Rodney Mullen

It didn’t take a lot of thought when it came to writing the first blog for the ‘Land’ aspect of the freeride project. Rodney is one of the original freeriders, breaking down the boundaries and perceptions of flatland skateboarding and in turn laying the blueprints for street skating.

Rodney was for innovation and even though he makes it look so easy these tricks took hours, weeks and months to land and perfect. Rodney would stay up for days in search for that next trick, he is a true professional. I love listening to Rodney talk, his calm nature and his self belief broke through the bullies and the sceptics. Rodney you changed skateboarding more than you’ll ever give yourself credit for and we salute you
