I've been wanting to get this guy on here for a while and today seems like the right day. Neal rode for Schmitt Stix and stayed with the change to the New Deal. He had a graphic on New Deal that featured part of Superchunk's "No Pocky For Kitty" album cover, which was used with permission from the band.
When the New Deal ditched its pros, he switched to the Black Label. Neal is still going and I think he recently won a vert contest somewhere. The internet was less than useful, but I did find an interview with him from 1998. You can search for that on your own time. I'm not posting a link.
Neal's got a photo show at the Skate Park Of Tampa Snack Bar this weekend during the Tampa Pro.
Bryce Kanights took the picture.
