The 5th annual Zumiez Best Foot Forward AM Contest Series presented by Bones kicked off in a spot we’ve never been to before, Cream City Skatepark in Milwaukee, Wis. This place is super fun, nothing too big and gnarly, wide-open and has some of the best graffiti and mural art anywhere. The scene up in Wisconsin is pretty legit, home of Greg Lutzka, Jon Allie, Dave Mayhew, Tyrone Olson, Dan Nepscha, the vertical-vampire Darren Naverette and a slew of others coming up.
Locals like Mitch SSchmitt, Zach Kral, Jason Siebert, Brandon Wilson, Max Murphy and Devin Cain all skated well, but John “Ozzy” Oskvarek drove up from Illinois to take the hardware, prizes and an all-expense paid trip to Minneapolis for the 2011 BFF Finals. Ozzy landed a big switch flip, kick flipped into anything frontside and even landed a tre-flip 50-50 down the hubba! Matt Nordness had great flow like you would expect from someone that skates this park as much as he does, and he got dirty with a fakie back lip, fakie 5-0, back 180 nosegrind and a switch back lip to get 2nd place. Timmy Johnson got third with tricks like a nollie heel lipslide and a tailslide bigspin out.
