That's 1 pic per post and only 1 person would be able to rate it according to the rules...

First one the last guy is cut off. Second the board is lost in the background.

RIDEchannel on youtube has some interesting videos on how to shoot skateboarding. I think you could learn a lot from them.

I checked out a few videos on RIDEchannel, going to watch more. I didn't touch the highlights at all.

You typically don't want your brightest point to be the sky unless shooting landscapes. A flash might help. Also, there is a lot of dead space in pic 1.

You could also post in WDYS and ask for critique.

A flash would definitely help and it's a good investment but to deal with the slow flash durations he would probably have to stack two flashes. Shooting action sports with speedlights is a pain.

Strobes are the way to go, but an investment for a new hobbyist.

I typically don't use flashes for sports so I've never had to worry about it, but from what I've read a typical strobe should have a short enough duration to freeze motion.

GTFO of skateparks.. Then I'll CC your work.

2nd/3rd photo, get lower, move to your left. It'll take a bit of emphasis away from the trick, however, it'll give the viewer more perspective. I know from being at skateparks, that he's popping off the edge of a kicker, but someone who doesn't know what a typical skatepark looks like would assume he's just popping off the flat on the top of the box.

Definitely go lower on shots like the second and third one. For skate/bmx photos it's about finding the right angles which can be tricky whilst trying not to get in the way of anyone. White balance seems a bit off too. The ramps and cement look blue. A bit underexposed as well. I have trouble with that too since you can only go off a ramp or rail in specific directions. That can be managed in pp though. Good job capturing the action. Keep at it. Shooting stuff like this can be heaps of fun.
