I grew up marvelling (and still do) what Rodney Mullen was able to pull off. A pioneer of freestyle skating, Rodney Mullen remains as one of the most creative and technical skaters the professional skateboard world has ever seen. His legacy is apparent in the modern street style skating seen on televised competitions today. The inventiveness is what really set him apart from his peers. If you’ve seen some documentary footage of him, it was kind of suggested he would be mad at times with his insatiable desire to master tricks. What really resonated with me is that he found all of his confidence and solace in skateboarding while growing up. He will forever be known as an icon for me. Check out some clips of his mastery in the video.
