10 Years After “Static II”: An Interview with Paul Shier 14

10 Years After “Static II”: An Interview with Paul Shier

After realizing the other day that we’re at the 10 year mark from the release of ‘Static 2: The Invisibles’, it seemed like as good a time as any to catch up with the skaters who made the video what it was. So in this first installment we’re catching up with one of my personal favorites, Paul Shier. There are some friends who you could go for 5-10 years without seeing and then w/in 5 minutes of running back into them you’d pick up like no time had passed at all. Paul Shier is one of those friends. Probably one of the best dudes I’ve met through skateboarding and definitely one of the funnest people to travel with, Paul and I have traveled together from London to LA, Cairo to Transylvania and from Texas to San Francisco mostly in pursuit of the ever elusive goal of ‘footy’. And, mostly, while working towards the ‘Static II’ video released in 2004. We caught up with Paul to stroll down memory lane and check out where he’s at now.
