Visual summary of skateboarding tournament

Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

George Murphy visualized the results of this year’s skateboarding tournament Battle at the Berrics 7. Even if you don’t like or know anything about skateboarding, this is a fun one to scroll through.

Skaters match up head-to-head in a bracket format, and compete in a style similar to the basketball game of H-O-R-S-E. One person does a trick, and if completed cleanly, the other person has to match. If the second person fails to match, he or she receives a letter. The first person to S-K-A-T-E loses.

Murphy takes you through the tournament with video clips and transitions through a handful of charts. You see how a match plays out and what individual skaters did. Fun.
