The idea to create a new Copenhagen-video has been in the pipeline for several years, but was not seriously taken up in the late summer of 2011. Copenhagen has some exposure through the holding of CPH-PRO recent years with visits of various pro-skaters, and in this regard was interest to show the local tax arena.
Copenhagen taxes scene has changed greatly over recent years, with more and more skaters from across the country have moved to Copenhagen. Today it is hard to move around the city without encountering a skateboarder and skate scene now consists of people from near and far. All are to make skate scene in Copenhagen more versatile. It is therefore not difficult to gather a crew for a nice session, which quite often continues with a few street beers and music from Doctor (Martin Lee) ghettoblaster late into the night.
Looking at the past several years there has been lots of cool videos tax in Denmark: Flümers-videos, Curious projects from Michael "Red" Pedersen and Claus Juul and Street Machine promo are just to name a few. It is, however, a long time ago that there has been a really Copenhagen video, the latter was shown in the early 00s. It was with this in mind that we in the summer of 2011 certain us to throw ourselves into VoresKBH project.
It has not been that easy to get footage in the box. As everyone knows, the weather is not always good in Denmark. The few days, it's summer, it's quite an adventure like to be in Copenhagen, but 15.1 ° C, 257 mm and 621 hours was what respectively, the average temperature, rainfall and sunshine hours were over the summer in 2012. It has been the coldest summer in 12 years, it has been the næstvådeste summer for 12 years, and it has been one of the most sunshine poor summers in 10 years - not the best conditions to be skater or make a tax video.
We would by all means avoid the overexposed sigøjnerby Barcelona, and sponsor money should not be used on a weekend tour in a boring station wagon to the bowler, Egå Gymnasium or Aalborglona. We therefore started to run away from the Danish winter and take a trip to Abu Dhabi. With the support of Street Machine we got the opportunity to get two more tours respectively to London and Mallorca.
The theme of the video is Copenhagen. But the other cities provides a good contrast to Copenhagen, so you can see how different cities are from our own.
