Copenhagen Pro 2013 Kicks Off

Posted by Rob Meronek on Friday, August 2, 2013

There aren't many events out there that remind me of how we used to run Tampa Pro. Copenhagen Pro is one of those. It's just loose and chill with ripping skating, raging nightlife, and big smile hospitality. I've got a bunch of photos and sequences as usual.

Sox Watkins is the chief of the Carve Wicked crew. Say "Carve Wicked" in your best Euro accent, picture a shirtless backside slash, and you got a taste of the vibe.

Every time I hear Jeff Pang on the mic in Copenhagen, I think of years ago when he was getting super raw with the crowd from effects of the Tuborg tornado that assaulted his liver. He's just as entertaining without the booze talking, though.

The crowd is that thick all around the park. Not thick as in American thick, thick as in lots of people.

It's hot here. The entire crowd is shirtless except for the dude coming in with the finger.

Down the street, there's a Levis and Circus Circus Best Trick Contest going down combined with a bangin' party. That's Al Partanen on a backside boneless.

The last two times I've seen Chet Childress, I've also seen him full frontal naked. He kept his clothes on as far as I know today. That's a bluntslide into the bank.

Porpe's backside lipslides are like two wheeled backside powerslides.

Clements and Pang were on the mic banter on a scene looking like Florida.
