Contact jugglers use feet to manipulate wheeled planks of wood.
This video uses slow motion to capture the intricate footwork skateboarders use which is lost to the casual observer because of the speed they have to perform their moves.
The whole skateology series is one which I watch regularly. Every video in it is so beautiful.
Also, like you said, it shows things often missed. I've been a big fan of skateboarding since I around 1999 and I have filmed and edited 3 skate videos (2 full length) in that time, I can (proudly?) say that I can normally work out any trick, at normal speed, even the most f'd up shniz. However, watching it this slow gives up time to appreciate it - some tricks are so intricate and even if we understand them, watching them once over the course of half a second is just not enough, it's like not chewing your food properly.
That is really amazing. I knew that they (really good skaters) were not really human, but that proved it.
