"Jackson Taylor is 21 years old, and has been into skating for 10 years. He's from Newport, North Carolina. He had a car, couldn't keep it, flipped a coin - heads: California, tails: Carolina - and got California, probably thinking he's gonna make it big. So, he comes here, not knowing anybody, only relying his humble fuckin' nice guy attitude. He says he tried surfing and barely got into old bicycles and Scott Bourne rules. Jack is one of the coolest guys you'll ever meet - not very punctual, but that doesn't make him a bad guy. In this order, he loves his mom, Consolidated, Skateworks, Solar and Kastel." - Jason Jessee
Consolidated pokes a little fun at Hands Across America.
