Nerdsday Thursday: Are Skateboarders Quitting?

Now, there's a few assumptions, both positive and negative, that you can make about why this data is what it is. So, I dug even deeper. Looking at that list of 200 top skaters in 2006, how many of them do you think skated at least once in the following years, not even being in the top 200, just skated one single time? This chart below shows that and it's alarming. Out of the top 200 skaters in 2006, by 2012, less than half of them have skated here at least once. Is it safe to assume they quit? There's more free parks around here, but damn, wouldn't you at least come one single time a year if you were still skating? Especially since we completely change the course every single year? I think it's safe to assume those kids quit skating. Damn, what are they doing these days? Rapping like Jereme Rogers? Getting old and fat? Who knows, maybe you have different thoughts on these data patterns?
