Photos From Best Foot Forward Contest

Posted on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 by Chris

Zumiez has been making SPoT a stop on their Best Foot Forward contest tour over the last handful of years, and this time they brought Dickies pro riders Vincent Alvarez and Ronnie Sandoval along to help out. As expected, the talent was next-level and Jake Yanko secured a number one spot by going huge and skating like a boss. Check out some highlights from the day.

Always a pleasure to hang out with Mitch from Skatelite. He was in town helping to run the Contest. See you at Am buddy!

Ronnie Sandoval basically destroyed the Concrete Course all by himself. He even helped dry the puddles after it rained. A true Professional. Nose grind over the Hole.
