“‘You have to invent at least 1,000 original tricks. You have to create all new levels of skateboarding that never existed before. You have to reach the final level of skateboarding. That’s what the voice said to me.'”
To say freestyle skater Todd Falcon is eccentric would be a massive understatement. He is a cult icon known for creating more tricks that any skater ever before (he has ALL the footage to prove it). He’s a YouTube hit amongst skaters and he’s got his life’s skateboarding work all coming to a head in his new skate video “Skateboarding Revelations: Journey to the Final Level”.
Hailing from Missouri City, Texas, Falcon mainly skates in his garage inventing tricks like the Falcon slide — which was featured in Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4. A project 32 years in the making, Falcon has always wanted to be a combination of Hawk and Rodney Mullen. If this trailer he released last week is any indication, we’re in for a treat.
Also a horror film director, Falcon is definitely someone who should be on your radar if you love people exploring the different possibilities on skateboards. Check out his YouTube channel for some of his greatest hits, and stay tuned for a release date for “Skateboard Revelations” — hopefully it’s sooner rather than later.
