The votes are in and being counted... Winner announced shortly.
The last Finalist for YOUnited Nations 4 comes straight from Spain and embodies the spirit of fun. You'll be able to vote on your favorite Finalist tomorrow for 24 hours only (polls open tonight at midnight PST). The winner will be announced this Friday.
One of the raddest things about skating is going new places, searching for new spots.
