Robert Neal is Primitive‘s “Where Did He Come From?” am. If you’ve seen him skate in person, you were probably left wondering how this dude can remain so positive even after taking the harshest slams. Well, accessories brand Rastaclat wondered the same thing and they produced an insightful profile exploring the taxing mental realities of skateboarding.
Neal makes it look all too easy, but he shares that the key ingredient is persistence. “Always believe in yourself and just stay motivated and, eventually, everything just manifests to what you want it to be,” he says. “Just put the work in and keep going. Don’t quit!” Neal doesn’t kneel when the going gets tough.
