In each episode of Footy Dump, we’ll take a look at previously lost or never before seen footage of skateboarding radness. In this installment, we check out some unseen footage of Paul Rodriguez at Nike SB’s Sixth and Mill facility from 7 July 2013. This was right at the beginning of the renaissance of front foot flips, at the launch of the P-Rod 7 Skate Safari, and before there was even Primitive Skateboarding. P-Rod took it to a whole other level with a backside crooked grind to nollie front foot flip out. Yep, you read that right!! Say that fast three times. BOOM!!! Yes, this is PRETTY DAMN KRAKED! Definitely a face melter right there and the Krak team was lucky enough to have been there to witness this. As a bonus, this was also one of the first sightings of P-Rod’s infamous “Gold” boards. We still got a couple more clips from that day stacked, so check out the clip below and stay tuned!
“Just want to keep your weight right above the front truck, and keep your foot pinching the wheel on the ledge.”
You might or might not have heard of Portland’s Peter McClelland. If you have, you probably know that Peter’s been quietly killin’ it with his crazy tech wizardry for a while now. Now an Oregon transplant to SoCal and an OG Stoner Local, Peter’s one of the humblest dudes you could ever meet, and definitely the friendliest. He has a sick how to video on kickflip frontside crooks up on the Transworld Skateboarding site right now. I’ve seen Peter put these down countless times, he definitely has those magic feet. You can be sure you’ll be seeing more of Peter in the future. Fittingly filmed at the now legal West L.A. Courthouse ledges, ladies and gentleman, may we present, Mr Peter McClelland.
