Best Foot Forward Europe Tour

It’s official! After an incredible tour last year and a wild Winners Trip to Tampa AM in the US, we are back for the 2024 season and ready to kick off once again. There are many reasons to be stoked, for sure!

Europe’s Biggest Amateur Skate Tour

Since 2017, the Best Foot Forward tour has grown to become the biggest amateur (AM) skateboarding competition tour in Europe. This is THE place for rising European skaters to show their talents and get the crowds stoked with their tricks. Here, young talents can connect with other great skaters and brands from all over Europe.

The Format

The competition will run with a “Jam format”, which means 2 skaters from mixed categories will ride simultaneously in a 2-minute heat. It's important to note that the two riders will be judged individually and not against each other.

There is no age limit, so everyone is welcome to compete as long as you are not considered a “Pro” as this is strictly an AM contest. The tour will include Women, Men, and Groms categories, and each category will have a podium of its own. Apart from many awesome prizes from Blue Tomato and our partners, the top three overall winners from each stop of the men’s category, along with the top overall winner of each stop from the women’s category, will be invited to compete at the 2024 Finals for the main prize. Blue Tomato will cover all the expenses for the competing riders during the Finals weekend. You will just need to take care of the travel costs!

About the Finals

Last year, we had a complete blast during the Finals weekend in Berlin. We kicked things off with a mini ramp in the hotel lobby (yeah, you read that right), a city tour with a hop-on hop-off bus full of skateboarders, a standing wave surf session, and a welcome dinner. Followed by skate sessions in various spots across the capital of Germany, multiple cash for tricks events, and, of course, The Best Foot Forward Finals 2023 competition.

After such an insane Finals Weekend in Berlin last year, we are completely fired up to announce the details for 2024, so mark your calendars:

Finals 2024 | September 12th – 15th | Berlin – Germany | Skatehalle Berlin | CONFIRMED

If you're still wondering why we’re so hyped about it, take a peek at the Aftermovie from the 2023 Finals Weekend in Berlin. And just a quick reminder - it will only get wilder.

The Prizes

As last year, we will make sure that all of the winners of the 2024 Tour will get an awesome reward for their crazy efforts!

Tampa AM Winners Trip 2023

Getting a free trip to Florida from a skateboarding contest is just amazing, super sick! It is a super cool prize! So yeah, shoutout to Blue Tomato and Best Foot Forward, haha!

Jonas Carlsson, 3rd Place BFF 2023, Winner of BFF 2022

The winners of the 2023 Finals - Tijmen Overbeek, Rocco Müller, Jonas Carlsson, and Weronika Choromanska made it out to the US to participate in Tampa Am and experience a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Florida. Despite the incredibly high level of skateboarding, Tijmen still managed to secure a 6th-place finish in the finals. After 3 days of contest mayhem, the Best Foot Forward team set out to skate the best street spots and skate parks in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Anna Maria Island. On top of that, they also went to play Topgolf, went on a sunset boat trip to see dolphins, skated in a private backyard setup with a swimming pool, and even went skimboarding. To sum up, they had an unforgettable time in the US.

Does this sound good to you? We promise you that this year, it will only get better! So don’t miss your chance and qualify at one of the upcoming Best Foot Forward tour stops!

Big thanks to our partners - without them, our tour wouldn't be possible!

This year, as always, our skateboarding tour wouldn’t be happening without our great partners, who made it possible and provided so many awesome prizes!

Best Foot Forward is an AM Contest. This means if you have a "Pro Board", or "Pro Shoes" or you participated in a pro category in an internationally known contest you are not allowed to enter the contest.
