Baker has a really good (and sneaky) way of letting their ams know when they're goin' pro! Rather than give the am an advance heads up and let him slowly get used to the idea of being pro, they surprise the shit out of him with all his friends and fellow Baker team members at a party in his honor.
Braydon Szafranski was no different. He had recently missed a few flights to return home from Australia, so Baker boss Andrew Reynolds stressed to him that he really needed to be home by Friday, April 7 for an important Baker party at Brooklyn Projects skate shop in Hollywood. But Drew didn’t tell Braydon what the party was for. Somehow, Braydon made it home Friday and showed up at the party that night.
And he's lucky he did, as the shop was full of Braydon's friends, family and…his new pro deck! Everyone jumped on Braydon when he walked in, and the look on his face when he realized what was going on was priceless. Robin from Baker set the whole thing up, and hired girls to serve up drinks and wear skimpy outfits that said "Braydon" on their chests and "Szafranski" on their butts. What a night!
Braydon’s first Baker deck will be in shops soon, so go out and set one up. Congratulations, Braydon. You’ve made the big time!
