Way Back Wednesday this week is dedicated to Rodney Mullen. Rodney Started skating in 1974 and 9 months later he was sponsored. He has only lost one competition in his life and he placed 2 due to a cold. Even though Rodney skates mostly street/flatland he has even won a vert comp. back in the day. In 1992 Rodney and Steve Rocco started World Industries, than in 2002 he created Almost skateboards and in 2003 he wrote a book titled "The Mutt: How to skateboard and not kill yourself" Rodney is a very positive person who is still skating and designing new innovative skateboard decks such as Uber Construction, He has inspired us greatly. He's been by the shop a few times and we hope to see him again.
