Rodney Mullen appreciation

Like many other kids that grew up with Nintendo 64, I wanted to be a skateboarder after playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater obsessively with my friends. One of the characters that you could choose to be was Rodney Mullen; one of the most accomplished street skaters of all time.

You don't have to like skateboarding to appreciate these clips; they're pretty amazing. The first one is from Japan in 1984 - gives you an idea of how long Mullen's been skating.

Here's a more modern clip... circa 2000/2001
