Shane O’Neill’s Route One Interview Pt.1
Part one of Shane O’Neill‘s Route One Interview, captured during the controlled chaos of Street League, offers the opportunity for some insight into the Antipodean cyborg and what makes him tick. From enjoying the delights of Milton Keynes (something which has possibly never happened to a non skateboarder) to his feelings about Street League Skateboarding breaking out of its normal locales and from the Melbourne skate scene to his memories of skating with Lewis Marnell, this is one of the more in depth interviews we’ve heard/read with O’Neill and worth checking out for an insight into undoubtedly one of the most talented people in the pro skateboarding spotlight today.
Press play to hear what he has to say and then do yourself a favour and remind yourself of his welcome to Primitive Skateboards video part, which dropped a couple of years ago and cemented his place at the forefront of technical skateboarding progression.
“I wish they would build an outdoor park so it could stay, it’s kind of a bummer to see some sick park just gone.”
“Aussie skate legend and Nike SB pro Shane sits down for the first half of his epic two part interview with us, discussing Street League, getting on Nike, memories of Lewis Marnell and so much more. Filmed in sunny Shoreditch prior to May’s SLS London event, the conversation ran so long we simply couldn’t cram it all into one clip; meaning part two is coming your way at the same time next week!”
