Best Foot Forward Tour Europe
Also in 2018 we are planning another Best Foot Forward Tour. All infos will be published here soon.
For the last ten years, Zumiez has searched for the best and most promising amateur Skateboarders to help them start a career as Pro Skateboarders. This summer, for the first time, Blue Tomato is hosting four European stops of the tour. The Best Foot Forward tour can be a kick start for a professional career in Skateboarding.
The four stops in Berlin, Cologne, Innsbruck and Zürich/Winterthur are as diverse as the riders themselves. The contest is open to female and male skaters of all ages and without any entry fee.
For the first time, Blue Tomato is offering European skaters the chance to compete in an international contest and prove themselves to the world.
OPEN Qualifier (JAM Format)
Heats of three will be drawn and the three contestants per heat have three minutes to compete against each other. When all the heats are finished, the top nine scores advance to the finals.
FINALS (JAM Format)
The nine best riders from the Qualifier will be separated into three heats and will again compete for three minutes each. The top three scores win.
BEST TRICK (15 Minute open Jam)
On top of the main contest, there will be a Best Trick session.
The winner from every stop receives an all-expenses paid trip to the Zumiez Best Foot Forward Finals in the USA, exposure to the industry brands, shopping vouchers from Blue Tomato and prizes from the tour sponsors. The contestant that place second and third will also receive prizes from the tour promoters.
Overall top three finalists in the USA will win an all-expenses paid one-week road trip together with THE BERRICS including filming sessions at famous skate spots, access to the top private skate parks, exclusive experience from industry leading brands and their top pros, sponsorships and much more.
Many winners of the past years have reached the top of World Skateboarding. Skaters like Jack Olsons, Alec Majerus and Chris Wimer have won the Best Foot Forward Tour. Two of the most successful winners are Tom Asta and Ishod Wair, who are now competing in the top class of the Street League.
These were the tour stops in 2017
As soon as we are finished with the planning we will put all further information online here. Looking forward to a cool event tour in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
