Best Foot Forward is going into the next round!
Which means nothing less than awesome skate action, great vibes, and unforgettable memories. In addition, we can be quite proud to say, we came a long way since our very first Best Foot Forward Tour in 2017. More than half a decade of Europe´s biggest amateur skate tour and we are not planning on slowing down, for this year we are taking you to the greatest playgrounds in Europe once again. And to spice it all up a little, for the top 3 men and best women of each stop this year’s finals are going down in beautiful Berlin @ Skatehalle Berlin on the 30th of September 2023. Here you´ll have the chance to win a trip to Tampa and skate at the Amateur National Championships- the legendary Tampa Am.
Use the whole park.
2 riders/ heat
Judged separately - women, men, and kids can be in the same heat but will be judged according to their category.
The best 10 - 14 riders will advance to the finals. The same format here as in the Quali-run.
For women & kids the Quali-run is usually the same as the final. Therefore, there is only one run per person. If a wmn or "kid" (ranked as World Rookie Grom, 2009 & younger) is among the best 14, this person participates in the final.
