    I know this guy is very famous, especially in the game because skateboarding is not so famous in my country. But only this time I saw him speak directly. and he is so down to earth.

    +Niek Warnas He and Rodney Mullen are like Jesus and god of skateboarding, fucktard. They will NEVER be forgotten as long as there is skateboarding. Did Christians forgot who Jesus is after 2000 years? Same thing with Tony Hawk and Rodney Mullen.

    You must have watched them 15 years after he made them. I was in Kona when he did a 900. That's old, and I wasn't a kid. Wanna see Kona? Check out It's one of a lot of pros favorite park.
