At the beginning of the last year I decided to compile a chart of the best videos of 2015. I ended up not posting it because I considered it to be too subjective. This year I was smarter 🙂 I let other jammers to compile their charts and from their intersections I built more objective TOP 10 videos of 2016. If you are eager to see the final chart, you can just scroll to the bottom and enjoy the videos. If you are interested in the process of compiling the final chart and individual TOP 10s, read on.

 

The evaluators

Choosing who to approach was actually not that hard. First I asked Benno and Graf, Berlin jammers and freestyle videos ĂĽber-nerds who carefully study every new and old video. Clear choice. Next I went to the video-master himself – James Wiseman. Also hoping I will at least get one chart which won’t be full of “James-videos”. That worked out well. In the end I wanted to have charts of some super-fired up jammers who are not in the game for that long. Clear choice again – The Rovereto jammers. These guys are consuming freestyle videos for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and they shred accordingly). Straight, three of them (Andrea, Edo and Mattia) sent me theirs selections. Thank all of you guys for your charts!

 

The process

And what about criteria and methodics I used compiling the final chart? Well, it’s not that complicated. My only requirement was that the videos are “non-routines” and first published in 2016. Then I went throught the individual charts and valued the 1st place video with 4 points, 2nd place with 3 points, 3rd place with 2 points and the rest with 1 point. Finally I added up all the points and voilá…
