Rodney Mullen is definitely one of my heroes and the definition of a living legend.
Skateboarding would look very different today without his influence. Not only was the mold broken after Rodney was made, but it was incinerated and the ashes scattered around the world.
"Don't let anything poison your individuality. Break away & look in, not outward."
