You can’t fool me. Rodney Mullen is not from this planet.


since watching the rise of electric skateboards over the last two years or so I suddenly found myself in the position for one person with some nasty questions so I bought one of those cheap monocycles on amazon the point is still a launch prospect but the level of engineering is a total disaster waiting to happen but don’t let’s get into that problem of torque… judging how tight a nut should be!

I guess it’s passe now, but the “darkslide” is the trick I know Mullen for, which was a total mindfuck back in 1993. This video purports to be the first session where he nailed it.


You can’t make me watch it! You aren’t my real dad!
