Every clip has a head cut in it and for any extreme sports like skateboarding, cutting the skater/rider's head off is a no-no. I really liked the first clip's angle though.

While I have no interest in skating, I don't agree. As a viewer you want to see the action. If the action is where the feet are, show the feet. I'd rather have the excitement of being in close than seeing some Dude bouncing around in the distance. Obviously you want an establishing shot to show who the feet belong to but after that what's so interesting about someone's head? They are skating, not singing.

i agree with john on this one. i would care more about the action itself than who is skating. i do want to see that person but i dont need to see their face if its the same person for the whole video. i dont shoot much skating but visually you video is not that exciting maybe if you get closer to the action itself it would be more exciting or maybe follow him while he is skating and hold the camera low to the ground

With skating it is different however, it is a general rule in skate filming (I used to do this for years) that a fisheye shot usually needs the entire skater in the frame, to showcase the style and flow of the skater. For non-fisheye lenses, cutting off is more accepted but not in fisheye shots
