Mike O’Meally on the trick, from Transworld, “Shine On, You Crazy Diamond” (2007):
“The first time I realized Shane was special was when he was talking to himself. Now, a lot of mentally gifted (and mentally challenged) people have been known to chatter away, but the difference with Shane was that his one-man monologue took place in the middle of a midnight Smith grind down the legendary El Toro handrail in Orange County. He was yammering to himself about who knows what, and then, within minutes, he was poised perfectly on a nosegrind and landed it in one try-no bails and no worries.”
