Rodney Mullen – First Ever Darkslide

Rodney Mullen’s first ever darkslide.   Boring by typical skate footage standards, but it is kinda cool watching him piece the different parts of the trick together.   Definitely a genius at work.   I also like the fact that it is just him and a buddy at the spot and the overall casual-ness of the whole situation.  He smiles, but doesn’t jump up and down and fall on the ground with excitement.  Just another day at work, and another iconic trick invented.

  1. interesting that he started by learning the dismount first. i have always thought that was kinda a gimmick trick. kinda like some freestyle goofiness
