Mike Osterman is one of the best freestyle skateboarders in the world. Normally, being "one of the best" might disqualify him from these pages, but it's freestyle so it's all in line with our goals here. A person, a board, and a flat plane. Normally I'm not a huge fan of stationary trick sequences, but Mike puts the kind of flow into this that I like.

Look at his feet. Even in tail-stop position his feet are fully on the board, not on the ground. When he goes from no-handed 50/50 to kickflip position, he lands perfectly for the next step (the kickflip to rail). 

It's all in the small details, and Mike gets them all right.
