    Fittingly inducted into Skateboarding's Hall of Fame the same year as Alan Gelfand (Invented the ollie on vert), a humble Rodney would be more than worthy of this honor for his adaptation of the vertical ollie to flatground alone. The freestyle "ollie pop" on flat ground in 1982 is probably the single most influential trick in skateboarding history-the cataclysm for an entirely new dimension, which literally got skateboarding off the ground- then later up curbs, over benches, and onto handrails. Most amazingly, however, for Rodney, this milestone accomplishment was only one of probably hundreds of other equally pivotal innovations he contributed between 1982 up through 1990 that would ultimately become the very building blocks of street skating. The "magic flip" in '83 would become the kick flip, the "helipop" around that same time would open the door to nollies (popping the board off the nose), which then in turn would eventually lead to the rise of the switch-stance. The 360 flip would come a few years later, along with the ollie impossible, the heel flip, backside flip, double flip, ollie grabs, dark slides, and onward. Rodney Mullen essentially build modern skateboarding from the ground up then passed on his creations for the entire world to continue evolving.
