The Element Make It Count Contest series is a global search for new, undiscovered talent that focuses on street skating. Each Global Finalist won an all expenses paid trip to Barcelona with the Element team. While most skaters have months, these guys had ONE WEEK to film parts in the streets! The public watched and scored each part, and although everyone ripped, in the end it was Marcio Roberto who tallied the highest score! Congratulations Marcio! And welcome to the Element Family! Stay tuned for next year!

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.
