On September 24th 2011, Element and Beachworks joined forces to present the ELEMENT EQUINOX FESTIVAL. Set in Element’s own Orange County backyard, the festival included an amateur contest, team demo, team signing and a bevy of booths to keep attendees psyched. Two amateur contests were held: thirteen and under and fourteen plus. A total of $1,000 was awarded to the winners, $700 of which made its way into the back pocket of 14+ winner Edgar Barrera.
In addition, a free trip to Element / Ymca Skate Camp was awarded to the winner of the thirteen and under contest, Vinny Villani.
As impressive as the 14+ contest and demo were, the young kids contest really brought the stoke. Seeing the young’uns with decks as big them go for glory brought smiles to the faces of even the most jaded among us.
While not watching the skate action, attendees tie-dyed t-shirts, got henna tattoos, played skateboard wheel plinko to win free Element gear and checked out an array of animals on display from Inside the Outdoors.

Etnies recently welcomed Nick Garcia to their roster and posted this introductory commercial. Nick’s astronomically well-rounded skills shine in this short, but sweet clip.
As part of the Element Crossing Canada tour, the team stopped in at the capital of Ontario for a demo and signing at Ashbridges skatepark. Check out footage from the event brought to us by Push.ca!
Element headed to Costa Rica to visit the family of Arenas Skate Shops, and found a thriving, energetic skate community. Watch Nyjah Huston, Levi Brown, Nick Garcia, Evan Smith, Darrell Stanton and more put on a show for jam packed crowd… Hundreds of people waited more than 8 hours before the park opened to get a seat! Thanks to everyone that came out and welcomed the team with roaring applause and positivity.
After 12 days of traveling across Canada the team sadly hits their last stop of the Element “Crossing Canada” tour. Check out a few photos below from the trip or see full albums on the West 49 Facebook.
