The Rookies: Grant Taylor
"A classic skate rat"

Posted: May 5, 2010

Grant’s got really good backside ollies and skates with a boned-out stance. I’m partial to goofy-footers; there’s a really rad goofy style that I don’t see in regulars. Ethan Fowler, Donny Barley, Chad Bartie—Grant’s got a cool blend of those styles. He can do great 360 flips and perfect body jars. He has the ability to skate all terrain, and he can cling on a handrail, too, and it looks great. In Debacle, he kickflips this big set of stairs and then ollies a grass patch and a wall and drops 10 feet. Then, of course, he 50-50’s that long, flat rail, where he skips over that gap and grinds the rest. He’s an original, and reminds me of someone I would have skated with growing up. A classic skate rat. —Brian Anderson

The King of the Road issue never fails to serve up its own special recipe for brutality. This year, reigning champs Birdhouse went head to head with Element and Flip in an all-out no-holds-barred battle for the crown. Beers were butt-chugged, records were shattered (along with a leg) and insanity ensued with every page turn of the book. Included with this issue is the Hell of a Year DVD which contains the heaviest hits from thrashermagazine.com in 2014.
