SHRN stands for So Hot Right Now and they were definitely heating things up. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to get them to the next round.

Everyone that competed in adidas Skate Copa Berlin looked like they had a good time.

We give three special prizes to skaters that stand out during the contest. Joscha Aicher and Daniel Ledermann had the highest scores of the day, but weren’t able to advance due to the low third score from their teammate. It was only appropriate to give them a special award.

Denny Pham destroyed the entire contest, and won the Boost the Bar Best Trick.
