2011 WILD IN THE PARKS EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

If you weren't in Copenhagen last Saturday then check out the clip to get an idea of what went down at the Faelledparken! Volcom Stone celebrated the European Wild In The Parks Championships at that outstanding outdoor skatepark in the City of Copenhagen, Denmark. Some skaters from all over Europe gathered and spent the day with us to compete, but mostly have a good time, enjoy the layback and nice atmosphere of the city, party, meet the locals, and skate the parks and get some tricks down some sick street spots. What is fun about this contest is that it gathers plenty of people who qualified in their local WITP (Spain, Greece, Italy, Portugal, France, England, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Holland), not only the usual suspects you’ll find in every big summer comp, but also the local heroes and the up-and-coming shredders that you’ll see soon everywhere. This special mix is the recipe for an explosive contest, an amazing show and some good times. The jam sessions were wild and some ridiculous tricks went down. The weather was cooperating (skateboarding is stronger than the weather as the MC said), the burgers chiefs were on point, the local kids were amped all day and the scooter kids got to see how much fun you can get on a skateboard, and kids their age destroying the park.
