G-SHOCK PARTNERS WITH ZUMIEZ ON 11th ANNUAL BEST FOOT FORWARD AMATEUR SKATE CONTEST SERIES

G-SHOCK To Serve As Official Timekeeper For Multi-City Competition

Now in its 11th year, the Zumiez Best Foot Forward AM Skate contest series teams up with Casio G-SHOCK, as the world’s largest amateur skateboarding competition makes its heralded return. On August 26th, the free to enter contest heads to Los Angeles, inviting local amateur skaters to demonstrate their best skateboarding skills and tricks at Rosemead Skatepark.

As the official timekeeper of the Best Foot Forward series, G-SHOCK will count down each participant’s three-minute runs, with previous Best Foot Forward winner Mitch Schmidt and professional skateboarder Vanessa Torres evaluating and voting on the best skaters.

Registered skaters will have the chance to compete for coveted prizes, including a G-SHOCK gift bag and iconic DW5600 watch, a $500 Zumiez gift card, and other prizes from additional contest sponsors.

The first place winner of the Zumiez Best Foot Forward AM Skate contest in Los Angeles will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Zumiez Best Foot Forward Finals, where they’ll have a chance to compete to win the ultimate grand prize: an all-expenses-paid trip to famous skate spots to film state-of-the-art skate videos, all-access to top private skate facilities, exclusive experiences and more.
