Rodney Mullen is a living legend and has every right to be. With 30 years of innovation one might expect Rodney to achieve a few “firsts”. As the inventor of the ollie, kickflip, heelflip, treflip, and many other tricks Rodney will always be on a pedestal.
It’s been 12 years since Rodney Mullen released a significant amount of footage. Yet, here today, it is. Steven Sebring invited Rodney into the world of his high fashion studio to capture the true essence of a creative human.
It all started with a little thing called askateboard, 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.
