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.
