matt rodriguez appreciation thread
« on: April 27, 2010, 10:00:48 AM »
just watched some little stereo news video, sparked me to start this. one of the smoothest and most original styles, lots of innovation, fast and loose! always wished he got more recognition. i don't want to be all back in the day, but matt's been killing it for so long. respect!

hopefully we got some non-youtube appreciation coming through the pipe

huge fan, had his wall ride, power slide as an avatar and his tail slide line at easy 7. i actually tried that tails slide a few times, so hard to roll up on it right.

fixed.

Dude is sick. Always looks good, always does some crazy shit where its clear he is on his own trip. Really good too, not like Richie Jackson on his own trip, like shit other pros would do if they could think of it or had the skill to do it own trip

He is such an original, its humbling to watch any footage of him skate.

Jimmy thinks Matt is fucking awesome.  That being said Jimmy thinks Natas was the king of Hurricanes.  Check out 2:55.

true. i'll give him that f/s hurricane kickflip transfer, that was ill.

as for natas, for sure, he did them great and looooong, but i think rodriguez did the most with them.

I love how this dude defies the hippy stereotype and skates fast as fuck. Didn't he used to skate with Cardiel a bunch? That would be a hell of a session to watch go down. I think if I saw that I'd never wash my eyes again.
