Recap: adidas Skate Copa at Portland

Posted by Rob Meronek on Saturday, April 25, 2015

adidas Skate Copa is an international Shop Team vs Shop Team contest where the winners get flown to The Berrics for the Global Finals. This stop in Portland involved both ledge destruction from Mark Suciu and wall jamming from the rest of the rippers like Brennan Boothe and Augie Johansen from all 20 of the shop teams that were in town for the event. Check Finals results here and Qualifiers results here. Get taste of how insane the Finals was on The Boardr's Snap Chat - @TheBoardr.

Jesse Lindloff was first in the overall results in Qualifiers. He destroyed it on this tight quarter. I always refer to this trick as the Thomas Morgan. I first saw him doing them on vert way back in the late 80's.

Right after the awards, the Boost the Bar is quickly assembled for an open Best Trick session. That's a late back big spin.

There always has to be one of these.
