Copenhagen: CPH PRO

I recently went on a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark. There were a few skate contests going on a Beauty & The Beast tour stop and many many all nighters. You can go to every other skate site right now and find footage of the finals and best trick, which gets old after the third time you see Malto nollie flip the hip. So I tried my best to capture a slightly different perspective. Hope you enjoy.

Oh I also recently caught up with Copenhagen and sat her down for a little Q&A.

Me: So Copenhagen, loved my time there! Can you explain yourself to someone who has never visited you?

Copenhagen: Awh thanks, you can call me CPH for short. Well I’d describe myself as sunny and very attractive. I don’t really sleep much. I think I have a drinking problem and all that stuff. I eat really well though. I spend all my money because my currency is hard to understand.

Me: Interesting. Wow! Did you enjoy the company from all the skaters last week?

CPH: Most certainly! They shred! Hey, sorry, I’ve gotta hop on my bike and go, there’s a futbol game at the pub and a pint with my name on it. See ya soon?

Me: Yes, hopefully! Take care
