Memory Screen – Tim O’Connor

 

 

Tim O’Connor is one of most people’s all time favorite skateboarders, with an amazing style backed up by an even more amazing trick selection it’s easy to see why he was one of the most prolific skaters from the mid 90’s to the mid 00’s. His parts in classic videos like Eastern Exposure 3 (1996), Element’s World Tour (2000) and Habitat’s Mosaic (2003) showcased his go in ”the hard way” approach but still managed to make everything look super smooth. Even though he didn’t put out tonnes of footage like by today’s standards the stuff that he did release was solid gold. During the late 00’s Tim had to undergo reconstructive surgery on a dodgy left ankle which subsequently led to his retirement. He is still involved in various aspects of skateboarding – most well known would be his highly popular podcast for Jenkem Magazine. Memory Screen has made this part to remind us how truly good Tim O’Connor was on his board, a fine example of another skateboarder way ahead for the time that they were in so press play above now. Tim also made a commentary video for this edit which you can view below.
