In 2017 Zumiez Best Foot Forward series is the largest Am contest series in the world, expanding to more skate parks and more hometowns than ever before… 40 contests worldwide, 2 stops in Canada, 4 stops in Europe, and 1 stop in both Australia and Puerto Rico.
This year Zumiez will be giving one extra stop to all skateboarders from North America through the Podium Skate App. This will be the last chance to make it to the final event of the Zumiez Best Foot Forward Contest.
Here’s how it works, users upload one clip that includes their best uncut and unedited 30 to 45 second run in the streets or plaza style skate park. All submissions will be scored and ranked by Podium app users. From there, the top 15 submissions will then be judged by our panel of pro judges and down to the top 3 entries for prizes. The 1st place winner will be officially invited to compete in the Zumiez Best Foot Forward Finals.
