Ahead of this year’s global Skate Copa Court tour, adidas Skateboarding delivers a new video featuring Pro team riders Daewon Song, Tyshawn Jones and Dennis Busenitz, providing insight into the creative process and inspiration behind designing their signature “Blackbird” obstacles, which will serve as the centerpiece for select stops on the tour and will be included in the event’s adidas Blackbird Best Trick Contest.

The premiere events will feature team demos from the brand’s Pro team, an open skate shop jam for local teams, cash prizes, the aforementioned adidas Blackbird Best Trick Contest that offers additional cash prizes for the participating skate shops, and an open skate jam for pro riders, shop teams, and the local community to skate the one-of-a-kind court. Obstacles on the court will in turn boast custom artwork by hand-selected individuals from each city on the tour.

For a behind-the-scenes look at this year’s global Skate Copa Court, press play above.

Not NYC, not LA.
