Rodney Jesse: Style Maker

Make no doubt about it, Rodney Jesse was a style maker. His influence on skateboarding is less visible today due to a narrowed and controlled view of skate history, but his presence remains strong to those who knew him and got to see him ride. Still to come, an early photo of Jesse getting some no-handed air prior to the birth of the Ollie. This stunning image of Jesse taken by Surfer mag photographer Guy Motil and was the lead-in for Jesse’s interview in SkateBoarder mag.
