Paul Rodriguez is obsessed with progression. The guy is constantly honing his skills, learning tricks, dialing staple tricks, going bigger, popping higher and just straight up getting better. It’s that continual forward motion that continues to make P. Rod stand out as one of the greats.

We recently got a hold of Paul and hit him with some WHAT’s. Read on and get to know a legend in the making.
