Mike Taylor


I was born in Santa Barbara and started skating in 1974.  I was fortunate enough to ride most of the great West Coast Skateparks from back in that era.  I still have my membership cards from Big-O, Marina Del Rey, Whittier, Lakewood, Upland and Del Mar and our local parks, Sparks and Golf & Fun.mike_taylor_opt

I started working for Powell Peralta in 1979.  I was thirteen.  I still work here today and love it.  I left and came back a few times to work at a retail skate store, a Tahoe Ski Resort, and to work on over 300 skateparks in 17 states and 5 countries.

I love surfing, snowboarding, music, my daughters Serina and Amie, my girlfriend Laurie,  and of course skateboarding!
