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.

In 2006 the Carlsbad Unified School District approved a decision to demolish the school in order to build a new school.  It wasn’t until 2008 that rumors drifted around within the skateboarding community about the Carlsbad Gap demolition.   Fast forward to Thursday February 23rd, 2012 and a skateboarding landmark has its last day.  How long will it be before a skate plaza duplicates the Carlsbad Gap?  Read More
