WHO THE F*CK IS THIS GUY?

Andrew Reynolds has been riding since he was 9 years old. 9 years old! He was already obsessively watching Powell videos at that age, and he dreamed of being as great as the skateboarders he saw in those iconic films. Well, mission accomplished. He blasted onto the skateboarding scene in the early 1990s. After getting a phone call from Tony Hawk (you’ve heard of him right?), Reynolds joined Birdhouse.

In 2000, Reynolds set out to launch Baker with Jay Strickland. Baker became one of the most rebellious, independent and kickass skateboard deck brands on the scene, inspired by taking what all the big sellout brands did and doing the opposite.

Inspired by the greats like Hawk, Mark Gonzales, and Tom Penny, Reynolds is now inspiring his own generation of obsessive followers.

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE.

Take it from one of Reynolds’ teammates — “You’re a complete f*cking moron if you don’t think that Andrew is the best skater in the world.”
