You don’t have to be worried if you purchase a skateboard from the Baker. They always try to provide quality products.
Baker is a USA-based brand and Andrew Reynolds is the founder of Baker skateboards. After discussing with Tony Hawk and Per Welinder in 1999, he started the business in 2000 with a partner.
Is Baker a Good Skateboard Brand?
Yes, Baker is a good skateboard brand.
If you are a bicycle rider, you will know, what things should be added as the features, what things should be avoided, what should be the tire quality, what should be the seat quality. Am I right?
The same happened to Baker skateboard. Andrew Reynolds was a professional skateboarder. He has a good relationship with many skateboarders.
As a result, he knows what should be the deck type for flip tricks, hill flips, etc. which wheels are suitable for rough roads, which bearings are required for speed, etc.
He applied all his experiences on these skateboards and was able to manufacture quality skateboards. In 2008 they won the top-selling skateboard brand under the Blitz distribution umbrella. So there is no doubt about the quality and performance of Baker Skateboards.
