La Fete Skate Part

This is the story of 2 guys seeking the urban adventures of Copenhagen. Though skateboarding has become a sport and part of the Olympics we are the ones who still see this as a lifestyle. We look at the city from another perspective – we count the steps of the stairs, we check the height of benches and we make a note of every single detail in a certain spot

This is the City from our perspective – this is the life we live – this is La Fete

Malmo Vans Park Series

“We headed over to Malmo to witness some of the best skaters from all around the word destroying the new Kroksbäck Skatepark. 

The event like this feel more like a family gathering than an actual competition; you get to see your favorite skater shred and hang out with your friends. Here’s a short photo recap from Jose Francisco Morros, while I was busy trying to get some decent video for the insta cyberspace.

Thanks for the good time Vans Park Series !

There was a really great turnout this year for CPH OPEN.
This year’s contest showcased some more of Copenhagen’s awesome spots
but between the mind destroying level of skateboarding and mind expanding mushrooms,
we can’t really tell you what happened – good thing we got photos! Check ’em out here! -ADB
