LEGENDS OF SK8! RODNEY MULLEN
Born: 17/8/1966 From: Florida, USA Why he’s a legend: He’s one of the most prolific trick inventors. He’s responsible for almost every trick there is, including the kick flip, the heel flip, street Ollie, and the 360-flip (to name a few). Signature move: Frontside crooked grind variations – That’s when you perform a grind using the nose of your board. Mullen mixes it up by performing nollies and board-flips at the start or end of the grind.
