Baker Skateboards was a very monumental injection into the world of skateboard near the turn of the century. Without it we may of been faced with severe bordem and mediocrity. If Andrew Reynolds and Jay Strickland never decided to release the Baker Bootleg skate video, skateboarding would be in dire straights today.
Around the year 2000 Andrew Reynolds was skating for Birdhouse Skateboards. He wasn’t into the kiddie style atmosphere the brand had. Being Tony Hawk’s company Birdhouse had to cater to a younger audience and therefore couldn’t release board graphics, videos and advertisements that were considered too risk-ay. Slightly disgruntled, Andrew set off to start his own skateboard company that was based on his vision of what a brand should be.
The first debut video for the brand was Baker 2G. This video starred Reynolds, Jim Greco, Mike Maldonado, Terry Kennedy, Evan Hernandez and a few others I can’t think of at this moment. This video really set the tone and image of the company from that point forward.
