It’s hard to really even imagine a time when Shane O’Neill wasn’t able to make the hardest tricks look like nothing. This doesn’t seem fair. So it seemed like a smart idea to dig up an old Shane part to you know, sort of give the rest of us hope, like, “See, even Shane O’Neill had to start somewhere.” But then, you go back and find an eight year old part from his earliest Skate Mental days and realize that Shane O’Neill has ALWAYS been able to make the hardest tricks look like nothing. He’s one of those people that’s also probably really good at golf, table tennis, and spinning a ball on his finger. He can most likely juggle really well too, and do magic tricks. I bet he learned kickflips his first day on the board, in under 20 minutes. But enough, click play and see how well Shane’s had it even as a relatively unknown Australian kid back in 2009.
