Zumiez 13th annual Couch Tour kicked off early May, here in Seattle. With over 6 hours of footage to sift though on each of these locations, we created Seattle, Denver, Houston and most recently, Chicago’s recap videos. Let’s just say there has been a lot of skateboarding being watched in the office these last few weeks. To see more about the Couch Tour, you can visit their website at http://www.zumiezcouchtour.com/

Be sure to turn on annotations and watch until the end of the video. We used these video’s to show how you can insert video thumbnails and place links to specific videos on Youtube. Instead of those annoying, randomly chosen video’s at the end of most Youtube uploaded videos, we were able to point viewers to specific, related videos.

Check out this recap of the Chicago stop of the 2013 Zumiez Couch Tour. The Chicago stop of the Couch Tour featured the Neff Headwear Skate Team, including Leo Romero, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Matt Bennett, Dakota Servold, Moose, Derrick Wilson, and Ryan Decenzo. The musical guests for the Chicago stop were Big Boi and Mod Sun.

The Zumiez Best Foot Forward Amateur Skateboarding Contest also took place at this event.
