A highlight of all tour stops is the 6th Annual Zumiez Best Foot Forward Am Contest Series 2012 Presented by BONES BEARINGS, a jam format contest that is "a matter of life and limb" for up and coming skaters.

Each Best Foot Forward stop includes a local open qualifier for the first 20 skaters to pre-register online at www.zumiezbestfootforward.com. The top amateur skater from each of the 19 Best Foot Forward contest stops will get airlifted with an all expense paid trip to the Zumiez Couch Tour's final stop in Bloomington, MN, to compete in the Best Foot Forward Finals on June 26th, 2012. The Top 3 finalists will win a trip to Los Angeles to film at famous skate spots, visit top brands' private skateparks and compete in the Hometown Heroes Finals at Summer X Games 18.
