Rodney is the king of tech, no question. Yeah, he invented the flat-ground ollie, which arguably the most influential (and fundamental) trick ever invented, BUT, Natas and Gonz may also hold part of the crown. When Rodney started doing all that shit, it was in the "freestyle" skating context. Natas and Gonz were the first ones to take Rodney's discoveries and apply to the to the street.
