A little bit of fun for your Monday morning. Here’s skate legend Rodney Mullen at a freestyle contest in Carson, CA circa 1987. Dude has got some skeellz! Personally, I haven’t skated for years but I love seeing this vintage footage.

Off topic? Kind of… except that the contest is being held on the infield of the '84 Olympic Velodrome. Nice!
