Definitely would have thought there would be more than six manual tricks, but looking back on it I really can't think of too many.

These are cool, keep it up, I appreciate the work. Reminds me of something that would be in the last third of an issue of Skateboarder.

I appreciate the clean and stylish infographic.  58 minutes is a long video, but you got your monies worth.

Do you mind if I put this in my ebay auction when I sell this video?
I'm posting from my blackberry wtf?!?!?

Number of best switch kickflips committed to tape: 1, performed by one Tom Penny: switch ollie up a ledge, greatest switch flip ever on flat, switch frontside flip off the ledge.

Wow, you really went all out on this. Were feebles seen as an uncool trick at that time?

Damn McCrank really is the shit, crazy that there was only 6 smith grinds, I feel like there is more in the average 8-10 minute web clip nowadays, unless im completely fucking up the basic math here(likely) this video has about 13.18 tricks per minute, curious how that would compare to something like the early Zero videos or Welcome to Hell

I don't think so, Modus Operandi was released the same year with plenty of smiths and feebles. When Menikmati came out I distinctly remember there being a lack of smiths/feebles. Arto back smith'd Hollywood 12 and the other two were from Rick and Bob in the montage section. Not sure why this stuck out to me, 15 years later I put that nugget in my head to good use and made this infographic.

The reason I did Menikmati was specifically to highlight the lack of smith grinds and no feebles. Since first watching that video in 2000 it always stuck out to me for some odd reason thus leading to this infographic. Are there anomalies or details within other skate videos we need to take a look at?

I'd like to see a zero video broken down due to the lack of lines in some of the parts. I can't remember who's part it is but the only line is a kf up a curb then a handrail trick if i remember correctly.

I think I know what you're referring to, I'd have to go back and watch. This reminds me of the Circa video, "It's Time" - Windsor James part = not 1 line.

Comparison of Static 1-5.

ratio of urban to non-urban spots
ratio of spots in downtown environment vs. non-downtown
ratio of lines vs non-lines
ratio of US vs international spots
# of cellar doors per video
# of fisheye shots

would probably require some definition of variables for sure since this sort of stuff can be mercurial.

I think there would be some interesting trends in there because they change a lot video to video.

Edit: Predictions would be

-Cellar doors, international spots peak on 3 and then decline
-urban on a steady upclimb and plateauing at 3
-Sharp spike in downtown footage in 4 and 5

You need to take a video from 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015 and count the number of stairs of flip tricks and handrails in each one. Also estimate average ledge and gap height and length. Put this all in line charts with number of stairs, ledge height etc versus time.

This can also be done counting certain tricks (like you counted smiths, feebles and manuals in Menikmati) with the number versus time. Thus proving the popularity of a trick over time. This is of great importance and no time should be wasted.

I recall Ben Gilley's Label Kills part not having any flip tricks in it, not sure if that's right though.  Good work on that infographic, you nailed the design and aesthetic.
