An Ode to the Originator

  • Written by Steve Connerton


    This is a long overdue ode to someone that I have looked up to as a person, a skater, a visionary, a scholar and anything else that I may have missed, since a young age. I am talking about the originator of modern skateboarding as we know it. I am talking about Rodney Mullen. I was so happy to see some new footage of him, as it has been around 12 years since he has last been featured in a part.


    Rodney, who I often refer to as a mad scientist is so much more than the skater that I grew up watching. He is one smart dude. If you didn't know, he was featured at a TED Confernece a couple years back.


    Here is to Rodney and his latest footage!
