Baker Skateboards and Scion AV have been teaming up and going big for months, but possibly the biggest moment came when Baker founder Andrew Reynolds nailed a kickflip over a Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0. Members of the Baker Skate Team were in the midst of a trip through California in a Scion iA and a Scion iM when they stopped at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park.
The crew spent the day getting loose on the asphalt and sitting in the passenger seat as Scion Racing Team member Ken Gushi gave up-close demonstrations of his drifting skills. As things were wrapping up, the Baker boys decided they wanted to try to jump the FR-S. Cyril Jackson was doing huge ollies over it, while Tristan Funkhouser and Bryan Herman were doing grabs. As the sun began to set, everyone else backed off as Reynolds went for the kickflip.
Be on the lookout for the upcoming Scion AV Presents: The Baker Skateboards EP, featuring the track “End to End” by Earthless which was just released yesterday via Noisey. Also, to learn more about the Baker story, watch Andrew Reynolds’s interview with Prince Paul on the Scion AV All-Purpose Show.
