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
We knew this would be a recurring theme this year. Johnny Law stopped the terror van again. This time it was at stop number four in Gainesville, FL. The conversation went a little like this:
The tour encountered rains in the Southeast, but that didn't stop local rippers from Virginia Beach, Durham, Gainesville, Orlando and Atlanta from throwing down at the first five stops on the 2013 Zumiez Best Foot Forward tour. Winners were crowned, denim vests and gift cards were issued to the worthy and everyone had a great time. Our man Dalton Dern, winner of the Orlando stop models the symbol of excellence, the highly coveted denim vest.
Well, we knew it would happen. We just didn't think it would happen on the first day of tour. If you wrap the van with sketchy artwork and the words "98 Days of Mayhem" the cops are going to be curious, right? Pat prepares his license, registration and explanation. Let's hope Johnny Law doesn't want to get a look at the van crew at all 30 stops this year.
