5. Vantaa - 18.06.2022

At the 5th stop of the Best Foot Forward Tour the finnish weather just would not align with our plans.

Luckily however, the Terminaali360 skatepark in Espoo offered us not only a dry location on short notice but also an amazing indoor set-up.

Compared to our other stops the amount of participants was rather manageable. But 21 skaters from Finland showed an amazing level of skating and the atmosphere at the contest was amazing.

Another unique highlight of the day was the HELride Pool Jam!

3. Hamburg - 26.05.2022 + 4. Berlin - 28.05.2022

What a skate weekend!

This time there was not only one contest - we took advantage of the extended weekend and added a second tour stop.

BERLIN and HAMBURG - it was an absolute honor.

HAMBURG:

The third tour stop in Hamburg at Allerfornia Skatepark was our biggest tour stop so far with 70 riders from 6 nations.

Even though the finale & the Cash4Tricks session unfortunately wasn’t doable, because of the rain - the good vibes weren’t spoiled and at the prizegiving the winners were celebrated to the fullest.

The team from Allerfornia Skatepark made a real festival out of our stop, so besides our contest there was also a great side program, including a graffiti workshop.

BERLIN:

Two days later, we visited the Skatehalle Berlin for our fourth tour stop. And once again, the boys & girls showed their skateskills. We welcomed 60 riders from 7 nations to Berlin this year.

After an incredible final, there was a huge Cash4Tricks session at the double set. After a successful contest day - the participants and spectators ended the day with a skate video premiere in the skate yard of the skate hall.

1. Vienna - 30.04.2022:

The Best Foot Forward Europe Tour celebrated its 2022 Tour debut on 30th of April at the Copa Beach Plaza skatepark in Vienna. With sunny weather, good vibes and a top skatepark, the skaters got the crowd going.

With many familiar faces as well as many new riders, the tour kick-off with 52 riders from 7 nations became a true spectacle.

Another highlight was the very successful Cash4Tricks session with banger tricks on the stair set. You had to be quick, because with so many creative tricks, the money was quickly spent.

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.
