This Monday, June 18, Zumiez is bringing the excitement of professional and amateur skateboarding to White Marsh Mall with the 12th annual Zumiez Couch Tour!
A complete skate park will be assembled in the mall parking lot, and at the strike of noon we’ll be showcasing the best local talent the Baltimore region has to offer in the Best Foot Forward amateur contest. The winner will be invited to the national Zumiez amateur competition where all of the Best Foot Forward winners from across the nation will compete to see who goes to the biggest stage of all, The Summer X-Games! You won’t want to miss this, so come out and support your favorite local riders.
Make sure you check out the attached video clip, featuring some of the best riding of 2011. It might be an “amateur” contest, but the skating is anything but!
Just before the Best Foot Forward final heat, the Girl Team professional skateboarders will be showing off their moves at 2pm with a skateboard demo and there will be live performances by musical acts “Conditions” and “Set Your Goals”, along with great prizes and giveaways. And yes, The Zumiez Couch tour is 100% FREE!!! Just show up and enjoy the free games, prizes, music, giveaways, skateboarding, and more!
