Even tho we're just making the announcement now, Rob is actually kind of an OG on the team because when we saw him and connected with him, Primitive was under a year old, it was just me, Nick, Carlos and Bastien. Just four pros and one flow kid. We took him under our wing to help him progress and evolve in to what we believed he would become, and when I watch Rob skate now it’s hard to believe. He’s been with us on so many trips and skated so many demos with us, I think kids see him as part of the team already anyway. When the people are demanding it, usually that’s when it’s time to make it official so here it is, Robert Neal: welcome to the team. Officially!” - Paul Rodriguez

Tre Williams welcome to Primitive Video Part.
“I was first introduced to Tre's skating through Robert Neal Robert was watching skate videos on YouTube and he passed me his phone: “Hey check this out, it’s my homie Tre”. Straight away, I knew Tre was really sick: every trick that he did was really proper, and his style and form was really pleasing to watch, like he would front blunt big ass rails but he’d be in full control and pop out at the end. I knew straight away we had to look into him. Now that I have got to know Tre, I can also tell you that he carries himself confidently but he’s very humble and an all-around good funny dude. Tre skates really well but he also works hard and pushes himself and his skating; you can tell that he sees the goal, has the vision and he’s determined to get there. Every time that I have had the opportunity to introduce someone new to the team, I get more and more excited to be part of launching their dream and to have that connection with them. Tre doesn’t even know yet, but this is the beginning of something that he has been dreaming about and I know that he will look back in a few years’ time and think “Wow, those were some really special times”. He’s just getting started and has such a bright future ahead of him, I‘m happy and excited to welcome Tre Williams to the Primitive Skate team”. Paul Rodriguez
