Stay tuned to skateboarding.com for Copenhagen coverage all next week.
70,000-dollar purse, Beauty & The Beast demos, and plenty of live music slate DVS' CPH 2010 to be the best event yet.
The fourth annual DVS Copenhagen Pro is drawing near and this year's events schedule is shaping up to be the biggest and best on record.
As usual, the CPH Pro is offering the largest prize purse in Europe with this year's purse topping out at 70,000.00 US.
"After four years of producing this event, the DVS CPH Pro is really beginning to take on a life of it's own," says Podium Distribution VP Tim Gavin. “We’ve worked very hard on helping this event organically evolve into the number one skate contest in Europe and it's great to see people coming out to support it."
While the CPH Pro Contest is the main focus, this year's CPH Pro is offering all types of new attractions that will add serious fuel to the family-style party that rages throughout the event's five-day schedule.
