When each Make It Count Finalist is competing for an all-expenses paid trip to Barcelona, to film a street part and potentially land a spot on the Element Team, you better believe they're giving it everything they’ve got. But where would the North America Finals take place? At the Element YMCA Skate Camp in Sequoia National Park, the perfect breeding ground for gnarliness.
Congratulations to Jordan Sharkey for winning the European finals of this year's Element Make It Count.
The contest took place over 4 days around Bilbao, Spain. The Element judges were Ross McGouran and Jaakko Ojanen.
The Element Make It Count Contest home-stretch was in full swing, as skatepark locals put their bodies on the line to win their respected stops. Once the carnage was clear Element selected finalists from Chicago and Denver, rewarding them with a free-trip to the North America Finals at Element YMCA Skate Camp to compete for an all-expenses paid trip to the Global Finals in Barcelona, Spain.

See you all in Bilbao for the Europe finals. There will be only one winner that represents Europe in the Global Finals!
For our first Element Make It Count of the season we hit Nyjah's skatepark in San Clemente before heading to Atlanta with Evan Smith. In both stops local rippers bring the heat in hopes of making it to the North American Finals. But that's not all they're hucking for... The winner of the North America Final will advance to the Global Finals for a chance to win an all expenses paid street skating trip to Barcelona, where they will film an entire street part released on The Berrics!
Boston and Eugene play host to the Element Make It Count contest. The stakes are high as locals go all-in to advance to the North America Finals at Element Skate Camp. From there winners will compete for a free-trip to Global Finals in Barcelona, to film a video part and skate with the Element Team.
