Copenhagen Pro Open 2015: Day 1
Copenhagen Pro Open is such an amazing and unique skateboarding event that it is hard to describe it in any better way than - 'Just go there if you can to see it and experience it with your own eyes'.

2015 event was a 5-day non-stop celebration of skateboarding starting on Wednesday and finishing on Sunday afternoon. Competitions for both amateurs & pros, open air picnics and afterparties were all there fuelled by great weather and relaxed sunny atmosphere.
Lots of amateur & professional riders came together from all over the world to see their friends and skate amazing street spots of Copenhagen including a never before skated rail at the world famous Tivoli Gardens.
Ring of fire which turned into 'Heart on Fire' this year, bon fire, whole roasted pig, lots of local beer and heart shaped glasses - all traditional attributes of CPH Pro - were topped up with a refreshed indoor skatepark and a new DIY concrete built 'Triangle plaza' at the Refshalen island.
Rune Glifberg, Raven Tershy, Luan Oliveira, Ishod Wair, Yoshi Tanenbaum, Alec Majerus, Louie Lopez, Matt Berger and many many more were pushing it to the limit on daily basis at every single spot. Carlos Ribeiro took the overall win at the very final event at the 'Triangle plaza' followed by the all night party in front of the huge bon fire.
Sunday was a 'happy ending' with a water diving session from the 'Concrete wave' and a promised whole roasted pig by master chef Keld Aabjorn.
