I watched all 5 finalists, and hands down, Joe's is the best of those 5. It definitely has a nice groove and feel to it... and showcases a very skateboardy feel. A good use of effects without being obvious.
Soundtrack sync with the action was awesome.
The other ones:
one had a too "gimmicky" look and feel, another was too slow to get started, the very last one.. too many shots of Ryan bailing.. hello?!
Ryan will see it, choose it and hire you on for his next video!
Joe, I see good things happening for you with this! Hollywood will be calling! :-)
