Jordan Taylor: Five Greats

JordanTaylor Title
Jordan Taylor is not your usual get-in-the-van-and-go pro skater. He’s a spot-hunter extraordinaire, a connoisseur of ‘90s entertainment and a budding entrepreneur with his accessory brand Loosey. On the heels of his new part, we got the versatile WKNDer to list off some of his favorite figures from skating, comedy and of course the 1990s.
