M-Rod (Matt Rodriguez) has always skated his own path. 1998.

i remember watching “the other ones” with some friends who were unfamiliar with MR and just seeing them be so bored with his part (even though it was fucking sick), and just being bummed on the fact that they didnt realize how sick he was (and obviously still is) back before skateboarding was even introduced to them.  its weird how so many people can be passionate about something yet not respect the history of how it became something they love.
