“Best of the West” is a series of 4 qualifier events and one final event taking place at Zumiez Skatepark:
“The contest will be held for the third consecutive year. And we thought it was time for a serious upgrade. The contestseries is organised by 4 cityconcils in association with Skatepark Zumiez (…) The citycouncils really want to involve the local scene in every contest, and we can’t disagree with them – we truly believe events like this keep skateboarding alive! (…) This is how it will work: There will be 4 qualification contests and 1 final. The qualification contests will take place in the cities of Menen, Roeselare and Brugge on a streetcourse provided by Rampaffairz (our family side project) and in Oostende in the existing skatepark “de Veiling”, which will be totally renewed by then. The final will take place in our homepark Zumiez. All cities are located in the far west of Belgium, so the name “Best of the West” can be taken very literally. The contest is divided in 2 categories: sponsored skaters and non-sponsored skaters… We ‘d like to give away 2000 euro in prizemoney and a bunch of awesome prizes for the non-sponsored category…”
