Best CPH open memory / story ? In 2009, I was wandering out of Christiania at 4am, as I passed by the Wonderland bowl I heard someone skating. I head in to check it out and I run into my old friend Ben Schroeder. I had no idea he was in town, we where both surprised to see each other there. We roll a joint, drink some beers and skate a bit. I am rolling around on Ben’s board (it is fucking huge! with old Gullwing trucks) I was getting comfortabke and I whipped thru the corners by the roll in, I whip out so fats, put my arm down to catch myself, my head whip lashes against my shoulder and blow my shoulder out. I crawl out of the bowl and hand Ben back his board “that one fucked me up!”. Ben looks right at me and says “you ride Bens board, you slam like Ben”. I had to call Zered and Jimmy Cao to rescue me.
