Grant Taylor SOTY Sesh

Grant Taylor and friends shred SF to celebrate his election as 2011 Skater of the Year in this "SOTY Weekend" by Independent Trucks.

Take the finest transition skating from the eighties, put it inside the the sketchiest modern behemoths of concrete found in skateparks today, multiply the size of the airs by two or three, then mix in one the most unique and aggressive approaches to regular street skating around. The end result should be Grant Taylor. Whether gapping out to 50-50 down a double set or reaching previously-inconceivable heights after a few feet of vert, Grant continues to effortlessly blend two different breeds of skateboarding that people otherwise assume to be miles apart from one another. While considered by some to be the “quiet type,” there’s nothing reserved about Grant the second he steps on a skateboard.
