i used to love watching these vids and adore his skating. But it's always the same. He's been repeting himself for years.
Now i just respect him, because of the sick tricks he can pull off (some of 'em that haven't been done by another skater yet), for the (now so common) tricks he invented, for being one of the most original skaters ever, and for being a landmark in skateboarding.

Rodney was the don.......now there's this guy. Pulls off tricks I haven't even heard people talk about! Mullen was God, and this guy must be Jesus.

correct me if i am wrong, but didn't he personally invent a shitload of tricks.

I don't know the stats but its mind boggling if i remember correctly...

never mind here is the quote from WIKI...

"Mullen is credited with inventing at least 30 distinct skateboarding tricks, including the kickflip (originally called the "magic flip") in 1983, the heelflip, the 360 flip, and the impossible."

Yeah, flip tricks wouldn't have been what they are right now without mullen.
But i did mention this already mate. ;)

he is the godfather of skateboarding, invented the kickflip and pretty much every other flip trick
Check his video part in second hand smoke, best section to date
