About Baker Skateboards
Baker Skateboards is an American‚ skateboarding‚ company founded in 2000 by professional skateboarder‚ Andrew Reynolds and artist Jay Strickland.
The company’s main products are skateboard decks, soft goods, accessories and wheels. In 1999 Reynolds left Birdhouse and started Baker along with other professional skateboarders from Stereo, Zero, and other companies.
The company was named after a lifestyle in which a person “gets baked” (smokes and experiences the effects of cannabis) and skateboards every day.
Reynolds has since renounced his party lifestyle and even warned kids about the perils of following his path. He remains one of the most respected skateboarders of his generation.
