I like the black sky in 1 and 3 but 2 is by far the best. Next time try taking a few shots with your flash set to slow sync to get some movement in the shots. Also try another angle to shoot from, that fence in the background looks too close and distracts from the shots. Try for a shot of a skater coming right at you if you can.

A change in perspective
will change a barren wasteland
to a field of opportunity

I shoot this kind of action including snowboard terrain parks. You need to include the ramps and structures to give perspective on the level of danger, height, etc. It adds to the excitement.

Well, the simplest advice would be to shoot in the daytime to avoid the harsh shadows. You've done well given the conditions. I've shot my son, who is quite an accomplished skateboarder, and its a challenge -- angles, shutter speed, position of the sun, and the timing of the "trick" he is doing.
