Youtube has changed the game for skaters and the skateboarding industry, whether your vlog lightly features skating or it has a weekly skateboard how-to segment along with the occasional part. By representing themselves and putting in the time to connect with an audience, skaters have the power to build their own reputations and companies, and inspire others to do the same.
In this list we've included 10 professional templates by Envato Elements and Market that will give you access to great colour grades, titles, transitions, openers, as well as lower third options for your videos.

1. Ultra Color
Ultra Color is a well organized template that consists of 100 LUT options divided into 10 tidy categories. It has a user friendly design allowing you drag and drop as well and he ability to preview the look without rendering.
The use of a lower third is a classic way to display someones name. Inspiring Lower Thirds are well designed, stylistic, and minimal. This template has wonderfully simple in/out animations that grab attention without being overly distracting.
When used in moderation and at the right moment Zoom Transitions can be the perfect tool to connect two clips that weren’t feeling right with a classic jump cut. This pack is loaded with fifty great options and features an easy-to-use drag and drop system.
Titles will always be a nice tool to have on hand. Even in a skate video. Creative Titles offers 25 unique title styles to choose from, and with easy customization over the parameters you’ll be able to fit this in. I’d recommend it as alternative to using lower thirds.
Glitch Logo Intro is a great way to add a simple flair to your video. Just add your already existing logo, edit to your liking and you are off!
