How do you explain to someone that you're instantly unmarketable and done with any chances of any kind of legit career in skateboarding if you try to claim "pro skateboarder" status with nothing to back it up? I had a hard time doing that this weekend while regulating who can and can't enter Copenhagen Pro.
I almost got knocked out while I was sitting in the hotel lobby. Some guy was super pissed that I didn't let his rider in the Pro Contest. The hotel staff tried to calm him down but he just kept on yelling at me. He said, "Just take the $150 and let him enter the Contest!!" If only it were as simple as money. Here's the full story along with some photos and video: Copenhagen Pro 2009 Weekend
. Thanks to all the nice people of Copenhagen along with DVS for another super fun year of great skating and lots of new and old friends.
