DVS’ Third Annual CPH Pro Sets Sail For Valhalla

For the third consecutive year, skateboarders from all over the map will descend on the Scandinavian city of Copenhagen for three days of skateboarding madness, beer funneling, and all the other forms of Viking revelry that go down during DVS’ CPH PRO.

Once again, skate park engineer Brent Kromuler was contracted to produce an expanded and totally new course for this year’s event. With the vert contest cancelled, more money will be allocated toward the street contest prize purse now set at $50,000. Once again the contest experts at SPoT Light Productions will be in charge of microphone antics and good times management.

“CPH is inspired by some of the classic skate contests of the past,” says DVS’ Tim Gavin. “It’s skateboarding done our way—not the glitz and glam of the other jump ramp influenced sh*t!”

In honor of its third annual CPH contest DVS has created a limited run of CPH Rico CT shoes featuring artwork from seminal Copenhagen tattoo parlor, Le Fix. The shoe will be available during the contest at five shops in Copenhagen including iLove, Bobby’s, Sidewalk, Dark Blue, and Street Machine.

The CPH Pro 2009 will take place at the CPH skate park in Copenhagen, Denmark on the June 26, 27, and 28. There will be a live web broadcast of the contest hosted by Tackyworld that will be viewable on dvsshoes.com/skate during the following dates and times:
