At the start of the 20 th century, Andrew Reynolds and Jay Strickland left Birdhouse and started their own company, Baker Skateboards. Unfortunately Strickland left the business and Reynolds bought over Strickland’s shares of the company. As of right now, Baker is under Blitz Distribution and sells skateboard decks, t-shirts, bearings wheels, skateboard wax, decals, and pins and buttons. If Andrew Reynolds is sponsored by Independent trucks, you know he’s doing something right. Support Baker.
