Two Skating Brothers

Two Skating Brothers

Who would’ve thought that a walk into a Wal-Mart would change the lives of two brothers. Adam and Nick McNeil both walked into a Wal-Mart a little over a year ago and decided to buy some skateboards. At the time, they saw it as a way to pass the time or just something to do. After only an hour, they landed their first tricks, a pop shove it for Nick, and a Kick flip for Adam, they realized this is something they could see themselves doing for awhile and for more than just fun.

Both of them are regular-footed skaters, putting left foot forward on the board, but both have different styles of skating. Adam is a street skater, he likes to grind rails and just do tricks off the ground, and will occasionally take to the sky and go big BMX style. Nick on the other hand, is a vert skater, he likes to fly high and go on and off ramps. Although their different skaters, they can both agree on their favorite spot to skate, Park City Skate Park; another favorite would be Edgemore. They both would like to be sponsored but unfortunately neither are as of now. Adam has had sponsors in the past, Nick, however, has not.

Adam’s biggest influence in skating is Chris Cole, and Nick’s is Chris Haslam. Both are great professional skaters, but the two appreciate each of the pros’ skill, talent, and hard work. They also skate different types of boards. Adam rides an Alien Workshop board, while Nick skates a Bamboo board. When it comes to tricks, both do their own thing. Adam’s hardest trick has been a fakie tre’ flip, where as Nick’s is an early grab 360 to blindside, but both of them have been able to perfect these tough tricks and would say they are the toughest tricks they have learned. Both are trying to learn a new trick at this time. For Adam it is a laser flip and Nick is trying to land a hardflip. Sibling rivalry has been between the two for as long as they can remember and this transitioned right into skating.

S.K.A.T.E. A game in skateboarding in which one person does a trick and the other must copy it, if not done correctly they get a letter until they spell skate. This is the McNeil’s favorite game to play whether it’s in the driveway or at the skate park. They also skate others in competitions, Nick skates almost every skate comp there is, Adam on the other hand skates competition whenever possible; being older, he has less time to skate than Nick. The two brothers may skate against each other, but they always try to help each other out, especially when it comes to getting hurt.

A broken elbow, a couple sprained or twisted ankles are the injuries Adam has suffered throughout skating. Nick, however hasn’t broken anything. The worst he has done is fall off a quarter pipe on his head, luckily he was fine. Both, are fine and skating right now, and do not plan on getting injured any time soon. After their injuries, both have taken precautions such as wearing their helmets and occasionally elbow pads, to prevent injuries. They see injuries as time away from skating.

The McNeil’s future plans for skating are a little different. Adam plans to skate for fun and if it works out to go pro then that would be awesome. Nick on the other hand wants to pursue skating as a career and would love to go pro and get flow. But both agree that when skating, you gotta “have fun with it,” and “try and try again until you get it.”
