fuckin weird i was watchin loads of rodney mullen the other day
Whats happened to Mullen! He was the don one!!!
he is a rollerblader now...
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.
ah, true true true!
some more good stuff from richie:
and his brother in crime, more or less same sick style: patrick melcher!
Love the last one, ho ho ho mad stuff...
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.
too much acid makes you do mad things
That Richie bloke is flawless never seen him before...powersliding down a stair set? Fuck right off mad man fo sho
thats amazing. for some reason i thought they couldnt do much more with skateboards
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
this is my favourite rodney part
in all honesty, yeh mullen is sick and an originator, but i get some bored watching his sections. i was gonna bring richie jackson to light but noz and ilovelondon are on the case! as for mini-ramp innovation, this is hands down the sickest thing ive seen, haslam and daewon kill it
i find mini ramp strangely unsatisfying to watch
yea is a bit of a bore imo.
that richie jackson is a bad man tho.
Best mini ramp vid ive seen by far...part one is all out tech, fuckin outstanding skills!
