Shane O’Neill’s Route One Interview Pt.2

I can do ledge tricks on transition, but I've always wanted to learn to, not skate like GT, but be able to carve..."

Following on from the first part last week, Shane O’Neill’s Route One Interview Pt.2 has now been uploaded for you to check out and can be found below. This one sees Shane covering such diverse areas of discussion as getting a miniramp in his garden, the progression of technical ledge skating, the rise of standalone one person skate video edits, his upcoming plans (having just left Primitive Skateboards) and more.

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. Now get hyped for whatever this board company he’s starting next is all about…

“I can do ledge tricks on transition, but I’ve always wanted to learn to carve around properly and be able to…not skate like someone like Grant Taylor, but be able to carve.”  Ginger Steve would be proud…

“Following on from last week’s first half, we are proud to present the conclusion of our epic chat with Antipodean skate royalty (and Nike SB pro) Shane O’Neill. Covering everything from his feelings on Jenkem’s spoof ‘Zigram 23’ movie to what he considers possible on a flat bar, this is where standard questions go out of the window and Shane opens up about his opinions on a whole host of topics. Essential viewing!”
