SLUG Skate Photo Feature: Taylor Green
These photos are the result of three trips to the library, two (and a half) broken boards and a lot of skin and blood from Taylor Green’s back. I have to give it to the kid—he isn’t a quitter. The first time we went, I had actually just met him. We ran into Dirk Hogan and Bambi skating Downtown and pulled over to see if they wanted to shoot a photo. Green had this crazy idea of late shoving the Downtown Library. Not to dissuade anyone from jumping down massive stairs—we went straight there—but he proceeded to break his board and then Hogan’s board. The second time, he drove straight to SLC from work in Layton, and after a dozen attempts, we got kicked out by security. By the third and final trip, Green was determined to land it—17 tries later, he rolled away.
