 Element Make It Count Finals 2015



Sequence from Danny McCourt’s Stupid Bloody Tuesday Manchester Blog.



So remember the Element Make It Count qualifiers that where held in our very own rain city of Manchester? Also remember Black Sheep Family member Jiri Bulin absolutely smashing it and coming out in first and claiming his all expense paid trip out to Bilbao for the Element Make It Count 2015 finals?


Get your watch on below for what seemed to be the perfect setting and idea for the final. Basically Element Europe chose to use the amazing skate spots on there doorstep and judged the finals over 3 days worth of sessions rather than your set standard skate park run format. As you’ll see in the footage below along with getting to stay at the Element Skate house with BBQ’s, natural lake to swim at and private mini ramp to session the actual comp was a mellow affair which in turn produced some amazing footage.

Massive props to Jiri aka George for killing it on all three days and in our eyes thought he should of won with the footage he put out.

Also thanks to Element Skateboards for putting on another banging event and look out for the US finals to be held at the Berrics and also Nyjah’s private TF.

Element Make It Count Uk 2015 Edit

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015




A couple of Saturdays ago on the 9th of May, Manchester’s own pump cage was the place to host this years Element Make It Count competition. It’s a great competition that has been running for some years now and always seems to bring out the best in everybody that attends, from people helping out, to the entering process ( one canned food item was required for entry and all food items were donated to local food banks) and to the overall standard of skating! The competition is set out all over the world to see the latest talents that skateboarding has to offer and for Element it also spreads its word  and belief of social awareness and positivity. Once again there was a superb turn out ( like there always is for events here in Manchester! ) and throughout the three different age categories the skating was just as impressive! A big shout out to everyone who turned up, took part, helped out and made the day as good as it was!

Biggest congratulations go to our very own Jiri “George” Bulin who smashed it all day and was crowned overall winner at the end! Bagging himself a trip to Italy and a spot in the European finals for the chance to go to California to compete for Element sponsorship at Nyjah’s park!  Well done pal and good luck!

Element Skateboards Make It Count Competition

Thursday, April 16th, 2015


Element skateboards have been killing the skateboard game since 1992. It’s a company I grew up with and I couldn’t be more stoked that they are still going strong. Probably stronger than ever, the team consists of some more than familiar faces like Chad Tim Tim, Nyjah Huston, Chad Muska, Ray Barbee, Mark Appleyard, Bam Margera, Madars Apse and loads more. So over the past few years they have been holding the Element Skateboards Make it Count Competition which has been a great success.

It’s a series of amateur skateboarding events that is put on throughout the world to seek out the latest talent skateboarding has to offer. It also promotes the Element message of social awareness, environmental stewardship and positivity. Instead of a cash prize the overall winner is awarded some great memories, a taste of culture from around the world and a possibility for a new found career in skateboarding. A truly unforgettable experience.


This year we see the competition coming to Manchester’s pump cage on Saturday May the 19th. You would be mad to miss out on such a great opportunity on your doorstep. Show your support and spread the word as it could be you or a friend that takes the time to enter and ends up winning something worthwhile. What’s to lose hey..
