Many of us are out here in Prague, Czech Republic, for Osiris’ annual contest The Osiris Experience. They chose the Czech capital this year and it’s the perfect place to skate, chill, and host a contest. We’ll be blogging as often as possible to keep you in the loop! Here’s our first offering from day one, nice and jetlagged:
