Skater of the Year is an annual event given by Thrasher Magazine. The event started in 1990, and it has become one of the most respected awards in the skateboarding society. Unlike a competition with judges, Skate of the Year is chosen by votes of the Thrasher readers. This Year, the most vote goes to Grant Taylor.
Grant Taylor’s father Thomas was also a pro skater in the 80s. He started a skate shop in 90’s, where Grant was born and raised. Grew up in an environment with skateboards all around the wall, he was closely inspired and participated in the production industry along with his father.
Remy Stratton, a photographer and skateboarder affiliated with Volcom who has met Grant Taylor when he was a young as two years old, cannot help but be amazed. When Grand was six, he was already recognized as a talented skater who was well blending in to the surrounding adults despite his age. Ever since he was little he dares to shred anything that comes up to his path. He has devoted his life into skating, and we are proud to see him entitled the Thrasher Magazine’s Skater of the Year.
