After three months, over two hundred skaters, six competitions, four states and two countries; the Australian Element Make It Count regional finals kicked off in Geelong at The Park on Saturday 20th of August. The last stop on the Make It Count series saw some of the best talent from all over. Each competitor had ten minutes in a jam style format to do their best tricks based on difficulty, creativity and overall impression. Everyone dropped hammers in the finals but Noah Nayef was the man to come out on top dropping a 270 boardslide down the 9 stair set. Noah is 14 years of age and is the youngest regional finalist in the entire Element Make It Count series worldwide. He joined 22 other finalists last September with the Element Pro team and had a trip of a lifetime!

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.
