The HiBeams team had the chance to travel to Buffalo on Saturday for the Zumiez Best Foot Forward skate competition. This was a great event to watch; we were able to experience the skate culture first hand and meet some amazing people.
We saw many skaters give their all in this competition, some of them as young as 12 years old. We had the chance to talk to with many these skaters and saw their collective passion for skating.
We were able to also talk to some of the spectators and understand what skating meant to them. We even met some fellow entrepreneurs, one selling custom hand-painted boards and another selling completes. We even had the chance to talk to Team Converse pro-skater Tom Remillard.
Congratulations to everyone who competed and to the winners of the competition. It was amazing seeing all the great tricks that were shown off during the competition. Next stop: New York City!
