Andrew Reynolds

Andrew Reynolds Biography

Skip to the rants (118)

Andrew Reynolds is a true skateboarding legend. He’s one of the most well-known and respected pros ever, a tried and true lifer who never fails to deliver the most technical tricks the biggest way with total style.

Andrew Reynolds hails from Lakeland, Florida, about a stone's throw from Tampa, where he started skating at age nine back in 1987. Old Powell videos of the time inspired Andrew and friends' to start attacking launch ramps and wall rides.

Later, the Skatepark of Tampa provided occasional fun for Andrew. He turned pro for Birdhouse back in 1995 and promptly racked up a couple of 1st place showings at contests. These days, Andrew doesn't like or enter contests as much--even though he's done well in them over the years.

Raw Info: Andrew loves diamonds, collecting jewelry, shopping for clothes and DVDs, playing guitar and editing video footage of himself and his friends on his PowerBook.

Andrew made the big move from the sticks of Florida to Huntington Beach, California in 1997. It was there he encountered the "Hey, bro!" lifestyle of So Cal surfers, neo-rockabilly greasers and other random bits of tattooed, pierced flotsam and driftwood in all their glory. Andrew quickly shed his Southern accent and slowly migrated to Hollywood, where the lure of the constant nightlife nearly swallows up a skater's desire to ride.

Drew used to party hard with Jim Greco, Erik Ellington, Ali Boulala and the Piss Drunks, but now he’s totally clean, sober and skating better than ever--frontside kickflipping his six-foot, two-inch frame like a there's million more tomorrows. As everyone knows, Drew is also the founder and owner of Baker Skateboards, one of the most highly respected companies of all time.

These days, Andrew lives in Los Angeles, CA with his daughter, Stella.

Andrew rides for Emerica, Baker, Independent, Baker Wheels, Altamont, Shake Junt and Nixon.
