The new CREATURE video is breathtaking. Fearless riders on incredible huge spots.

With all the CPH coverage dropping we present to you one last recap to close it off and that is the PLACEMAGPAULE photo recap.

Contrary to last year almost the whole PLACE staff traveled to arguably the best city in the world. But even though we were all in the same city, festival rules applied, which meant that within moments we lost each other and started doing our own thing. We all ended up at different events and safe for a few moments only saw each other at the plethora of parties that the CPH Open is host to.

It seemed everybody had a great time at every single event but our highlight was definitely the Levi’s event which looked rained out at first but ended up saving our lives by offering us a boat ride, good food, cold drinks and a very hot but healthy sauna experience!

We wish we could say “See you next year!” but the organizers felt that it was time for a break. So we will end it by saying, enjoy Paule’s photo recap and see you at the next Copenhagen Open

We were a little hesitant at first but this sauna van boosted morale to unprecedented levels, from now on we would like to see this van at every contest.

Levi’s Skateboarding is always supporting DIY projects around the globe and most of the time these clips see their release accompanied by a new collection. Seeing that it is time for the spring 2017 collection to drop the guys went out to Detroit to skate, build and hang out, the whole thing turned out pretty good.

Levi’s has a strong tradition in workwear as such it is not surprising that they support skate scene by building DIY spots. In this mini docu the Levi’s team traveled to Christchurch in New Zealand. in 2011 the town was hit by an earthquake that destroyed large parts of the city and its skate spots in the process.

Lance Mountain hat einen Kurzfilm gedreht, in dem der “Nike SB Pool Service” einer in den Urlaub verreisenden Familie einen Pool in den Garten baut. Doch natürlich wird dieser nicht übergeben, bevor er ordentlich geshreddet wurde. Mit dabei sind Grant Taylor, Alex Olson, Peter Hewitt und Al Partanen.
