Rodney Mullen – Ollie Inventor

Rodney Mullen – Skateboard Innovater

It all started with a little thing called a skateboard, and Rodney Mullen did something great with it.  He invented the Ollie. It may not seem like much now, because it’s such a stock trick (perfected with time of course), but at the time it was revolutionary; much like all the other tricks he innovated.  In the jock world it would be similar to the guy how dunked the first basketball, or hit the first home run.  Thanks Rodney.

Team Skateboard Gear

  

The House Team Skateboard Gear

It’s pretty amazing to skate comfortably in late November.  Despite the recent cold spike in Minnesota, The House skate crew was able to get some shots at the Little Canada skatepark recently.  Joe & Justin Scherer, Danny Kern, and Kenny Peterson all made it out for a quick little session.  No skateboards broke and we had a blast.  If you’re looking for some gift ideas for a skater, check out what our team skaters ride…HERE.

Pretty Sweet – Girl & Chocolate Trailer

Pretty Sweet Trailer

How in the world do skate companies get away with releasing a trailer and making everyone wait almost a year for the flick to premiere?  Girl & Chocolate Skateboards‘ Pretty Sweet trailer was uploaded on December 1st, 2011 and the LA world premiere isn’t until November 16th, 2012!  The wait will be well worth it.  With an unreal lineup of skaters, hesh spots, and a vast amount of time used to edit Pretty Sweet we all now it’s going to be pretty sweet.
