I spent the last 24 hours shooting  Rodney Mullen for National Geographic.  All I can say is wow.  This guy is so inspiring, super thoughtful, genius skater, ultra friendly, uber creative,  totally generous, More determination than I've ever seen, not to mention a complete mathematical wizard.  Rodney has it all.  I was honored and stoked to get to know him.  Thanks Rodney for a great day.

Kyle, jaw breaker is definitely not doa, we are making some slow progress in the edit room. We will get there eventually.
