After 2004’s Almost Round Three, Rodney Mullen has largely stayed out of the limelight. Now though, the 49 year old street pioneer is back with a brand new video part after twelve years, the new footage called Liminal and released by Vogue is far from an ordinary skate section. It came about when Dhani Harrison ( son of Beatles guitarist George Harrison) approached him asking about documenting his skating with Steven Sebring, a fashion photographer who has had work in magazines like Vanity Fair, Vogue and GQ. Shot in his revolutionary 360-degree studio (a 24 foot dome surrounded by 100 cameras) Mullen returns and he’s well on form as he compiles a collection of NBD’s all captured in stunning 360-degree high definition. Rodney hasn’t lost anything at all in fact he’s even better. Click play below now and you will see what we mean.
When you start a part with a ridiculously long steezed backside tailslide people should take notice. That’s what Youness Amrani does straight away and immediately grabs your attention. The part was first shown during the Battle At The Berrics 9 finals, Amrani himself finished third overall in this years competition. This part proves that the Nike SB and Almost rider is much more capable of just skating flat ground really well. Every clip in this is pretty much a jaw dropper, hammer after hammer it’s intense. We might have given a little spoiler to the opening but we will say no more and let you discover everything else for yourself.
In terms of progressive skateboarding you can’t front on the wonder kid Youness Amrani! Watch below his whole new section of bonkers skating and then prepare to press the replay button a few more times after that till it starts to sink in.
