Faces of The Frynge: Mikey Taylor

Posted by The Frynge on

“Everything in you is saying do not do this, and you not only have to block that out, but stop it from hindering what you’re trying to accomplish. There’s a certain mind that can handle it and there's a certain mind that can’t."
If you've ever seen Mikey Taylor give an interview, or had the chance to interact with him, he's one of the nicest dude's you'll ever meet.  But don't get it twisted, he's also one of hardest working guys on the scene. It takes talent, hustle and a whole lot of determination to get to where he's at in the skateboarding world.

From hustling to find sponsors in high school by sending out his sponsor-me-tapes (yes, VHS tapes for the social media generation), to becoming one of the original competitors on the Street League Skateboarding Tour, Mikey's experienced the evolution of the sport firsthand.

His life has changed with the times as well. He now has to balance skating with being a father, as well as managing his responsibilities as a business owner (shout out to Villager and Sovrn)

Regardless of whether you skate or not, there's so much to pull from this episode. So with that, enjoy episode 4!
