Recap: adidas Skate Copa at Louisville

Posted by Rob Meronek on Saturday, June 27, 2015

The 3rd Lair crew is going all expenses paid for a damn good skateboard time at The Berrics for the Skate Copa Global Finals in September!

3rd Lair Wins adidas Skate Copa Louisville

We get to work before the sun at all the adidas Skate Copa stops. From setting up sound to banners to the Boost Experience, there's a lot to get done before you hit the ground rolling. When we got here at 5:45am, there was a car full of kids just finishing skating. Then shortly after, another car full of skaters showed up. Amazing.
