I love this talk by Rodney Mullen.
John Rodney Mullen (born August 17, 1966) is a professional skateboarder who practices freestyle and street skateboarding. Mullen is credited with
inventing numerous skateboarding tricks, including the kickflip, heelflip, impossible, and 360 flip. Mullen has appeared in more than twenty
skateboarding videos and has co-authored an autobiography, entitled The Mutt: How to Skateboard and Not Kill Yourself, with Sean Mortimer.
The last thing Rodney Mullen, the godfather of street skating, wanted were competitive victories. In this exuberant talk he shares his love of the
open skateboarding community and how the unique environments it plays in drive the creation of new tricks -- fostering prolific ingenuity purely for
passion's sake. (Filmed at TEDxUSC.)
His happiness fills the stage and his words carries wisdom.
Well worth the watch if you are into skateboarding or just a person whom appreciates some positive energy.
The skateboarding community goes hand in hand with all the other creative communities that makes our world a little bit better.
It does not really matter what one do, as long as there is passion it will lead to greater things.
