***Excerpt from Corporate Grind by Kevin Susienka***
Control is a state of mind. It is the ability to compile inspiration, adversity and talent simultaneously and make shit happen. The shit that happens is really only one percent of skateboarding on the whole. And Clark, 24, has worked inspirationally hard to make it happen. Some skateboarders are complete messes. Their highlights come when they are asleep at the wheel. Taylor Clark’s accomplishments come from skating on his own terms, which seems to translate to hard, goddamned enjoyable work and a laser-like focus. “It’s just doing whatever it is you feel you want to do that day”, says Clark. “There's no schedule to skating and that appeals to me. My whole week is based off of schedule and routine, so skating is the perfect escape from that life. Some days you'll have a heavy day of filming and trying something for hours, and others, you'll chill at the park and work on a new trick. Skating is always changing.”
