Started in 2000 by artist Jay Strickland and pro skateboarder Andrew Reynolds.

Baker took in riders from Zero, Stereo and Birdhouse and promoted a new set of skateboarding values. From the start Baker has been intertwined with a long list of skate pro's. Originally distributed through Blitz up until 2007 when Jim Greco, Erik Ellington and Andrew Reynolds established the North Hollywood-based Bakerboys Distribution, a company that now distributes Baker Skateboards, along with Shake Junt, Brigada Sunglasses, Deathwish Skateboards, Heroin and Volume 4, all brands are associated with past or current Baker riders or associates.

The Skateboarding world is more incest and smaller than you think or know.
