The Element Make It Count North American Finals took place this past weekend up in the Sequoias at Element Skate Camp. Finalists from all over North America came to the Redwoods to throw down for an all expenses paid skate trip to Barcelona, Spain. The level of skating was insane: literally all of these dudes had won contests to compete, so we were witnessing the best of the best. Hammers were landed, boards were broken, a couple dudes got taken out by slams (Hope you're healing up ok Heroki and Jay), and we had one hell of a contest. Judging a contest with a level of skating this high isn't an easy task, and our judging panel (which consisted of the Element Team) literally argued over who deserved the grand prize trip to Barcelona for over an hour; voting, re-voting, convincing, and finally deciding. When all was said and done, we all agreed that Eli Williams shredded the hardest overall, and deserved the trip to Barcy... We can't wait to see what he puts together out there!
Here are the official standings:
1st - Eli Williams (Global Finals)
2nd - Austin Thongvivong
3rd - Tim Casey
