Finals in Innsbruck
The skate weekend in Innsbruck and the Best Foot Forward Finals 2022 were a true skate festival! Here's a recap of what we were up to during the weekend:
Recap Friday, 30.09.2022
On Friday morning a photo and video session on the legendary Landhausplatz was on the agenda. In the afternoon we went on to the Marktplatz. We set up a mini ramp and had a sick Cash 4 Tricks session accompanied by an incredible sunset. The more than 40 riders showed why they deserved to be there for the finals - technical tricks were combined with a lot of style.
Recap Saturday, 01.10.2022
Although it rained heavily in phases on Saturday, we braved the weather and celebrated the Best Foot Forward Tour 2022 with a Grand Finale in the skate hall in Innsbruck. More than 40 riders battled it out for the title, prize money and the chance to participate in the qualification of TampaAm in November 2022.
We expected a high skate level, but what the participants delivered exceeded even our expectations! The atmosphere in the hall was amazing and the vibes in our Brand Village really good. The action from the skate hall could be watched live on a huge LED screen outside! It was a celebration of the skateboard scene and a real party.

Recap: Winnerstrip USA 2022
Together with the winners of 2021 the journey started directly to sunny San Francisco USA. Once there, everyone grabbed their skateboards and started exploring different Skateparks and iconic Skatespots around the city. The crème de la crème of the whole trip were the visits to: Thrasher, Deluxe, Brailleskate, NHS INC. and a trip to Los Angeles to the Berrics. Apart from skating, what made this trip so memorable were the nice dinners, the conversations, and the new people they met.
