i know it's apples and oranges but tyler bledsoe rightfully has some crazy variations....
[close]

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.

yeah....matt brought all the variations..the fakie in frontside fakie out is nuts....

I think now he's the best boardslide 270 variation guy....

I've seen matt tons of times at the Hanger in Sac, but I've never actually seen him skate - he's always just chilling. One of these days I'll actually get to see him rip... his stereo parts are some of my faves...

i like how lee and pastras make fun of his music in the tincan folklore commentary, they pretty laugh uncontrollably through most of the part.

in that last clip whitely posted you can hear his trucks jingling like keys, shit is craze.

was going to start a Matt Rodriguez appreciation, decided to use the search function and found this long gone thread.

One of my all time favorite styles.  

Also wanted to post this part, had never seen it before.  What is it from?  Ender is sick.

Rodriguez definitely deserves a lot more love in the industry, hell he even deserves a lot more money *hard glances at I-path*
Was doing "hard way" tricks waay before it became trendy, always skated ditches/ tight tranny etc., was pretty much the only guy out there riding a square nose etc. etc.

He is the reason I stopped riding tight trucks.
