It’s only been within the last few years that we’ve noticed enough crossover in surfing and skating that the idea of a collaboration like this was real. And we’re not talking about maneuvers, grabs or any of that political mess. We just noticed ourselves admiring the ethos and mentalities that skateboarding cherishes. They reminded us of a better time in surfing. A less selfish time in surfing.
Thanks to Monster Energy and the amazing Simon Weyhe, Camilla Jane Lea and William Frederiksen (founders of the CPH PRO for inviting and giving us the opportunity to attend The Copenhagen Pro, a truly unique cultural skateboard experience in the beautiful city of Copenhagen, Denmark. We made this film about it.
Starring Ishod Wair, Shane O'Neill, Peter Ramondetta, Arto Saari and many more.
