Some of you might have seen a flyer saying we're at Hollywood Skate Park in Las Vegas tomorrow. Sorry for the confusion, we'll be at Skatecity. See you there.
The Best Foot Forward gang just got a whole lot bigger for Vegas... Almost Skateboard pro riders Daewon Song and Cooper Wilt will be at Skate City in Las Vegas, Nevada this Saturday May 18th to roll around, guest judge, and slap some HI FIVES. Last year, Vegas was insane, and we think this year will be even bigger. See you there!
The Best Foot Forward van has had a couple things playing non-stop on repeat this whole trip. On the tunes 1. Johnny Cash, 2. Rihanna, and 3. Kid Rock BUT on DVD, it's been one thing only, the new Cliché video Bon Voyage (purchase that bad boy HERE). We have been so hyped on this video we decided to pick up the phone and give Cliché a shout, and get some of the boys out to the next Best Foot Forward stop in Phoenix tomorrow 5/16. Pete Eldridge and Daniel Espinoza just jumped in the van, and will be rolling around the contest tomorrow and guest judging, so be on your A game PHX!
If you're going to be on the road touring the country for 98 days, you want a couple wild cards in the van to keep things live... Mystery Skateboards team rider Kyle Fredrick is the defintion of "wild card". Kyle will be riding shotgun with us for the next couple weeks, judging Best Foot Forward, skating his ass off, jumping off cliffs, and filming for his upcoming Mystery part. Welcome to the gang Kyle, GET IN THE VAN!
We have had some rough weather on the road this year, but couldn't have asked for a better day in beautiful Kansas City! Zered Bassett, Eli Reed, and Tom Remillard rode into town with us to represent Converse and kick it with the KC skate scene. After a day of insane skating, our boy Levi Pollard took the win, and stole the vest! We will see you at finals Levi!
For the Mayhem Van crew, it isn't all about setting up and judging contests, product tosses, and driving. Sometimes it is about stretching the legs, sessioning local spots all over the country and stacking footage.
The Mayhem Van hit Nashville, TN (aka "Music City") on May 2nd. Our man Eli Tennant came out victorious and will win a trip to the Zumiez Best Foot Forward Finals in July. He also goes home with the coveted denim vest. Eli beat out Joey George and Jake Wooten who were second and third respectively.
The Zumiez Best Foot Forward contest in Dallas has moved from Lively Pointe to The Pier Skatepark in Kennedale, TX to accomodate for weather.
It's here! Jump in the van and follow the gang as they hit Virginia Beach, Durham, Orlando and Gainesville. #bestfootforward13
