Shane O’Neil, aka nugget, has been leaking footage into the skate world for some time now as a relatively unknown, but nowadays he is recognized as one of the most technically impressive skaters out there. From his part in Nike SB’s Debacle, to his pro debut video for skate mental but especially with his part in TransWorld’s Not Another TransWorld Video O’Neill has proven his abilities in the skate videos and has set his eyes on a new prize in recent years and has been a regular on the competition circuits. O’Neill says his favorite tricks to watch are crazy, techy and tricky. However, he prefers to skate smooth and not get too technical – hah, tell that to his switch double 360 flip! O’Neill has been seen taking trick requests from fans because he thinks they come up with some great and crazy ideas. O’Neill is nothing short of creative when it comes to inventing tricks and creating unique lines, and when it comes to getting technical on a ledge he is in a league of his own.
