It’s official. Shane O’Neill has just announced on his insta just now that he will be joining Primitive Skateboards alongside new partner Paul Rodriguez. O’Neill will become part owner in the brand as well as a pro.
“I now ride for and am part owner of Primitive, they also have let me hire my friends for filming, photos, edits and really anything they need. Paul Rodriguez is one of my best friends and it only made sense to make it happen. Either way we are stoked and it’s all about the skating not the politics, hope you enjoy the part Dec 1st on Thrasher”.
Two weeks back, Luan Oliveira was welcomed to the Nike team and promtly invited Paul Rodriguez to visit Brazil for a session. That session was filmed and here it is with mostly demo and some street footage.
The Plan B team hit the road last weekend in the US on their United Tour and also took the Element team with them.
Footage of their stop at Simi Valley’s Skatelab has been posted online with Paul Rodriguez, PJ Ladd, Torey Pudwill and Element guests Levi Brown, Nick Garcia, Chad Tim Tim, Chad Muska and Mark Appleyard.
Zero’s Chris Cole and Plan B’s P-Rod were the main attraction at a new Microsoft store opening in the States this month. The pair showed up alongside Rob Dyrdek to plug the Street League event that now has the 24th and final pro rider signed up with a chance to snatch over $1m in prize money and that man is Shane O’Neill, not been a bad year for him so far has it?
