The second year of adidas Skate Copa just wrapped up, this year with five extra international stops making 10 total shop teams that all came to Los Angeles for the Global Finals at The Berrics. 3rd Lair destroyed it this year. After that amazing day of ripping skating, A$AP Ferg came and did a show that blew everyone away before calling it a night.

Since we created the series back then, 249 shops and 1,021 skaters on those teams have ripped at 15 stops, including five new global ones in 2015. Seeing the power and influence that local shops around the world still have in these big time days of modern skateboarding is a beautiful thing. If you think skateboarding is at all ruined, you are paying attention to the wrong things.
