WATCH MATT TOMASELLO IN “RODNEY MULLEN ON BATH SALTS: ROUND THREE”

September 16, 2019/ Fancy Lad/ VIDEOS/ Comments: 13

When we first compared Matt Tomasello to some kind of drugged up version of Rodney Mullen, it was meant to be somewhat a joke, since bath salts probably don’t improve your skating (except in rare instances).

But now, a year and two videos later, we still haven’t found a better way to describe Matt’s skating, but maybe it’s because there isn’t a better description.

Bath salts, a.k.a. Monkey Dust, are a type of amphetamine that speeds everything up and makes you do things average humans can’t.

Matt’s skating, with all his folding and unfolding board contraptions, no handed pogos, and sideways grinds, slides, and flips, feels like just that. You even have to rewind it or watch it in slo-mo just to comprehend most of his clips.

So for the final(?) installment of Matt’s trilogy, we’re sticking with comparing him to Rodney on bath salts. Enjoy it if you can, or click back to a simpler time when Todd Falcon was the most technically advanced skater out there.

      It’s definitely gimmicky.. People hated on Mullen when all he did was flat ground ballerina type shit with his wack ass socks and knee pads. But once he started applying that to actual street skating he blew minds and got the respect he had never had and certainly deserved it. This dude takes that to another level by not just rethinking tricks, and the approach to what you do said trick on, but the ACTUAL thing you use to DO the tricks. So, gimmicky? Yes! But seeing as how his gimmick is being super creative and looking at street skating in a way no one else has or could because it’s so unique to him, it’s fuckin RAD!
