Any serious skate fanatic has wondered at least once in their life what it would be like to break down skate videos by numbers. Pull out a pen and notepad, cue up a video, and start scribbling down as many data points as you can count.

The process is a serious grind, but luckily we have guest contributors, and one of them spent dozens of hours coming up with a pretty thorough skate video data analysis.

Jared decided to analyze some skateboarder’s entire careers through their video parts, appreciating them in a new way, starting with Jim Greco’s 25+ year prolific career.

    Conspiracy, might not wanna trust this guy there were actually 14 tricks in his 2g part. This data is tainted.

    Awesome! Great with the GitHub link. I hope people start to give you pull requests of data for other skaters. Furthermore it would be interesting to normalize the data to the amount of tricks per part so that it is easier to see the general development.

    I think you are on to something- I hope to see more . No need to name names. I trust you from the simple fact of your first pick. Starting off with JG is/ was a helluva choice to start out of the gate and you couldn’t have picked a better choice!!!! I’m in!!!!
