Make It Count 2017 Top 5 Finalists
Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who submitted videos for Element Make It Count!
This year, Element Make It Count changed its format from a traditional nation wide skate series competition to a new online format.
Switching the series from parks to online, Element was able to widen the overall reach to find the next best street skater and the response over the last couple of months has been insane!
To enter the competition, participants had to post their best 1 minute of street footage to Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #ElementMakeItCount, tag @elementaustralia and to include their home city.
The Element Australia and New Zealand skate teams judged the best top 20 submissions and narrowed it down to the top 5 - who will all be flown to the Gold Coast next week for a finals event at the Precinct skate shop to decide the overall winner who will score the all expense paid trip to Barcelona!
Each finalist will also be welcomed into the Element family and put on flow to receive Element boards for a year!
Submissions closed on August 15th and since then it's been a tough couple of days siphoning through the video entires, but the teams have come to a democratic and unanimous decision.
Here's your Top 5 Element Make It Count Finalists for 2017 (in no order)
