    I'm assuming this is this year, the video says it's Hawk, Cab and Mullen all skating in 2020. And the trick isn't the most amazing thing ever or anything....it's just that I've never seen anybody else do it before. And it's SUPER impressive for a dude in his 50's to do something like this.

    I hope I can be that dorky at his age

    Rodney Mullen was doing tricks 30 years ago that people still can’t do


    He may be the goat goat

    I wish someone had advised me to become totally obsessed with something as an adolescent so I could become the best at it and retire at 35.

    iirc the only two guys who have come close are carlos lastra and Johnny giger but they still have a hard time landing his tricks.

    Giger put a video on his channel of a dude named Olli Fevang and he's like a modern flatground prodigy like Rodney. But his vids are edited so idk how consistent he is with his tricks. But he does some seriously mind blowing things.

    I think luan oliviera could land a lot of rodney mullens tricks if he put the effort into them he does a lot of crazy tricks.

    He has some interesting coordination that translates well to skateboarding.. He couldn't be a star in the NBA, but nobody currently in the NBA can do what he does either.. A-level.

    As someone who knows nothing about skate boarding, after watching that clip, I must say... I still have no idea what new trick he did.
