Looks good, some great material and shots to work with. The A1 really shines here, the camera work is of a high standard. The colours are so vibrant. The reaction shot at 2:45 is great.

My Editing Critique
For this kind of material, I think the edit is a little loose and would personally cut at least 10% of the time by cutting quicker to the action in each clip. You seem to hang onto the end of the clips far too long, the MTV generation is used to a high cut/action ratio, otherwise it can seem to drag.

It is very linear and therefore looks like a series of clips, rather than a action mix. Mixing some mini montages of similar tricks, or maybe chopping clips in parts and remixing occasionally would add some extra interest.

A great effort though, these are just some ideas for you.

thank you for your helpful insight paul!! and now that i look at it, i think your completely right about cutting the clips a little sooner to keep the action going! thank you again for taking the time to watch the edit it is greatly appreciated.

I also found it very entertaining and well photographed - nice use of the fisheye BTW. I would also claim that some of the shots lingered a little and could have been cut out sooner to maintain the action.

I have seen similar shoots where the editor has inserted very short cut-in's of people's faces/expressions and used odd angles & ultra close-ups of skaters and skates etc but it's all about what you want to achieve - we can all criticise (in a professional manner) other people's work - hell I do with most zillion dollar budget feature films!
