Rodney Mullen and the first casper slide

“Oh my God Rodney yes”

In 1992 Rodney Mullen landed (and invented) the first casper slide.

I wish I could say that after he landed it, everyone else landed it too.

That’s not what happened.

Besides a tiny handful of skaters, nobody has nailed the casper slide since Rodney did it in ’92.

Showing up, over and over and over again, until you pull off something so stupidly impossible that nearly 30 years later only a handful of others have done it since?

Magic.

Magic, but not impossible.
