Vert attack is the biggest Vert skateboarding contest of the year, people from all around the globe come together for a gathering unlike any other contest. It has been my dream to be able to go to vert attack ever since I had heard about it in 2009.

This year with the help from some of my sponsors I was able to afford a plane ticket for the contest on march 22-24, and I found a friend to stay with because I couldn't afford a hotel. Everything was going to plan until tragedy struck. My friend started having some re-occurring issues with his head from a concussion a few years back and he can no longer go.
I'm now facing a predicament, I have a plane ticket to the contest I have dreamed of going to for years but no place to stay and no money for a hotel. I have asked around but have had no success in finding a place to stay, this is my last resort for making this trip happen.
How I Will Use The Money
The money I am asking for will be allocated to a hotel for the duration of the 10 day trip which will cost about $1300 because of the last minute booking and help pay for a train ride from and back to the airport in Copenhagen$30 each way and lastly help with contest costs and food if I can reach the $1500 goal.
What This Means To Me
The past two years of my skateboarding career have been the best so far after recovering from a broken tibia and coming back stronger than ever. I have been putting all of my energy into my skateboarding. Being able to go to the most watched vert skateboarding contest of the year can really put me on the map in the skateboarding world.
Even if it's $1,$5,$10 or what ever you can do to help. It helps more than one could imagine and I want to give back to all of the people who support me in my endeavors. I don't have much but if you can donate money I can give you my time. I will extend an open invite to come skate my private backyard vert ramp, and if you have the want or need to learn how to skate on a vert ramp or at all I will provide skate lessons over the summer to anyone who can help me get to Vert Attack 2018.
