I never thought that he would get better than when he would come to KONA back when he was a boy in '81. Kid just practiced and practiced in his garage in Gainesville, and if he came over to Jax, he stayed in the Freestyle reservoir, just workin' that deck from end to end.

Is that taken from the new Almost video?  I've never seen it before.

Ya, that's Mullen's part in Almost's last video Round 3.  The funniest part is when he's tricking on the walk of fame and bumps into some pedestrian, then when he looks up it's Jack Nicholson and Mullen is totally dumbfounded.  Jack just keeps walking off while Rodney looks at the camera and him and the filmer are like: "Holy shit!  That's Jack Nicholson".

It's a great video.  All the riders have mostly creative, techy parts like that one with interesting lines and combos instead of a barrage of rail hits like a lot of street videos (well there's one short rail barrage).  It's worth checking out if you dig watching that Mullen segment.

Wonder if anyone will ever be as good at all around tech as Mullen. I can't imagine it.

 

If I had to pick one dude to blow away a non-skater I'd pick Mullen,then Hawk second.

 No one could touch him back in the day, not Rocco, Primo, Welander, Harris, nobody. And now the dude just blows my mind doing a kickflip, then catching the rail in air, to reverse flip, SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mullen blows me away every time I see him on video. The tricks that he performs are just mind boggling, his sense of balance and board control leave me gob-smacked. Kickflips to tail and manuel in and out of consecutive tricks...

Kickflip underflips they're called.  He is fucking amazing.  Pretty damn smart too.
