The moment everyone has been waiting for...
Shane O'neill is now officially riding professionally for Primitive Skateboards!
Shane O'neill is officially riding for Primitive Skateboards!
Who else is stoked for this? The graphics that he had on Skate Mental were super funny; however the art team at Primitive has been on a role lately. Knocking out some of the most elegant and simplistic graphics that have graced the bottom of a skateboard. Oh, and who can forget the famous Gold Leaf Skateboard Deck that Paul Rodriguez was riding when he quit Plan B Skateboards?
I am not going to lie... I saw this coming. Paul took the same approach when he decided to leave Plan B for his own venture.
Paul Rodriguez:
  • Me, Myself & I (the title should have been foreshadowing) - 2011
  • Officially quit Plan B Skateboards - 2013
  • The famous blank gold skateboard - 2013-2014
  • Primitve Skateboards is started - 2014
Shane O'neill:
  • Shane Goes (this title should have also been foreshadowing) - 2015
  • Officially quit Skate Mental Skateboards - 2015
  • The famous blank question mark skateboard - 2015
  • Shane is Pro for Primitve Skateboards - 2015
  • Shane has a new part dropping this month as well!


Did anyone else predict this? What are your thoughts? Have you ever skated a Primitive skateboard? Have you ever skated a Skate Mental?

Please let me know how you feel about this!

I’ve ridden both primitive and skate mental. I’ve found that primitive have a longer lasting pop and is an amazing brand. Skate Mental was also a nice and solid board but wasn’t as strong as my primitive. I loved my first primitive so much that I just got a new Shane O’Neill “Gold Spider” and the “Question Mark” Boards!
