Zumiez Best Foot Forward is back for its 11th year! It’s currently the largest AM Skate Contest in the world and we are stoked to announce some big things this year! 

To start, we are hitting 40 stops in 2017. With the help of our partners across the oceans, we are pleased to extend the contest series to Europe & Australia

We also have some new additions to the Best Foot Forward crew this year. 

Patrick Melcher will be our contest announcer as usual!

Our judging staff will consist of; Mitch Schmidt, previous Best Foot Forward winner from Milwaukee and professional skateboarder, Vanessa Torres!   

The Berrics will also be with us the entire tour, documenting the contests throughout the summer, as we journey across the world! 

Among the many partners of the tour, we are stoked to be working with Exposure Skate, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering women through skateboarding. Exposure does amazing things for women in skateboarding and we are coming together to open the door to females competing in Zumiez Best Foot Forward. We will be taking the top 3 scores from the North American part of the tour and invite the best female skateboarders from Best Foot Forward, to compete in the Exposure Skate in Encinitas at the end of the summer! 

We will see you out there! Be sure to sign up for your stop!
