A couple of weeks ago Adidas asked us if we wanted to be involved in Das Days NYC – a full week of Adidas events, parties, Jaeger shots, and skate jams across NYC. Never one to say no to an open bar, we hit them with that “ok sounds good” text and ended up fully producing City Copa – a giant skate jam with surprise pop-up skate obstacles across New York, Williamsburg and LES.
With no permits or rules, the event was like an illegal skate safari: hitting makeshift spots, wearing dumb hats, and paying children to huck over inflatable alligators. And just to make it more hectic, we asked our friends Fred Gall and Weckingball to be our nomadic leaders a.k.a. chief trash talkers.
Lucky for us it all worked out (it always does) and cops only showed up at the very end, when we were lighting stuff on fire and generally being rowdy (and deserving) morons. We hope everyone who came had a good time witnessing some proper skating and light degeneracy, and if you didn’t, well… there’s always next year.
