The Mystic Cup at the Mystic skatepark on Stvanice Island, in the Czech capital Prague, is one of the greatest events in skateboarding- and has been for nearly 20 years now.
This is something worth celebrating.
In 1996 I climbed under the fence to witness Tom Penny, Donny Barley and Chris Senn tear up the beat- up old course. A lot has changed since then. Now the talent is mostly homegrown, but the atmosphere and organization continue to build, even after terrible flood damage in the past.
Even if you don’t like contests normally, this place is really something else. Just watch this David Chvatal summary and I’ll meet you there next year for the big 20!
